Manuela Arcari is the designer: her precise, decisive look of a woman who creates womenswear does not translate into a formula; in fact, she offers infinite ways of being. The tone is concentrated, rarefied at times, yet, between the folds, the clean cuts and the geometries, one can discover memories and emotions. Simplicity, after all, is complex, full of nuances. Sensuality not always, and not necessarily, means baring it all. Ter et Bantine is a style – reductionist and raw, concrete and cerebral, pure, subtle – in which what is not there is just as important, or maybe more important, of what is there.
