June is an exciting month at KISUA as we launch KISUA Hariri. The new collection from KISUA’s design team, Hariri (meaning ‘edit’ in Swahili) offers a streamlined, modern approach to effortless dressing. The range of statement pieces is for the spirited, artistic woman who demands a wardrobe that allows her to express herself freely.
For the debut Fall 2014 collection, KISUA Hariri takes its inspiration from young Burundi-born artist Serge Alain Nitegeka whose immersive installations confront migration through an exploration of form and space. KISUA Hariri has translated this into a dialogue between art, fashion and architecture to create a range of subversive, joyful womenswear.
Fall 2014 plays with juxtapositions: masculine meets feminine; utility meets softness; urban meets organic and graphic prints meet blocks of color. Rounded silhouettes sit alongside sharp tailoring with oversized, angular shapes and controlled volumes lending a carefree, confident mood to the collection.
Statement pieces include cocoon coats, full skirts, fitted suits, boxy tops, tomboy jumpsuits and all-enveloping shift dresses. These are brought to life in a color palette of cobalt blue, burgundy and forest green offset by beige, cream, navy, black and white.
The KISUA Hariri Fall 2014 story begins to unfold today, 2nd June 2014.
