Their minimal design reminds of California. It is often thought that it’s an American brand, but it was actually born in Italy. It is very popular for people in their teens to 20s who like casual clothes. White T-shirt, which is nothing, once wears it, it feels like “I was looking for this silhouette!”, And the silhouette and length are exquisite. I realized in Europe, there are often no xs size clothes, and clothes are bigger than these in Japan. But most of their clothes are made small, so I definitely recommend this brand for those who are often struggling to find small size. The price is also reasonable. There are 3 stores in the center of Milan.
