SMOOTH CONFESS

Akvile Jancauskaite studied in both UK London and Denmark. The brand is set out to create conventional pieces that are explored and reworked through clever detailing. The label is started in 2014 with a first collection called Zinesters. The spirit of post punk subculture, aggressive minimalism and garage aesthetics reflects in the designs.
