BEACH EXPLORER: TRAVEL NOTES
Beachwear 2014 tours the world of the globetrotter! On the way to rich distant lands with their landscape, culture and inspiring architecture: destination Latin America, the opulent Amazon to the intriguing austerity of Fire Island, before flying off to the East, in the direction of China, Indonesia and the countries of Levant … not forgetting to stop at Egypt, before returning home.
A necessary passage to complete colours is a trip to the paradise destinations – from the Caribbean to Hawaii, whilst going through the warm seas in search of lost paradises where heaven meets the sky and sea. This is also the theme of civilisation and folklore, with the encounter of big ethnic groups, the wild and remote tribes, the customs of the world and the distant ways of life. Here are symbols and tribal pictograms for dynamic prints but equally secular techniques originating in Indonesia (batik), Africa (tie & dye) and for astonishing effects Japan (origami) for original designs.
And at last a small detour to the urban jungle with inspiration from the architectural lines of huge buildings with patterns and colours derived from the urban culture.
“For 2014, colour is grasped by cashmere to personalize drawings by hand with vibrating strokes, and the African print paréos with elements of large motifs alternating between Mayan tattoos and almost washed out effects.” E. BOSELLI
