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.
Most of Lampedusa’s novel is set during the time of the Risorgimento, specifically during the period when Giuseppe Garibaldi, the hero of Italian unification, swept through Sicily with his forces, known as The Thousand. The WORLD The Thousand Shirt's are classic tailored long sleeve dress shirts in fascinating cotton fabrications.
