Can a leopard change their spots?
WORLD's SS18 collection has taken the famous idiom from the Old Testament and turned it on its head, preferably saying: Leopards can change their spots. Giuseppe di Lampedusa's renowned 1958 novel 'The Leopard', acted as further inspiration of how we as people must allow ourselves to constantly evolve in the face of an ever-changing world we live in. WORLD celebrates the individual and this season each piece or ensemble demands you to wear your personality with pride.
In addition to being the setting scene of Lampedusa’s novel, Sicily is the largest Mediterranean island and is just off the "toe" of Italy's "boot." Its rich history is reflected in sites like the Valley of the Temples, the well-preserved ruins of 7 monumental, Doric-style Greek temples, and in the Byzantine mosaics at the Cappella Palatina, a former royal chapel in capital city Palermo. The WORLD Sicily Shirt is a losoe fitting shirt style with an inverted front pleat, petal sleeves and longer back panel cut from a wide striped cotton shirting.
