UTOPIA Spring / Summer 2009
"When summer meets the seventies. The long dress as the protagonist. The sexy mini as its counterpart.Tibetan mythology and ancient Greece meet couture. Expressions in patterns; ethnic, lavish and handcrafted. A rainbow of colours; vital, vivid and playful. From the golden Buddha to the deep, turquoise sea”.
The collection, Utopia- spring/summer 2009, is inspired by animals from the Tibetan mythology, wildlife and the ever popular seventies. This imaginative fusion creates an elegant, sophisticated yet playful line of pieces to drape the strong women of the world. The creations are the result of a trans-cultural collaboration between three artists; Leila Hafzi and the renowned tattoo artist, Mike The Athens.
In addition to a couture- and a prêt à porter line, this season, we introduce an all organic casual line. Apart from a few pieces in raw silk, the entire line is made from organically farmed cotton, hand loomed by women and dyed with herbs in a small village south of India. Which, while dying the cotton fabrics, infuse them with organic herbs and medical plant extracts.
