This Spring Summer 2012 Hoss Intropia is feeling romantic with inspiration taken from dance, floating landscapes and the Orient. Micro flower and bird prints in vivid colours of jade green and purple are contrasted against delicate pleated silks and net cottons in terracotta and need for dramatic effect. Accessories are key with long line necklaces, feathered headpieces and statement footwear complimenting the look.
An urban and dynamic collection with a feminine edge, the Silver collection combines voluminous 70’s shapes, Victoriana and print. Embroidery and Victorian lace embellished with mirrors and beads are laid over abstract liberty prints. Bambula silk, jersey, cotton pique and linen in a colour palette of green, white and pink lend the collection a fresh, light feel.
The 2012 Hoss Intropia accessories collection takes inspiration from the 1930’s with a strong emphasis on crystals and embroideries with an antique finish, floral motifs and sequin appliqué. From long necklaces with hand crochet touches, natural stones to feather in dusky tones, the result is sophisticated costume jewellery for both day and evening. In the leather department, the wallets and handbags have been designed with a retro cut, using Italian nappa in soft, sensual tones of taupe and pink. Narrow belts are key for SS12, made from leather, horsehide and patent leather.
The footwear collection compromises of super soft nappa pumps inspired by dainty ballet slippers, high heeled shoes with gathered vamps and straps, classic square-toed court shoes and wedges in linen, raffia and suede. Shoes within the Green collection have been designed with a leather green sole. In the Silver collection the colours are more intense more intense and richer.
