SS16 'PURA VIDA'
'Pura Vida' was inspired by a trip to Costa Rica; the name of the collection is their national saying, meaning pure life.
The collection opens with vibrant tropical colours, drawing on the sky high trees and cascading flowers seen on jungle treks. A specially designed print by Katy Smail sits on delicate silk organza and draped over easy summer pieces in natural straw. As night draws in the dramatic silhouettes and lilac tones of the twilight sky come into play, with black vinyl and silk palm leaves draping over dip dyed straw, and dark sparkling texture embellishing the occasion pieces.
