Antoine TAVA

Description: The idea behind the Midnight Drips collection is that there are always two sides to every story told. Through this collection, Antoine Tava reveals a part of his alter ego. On one side, you have the glowing moon that represents a deep sense of vulnerability. The moon is a warm-natured and loving symbol, something people relate to and puts them at ease. On the other hand, the lunar eclipse represents our hidden truths waiting to be uncovered and reveal themselves to the light of day.
