By creating Moonchild, the French designer Pascale Koehl takes up the challenge to offer clothes handmade in Peru, wishing to transmit ancestral knowledge of the Incas Andes, through innovative design.
Bohemian and gypsy-inspired, the collection reinvents the myths and legends of Native American through the futuristic vision of a new Odyssey aspiring to a fantasized future.
