FALL WINTER 2018/19TINTES
Fascinated by the elements she discovers in her travels the designer rescues small eye-catching details and transforms them into the base concepts that bring her collections to life. For the Fall/Winter 2018 collection, the inspiration is the natural dyes used by traditional Colombian cultures in the process of making their special handcrafts, and also the shapes of the crafts per se. Two of these traditional procedures stood out and captured her attention: the wool process in Boyacá, and the ‘Werregue’ baskets made in the Wounaan community in Chocó. The organic materials used by the indigenous people in these cultures as dyes, combined with the geometric shapes of their weave, provide the shapes and texures on which the collection is mainly inspired.
