64 x Pipolaki
It has become a news not to be missed! Following the success of the first two collections presented in December 2015, Pipolaki and the brand 64 renew their collaboration this year. For the 2017-2018 autumn/winter season, the collection consists essentially of vintage design : for adults and children. They have been chosen according to the winter trend on the accessory !
