Color of Mind
The Collection that you know and love by the name of Only 4 Stylish Girls, will be getting a new name from Spring Summer 2012, and that name is Loiza.
The new Loiza collection is all about colour, its number one defining feature. Colour as storyteller, as the central theme, but also as a habit breaker and new style maker. Vivid new colours like crystal blue, curry, paprika, and sea green blend and contrast with warm neutral shades like sand, pink, beige, and lavender in a whirlwind of colour, energy, euphoria and iridescence. The construction of each item is done with the same pep, the super light and breezy fabrics caressing and cushioning the angular cuts. The leitmotiv is the art of origami, featuring the same minimal linearity and attention to detail.
A stylized swan becomes an exquisite, lucky-charm accessory of ineffably understated style and appeal, a decorative detail on belts, necklaces and bracelets. In the leather part of the collection, which includes eco, nappa and suede, mix fabrics alternate and combine with Ramage leaf-flower prints. Leather is also used as a detail on dresses and tops, or added as a micro-sequin-like decoration.
Cotton is the dominant cloth used in the casual pieces, embellished with flourishes of glamour, like jewel brooches. Special occasion wear features micro-pique, matt satin and macramé, with superlight weaves and a mix of linen inserts for carefree summer wear. Clever contrasting returns in the juxtaposition of Tricot-knit sheath dresses and soft, sexy draping. Soft-fitting openwork jacket. The diamanté-embellished jersey comes alive with leaf/flower "ramage" prints, and picture postcards depict fluo landscapes on the t-shirts.
The denim is ultra light and free-flowing. Indigo wash with shadow-effect coating, distressed wash jeans that are both skinny and palazzo pants.
Leather twists through chains and buckles in the accessories: pochettes, maxi bags, shoppers, hobo bags and clutches. The evening collection has been extended and made even more exquisite, whilst maintaining the versatility needed to mix and match with the daywear range. Silk, creponne chiffon, embroidered washed satin, printed georgette, shiny jersey and ultralight MicroModal. Jewel detailing teamed with prints, colour all-over sequins and lace, add the final touches to a multi-faceted collection, just like the colours of your mind.
