“I created the “Alps Love” design for Victorinox, inspired by my love for the beautiful country of Switzerland and the love of my life. It portrays a typical young couple in love in the mountains and the classic Alpine pursuit of climbing, whilst honoring the traditional Swiss art of paper cutting.”
“Traveling has always been a great passion of mine and once I started studying architecture (5 years ago), I became ever more eager to discover new places. My design is inspired by Cappadocia, a place where fantastic topography meets human history to create an amazing feeling of freedom.”
“My design was inspired by Tiki gods, the ancient oracles of Hawaiian kahunas, and the flora and fauna typical of the Hawaii islands. ‘Aloha’ is translated as ‘Greetings’ but it also means hello, goodbye, affection and love. ‘Aloha Kakou’ means ‘Aloha to all’.”
