Beach Bonita, designer Babita M’s latest resort wear collection, sets free the playful experience of soft sands, jovial waves and flirting sun into glamorously styled silhouettes. The Palazzo jumpsuits, drape dresses, dresses, kaftans in the collection give the feel of dancing waves, curling as they meet the shore. With the party destination of the world as inspiration, the entire collection is well dressed with exuberance and comforting flair. It’s a collection that invites one to let your hair down, flaunt the creative cuts and have a good time.
Inspiration: It was drawn in a holiday bout in the Spanish island of Ibiza, the exhilarating collection is a one big party of sinuous outfits/garbs, prudently cut to give enticing outlines.
Colours: After attending colorful and vibrant parties, the idea to transcribe the cheerful beach experience onto fabric inspired her. The charismatic sunsets along the beach were transfixed in her mind and the animated colors of the beach and the sky inspired her to use dynamic hues for this commercially-viable collection. It’s a sort of rebirth in chic and elegant shades such as taupe, grey and ivory for the sands, turquoise, whites and various shades of blues including ultramarine blue for the waters and a spray of corals to represent the frolicking sun.
Fabrics: For the spring/summer collection, the designer has used rich, soft and flowing fabrics such as lycra, silk georgette, crochet, and a good variety of chiffons. At a beach, you can never demarcate the sands from the ocean, sky and the earth, but, still they merge into a tender oneness that is perfect and spontaneous. The stylized dyeing techniques prettify each asset, streaming it into a cozy blend.
Silhouettes: A sort of fluidity in the collection has result in a luxurious fusion of easy-to-wear yet appealing silhouette range of unfussy and wearable tops, tunics and wide pajama pants. Babita has triumphantly recreated the beach affair and the spontaneous fluidity of the waves, lusty sands, sky and its breathtaking sunsets.
Glittering sequins, intricate crochet patchworks, dangling fringes, appliqués and cut works play the part of sea shells, gravel and pebble and the hidden coves along the Mediterranean beach side.
The beach, in all its spontaneous activity and vigor, is a metaphor for joyful living. Beach Bonita celebrates that invigorating feeling and the keeps the fashionable experience going.
