Elle and Cristina both grew up with generational pop culture game-changers like MTV and have been collectors for years, amassing an extensive archive reflective of their icons. These artists shaped the world as much as they shaped their ideas and experiences.
THE FAN will release a new concept quarterly of limited edition styles that will never be restocked or repeated. THE FAN is at once both a nostalgic nod to influential giants and a new, bold statement that hasn’t been made yet.
