The second collection II/17 by Samuel Acebey was inspired by the Frida Kahlo painting‚ "Girl With Deathmask" (She Plays Alone).
Influenced by the painting and Frida Kahlo’s lifestyle, charged with a vivid optimism, the colour palette emerges: bright grey plays against radiant prints, in hues of sorbet orange, lilac and greenery, fused with white details. The strong use of vibrant colours with a soft base is a bold statement about escaping daily Tristesse.
Luxurious hand embroidery and embellishments besides an infinity of craft techniques, combined together to reflect the spirit of traditional sewing and complete a unique look.
The garments breathe a natural femininity and a careful sophistication, in natural premium fabrics like delicate pongé silks, soft virgin wools and rich cotton.
Elaborated silhouettes and drape elements garnished with feminine organic details create a bold modern dimension. Voluminous and chunky but airy pieces forming space and movement for a wild spirited woman.

 

#SWM I / 16 "Swim with Mermaids"
