Altogether Lost is a men's / women's collection designed in a futuristic, but also wearable style. The cuts are thoughtful, as she designs each of her collections. This one was created by drawing on paper, continuing on her previous ideas and work. When she designs, she thinks about what new or different she can invent. Aleksic always has essential clothing items in my head, which we wear every day. The scarf is tailored, but does not serve as an accessory, but is part of the garment. The men's shirt model features a deconstructed tie along the central part of the chest. The tie is tailored, constructed in detail, giving an innovative look. Details appear on collars, cuffs, belts, buckles. The materials are of different textures, a combination of light and heavier materials such as wool and artificial leather.
