Caravana @ RAINBOWWAVE

 

Re-interpreting and giving the ancient, alchemical artisanal know-how of Mexico a new lease of life: with this dream in mind, the duo Francesca Bonato and Jacopo Janniello Ravagnan, based in Italy, have founded the brand Caravana. It is focused on a personal vision and a combination of style, cosmopolitanism and authenticity.

Carrie Forbes@ RAINBOWWAVE

 

Carrie Forbes, a talented designer with an extraordinary background in the fashion industry, developed a keen interest in the artisanal traditions of Morocco and in 2014, she launched a raffia shoe collection manufactured by local workers. Each pair of shoes requires and entire day to make.

Ibeliv Ecofashion

 

Eco-friendly brand of bags and accessories in raffia and natural fibres that are handmade in Madagascar and hand-trimmed in leather: Ibeliv only uses natural fibres and prime quality leathers. The new collection includes a selection of new materials and styles designed for travelling.

Isole & Vulcani

 

Geothermal energy, reptiles, obsidian, volcanic rock, and sandy black beaches: strong sources of inspiration for Daniela Fadda for her beachwear collection that conjures up the wild island of Filicudi. Pure cotton, often in single colours, featuring raw edges and no seams.

Lar

 

The project by designer Laris Kilimci seeks to transform ornamental abstractions into useful objects. Her first collection of scarves, stoles, and bandanas is called Solemn Play and was inspired by the works of David Hockney.

This is an exclusive proposal of resortwear handmade by local workers, that evokes exotic landscapes and presents unique embroideries.

Scaglione

 

Scaglione will be flaunting a primordial femininity in SS18.  African inspiration brings natural colours to the collection: ivory, rope, turmeric and pepper come alight with intense shades of lapis lazuli and jasper. Natural materials like linen and cotton interpret ethnic textures like Shibori and two-colour 3D ribs.

Talitha

 

boho-chic collection designed for modern jet-setters looking for a luxury travel wardrobe that is made up of unique, versatile and trendy pieces.  The brash, refined beauty of icons such as Marisa Berenson and Kate Moss is the basis of the inspiration behind the two founders, the stylist and fashion editor Kim Hersov and the embroidery expert Shon Randhawa who follows the production of the garments in New Delhi.

Sundress

 

This collection has been designed for women with a gypsy soul, free spirits with an adventurous heart. Kaftans, blouses as well as short and long mini dresses with an effortless chic, ultra-feminine style. Bright nuances with fluo accents liven up garments enriched with embroidery, bead inserts and multi-coloured fringes.

Temptation Positano

 

Created in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, the brand draws inspiration from these unique locations. All the garments are produced in Positano, rigorously hand-sewn by local workers. Broderie anglaise, macramé, linen and silk, give life to collections that, thanks to their unique finishes, are appreciated all over the world.
