This season, BIASA’s Summer 2018 collection exudes all that is desired from the summer holidays; ever-young, tropical style inspired by ‘dolce far niente’, the art of basking in sheer indulgent relaxation.
The collection colour palette, mirroring the landscape of the African Sahara, sees warm and rich tones, from golden camel beige, earthy orange and hues of glittering sand to the rich blue of the Tuareg desert people.
The BIASA Women’s collection presents the continued use of natural fabrics; soft, light and delicate, with free flowing shapes for comfort and beauty.
New artisanal techniques including hand stitching, handmade pleats, fringe work and appliqué bring pieces in cotton and linen to life. Handmade block prints and tie and dye motifs add flavour to kaftans, sarongs and scarves.
Innovative circular cuts and asymmetrical shapes bring new playful proportions to dresses, kaftans and shirts while sheer evening wear in cotton and silk chiffon accompany hot and sensual summer nights.
The BIASA Men’s collection is created in the same spirit and philosophy as the Women’s. Simple shapes exude a sense of ‘get up and go’, with 50’s inspired short-sleeves and the return of the ever loved Hawaiian shirt.
Essential styles are marked with BIASA’s signature touch, hand stitched details hidden in plain sight, catching the gaze of the refined gentleman who appreciates understated elegance.
A capsule of shirts, kurtas and trousers can be found, made from traditional handwoven, naturally dyed fabric from India, Khadi, along with a series of men’s kaftans and unisex resort wear offering elegant comfort suited to tropical climates.
Each season, BIASA presents unique styles that transcend time and trends to create everlasting wardrobe pieces with elegance and sophistication. A unique combination of art, lifestyle and idealism for women and men seeking ‘extraordinary simplicity’.
