AZTECA RANGE AND INSPIRATION

Image

 

As print/graphic designers, geometrics have always been ‘our thing’-particularly with a tribal, ethnic edge to them. After our honeymoon travelling around Mexico this summer, we both fell in love with the gorgeous textiles, weaving and handicrafts of Oaxaca; as our stuffed flat of global treasures prove! The use of colour, pattern and technique was truly inspiring and overwhelming when it came to designing the range, and in particular ‘Azteca’. Another constant source of geometric print inspiration is Mara Hoffman; her S/S 14 RTW Catwalk show, (as always) was a gorgeous, dramatic explosion of tribal prints (http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/S2014RTW-MHOFFMAN), as was Valentino’s exquisitely beaded maxi-gowns in horizontal aztec patterns, in his S/S 14 RTW show (http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/S2014RTW-VALENTIN).
