Mutate. Born in the summer of 2002 on the beaches of José Ignacio, with a collection of men's clothes inspired by a trip to India and in some characteristics of its clothing and the use of organic fabrics. In the following season the first store opened in José Ignacio. The interior design was set with vintage furniture and objects that some customers wanted to buy, giving Mutate's owner " Gonzalo Massa " the kick to start a curating job that identifies Mutate up to now. Mutate is A Lifestyle Concept Store with clothes, rather than a fashion store. The nomadic and cosmopolitan spirit leads Gonzalo to travel the world in search of unique pieces, with a special accent in the modernism of the 40s - 50s and the Nordic design. The result is a collection that respects and represents the values that guide Gonzalo: aesthetics, quality and sustainable consumption. Mutate is A Must visit Concept Store !

Nimo With Love. Nicole Mohrmann's passions and talents are woven into each garment of the Nimo collection. Scanning the globe for inspiration, not afraid to leap into bold layers of color or emphasize the necessity for finite details. Little butterfly embellishments, or a single row of natural beads completes the flirty and fun feeling without overpowering the silhouettes. The inspiration for Nimo was launched in 2009 when Nicole Mohrmann was unable to find an up to date bohemian-inspired collection for her shops. No stranger to fashion, with over 16 years experience in the business, her journey brought her to India. Nicole Mohrmann's keen eye for chic fashion has attracted the European press for years.
