Space 1999 models are inspired by the 70’s TV series, set in year 1999 when the nuclear waste stored on the Moon's far side explodes, knocking the Moon out of orbit and sending it, as well as the 311 inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha, hurtling uncontrollably into space. The moon images, the design from the wardrobe, the extraterrestrial characters and the spots from the meteoric impacts in the face of the moon inspires this line made with leather and Burel (Portuguese 100% wool cloth water resistance and semi-artisanal). They reflect the bright side of the moon, with intense and vibrant colors and silver spots, like light beams.

Burel – a 100% wool cloth produced by a company of family origin, located in Manteigas, Serra da Estrela. Burel's authenticity results from a sequence of specific operations in the manufacturing process. The wool, after being shorn, washed, spun, woven into the organ and woven into the loom, is trodden on a machine called “pisão”, which knocks and scalds the wool, transforming the fabric into burel, making it tighter, more resistant and waterproof.
