The nexus of the collection is the print, made up of a series of objects organized on a colored background. Pista comes from the idea of cataloguing various discarded objects as a way of ordering city accumulation. These pieces, seemingly unrelated, acquire new meaning once grouped and sorted. The found clues (pistas) have a use once again, creating new patterns through photographs. In the collection different finishes and fabrics are combined. The pattern in the collection, based on original photographs taken exclusively for the collection by Las Coleccionistas, appears as a print applied to silk scarves, to polyester on the backpack, and as knitted fabric on the socks, (the original pieces being simplified in this case.)


The fabrics used range from natural to synthetic, contrasting the use of silk, knit, and polyester. The mix and choice of materials is intrinsically related to city life and they adapt to their use and to the function of the garments. The result is a very colorful, unisex collection of designs reduced to their essentials, with references to sports aesthetics.
