March 24, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

While I personally find myself more drawn to the, shall we say, more classic designs that moVas creates, I can’t help but to find the crazier stuff (now finding a home under the Exotica banner) at least interesting to consider – and perhaps to dream about wearing.  The most recent introduction to this line is…
