High Summer 2016 was influenced by the Camargue gypsies and their eclectic bi-annual festival in Santes-Maries where Romanies gather in the South of France from all over Europe.
Romantic Flamenco ruffles with contrast piping, beautiful antique Broderie Anglaise from Provence, traditional Rajasthani embroidery and hand printed textiles with hints of influential designer Giorgio di Sant'Angelo.
I took these mixed cultural references and reinterpreted them into a relaxed, feminine, beachy collection, using Indian artisanal textile techniques and natural fibers; organic and sustainable locally woven cottons. Perfect for staying cool in the city and looking hot by the pool.
The colours of this collection were inspired by the Camargue and summer:
-a neutral palette of Whites, sun-kissed Marsh khaki and Black for after dark
-highlighted with a vibrant Rouge red and bright Fuchsia pink
-metallic accents of Silver and Gold
