“My inspiration started with a picture of my family in the late 70s; I thought my mom was so chic. I was also very inspired by these pictures of manta rays and came up with a very film-noir esthetic for the collection, which is very chic, but also very dark,” said designer Mandy Coon.

“I was inspired by Mandy’s film noir and punk references. I chose to create lines for intensity but to keep some negative space in the lid, keeping a modern shape. It’s futuristic cat eye meets cyborg punk princess,” said Lead Artist Francelle Daly.
