Bitte Kai Rand never veers from the path of producing garments that help women express who they are. Their FW15/16 collection stays true to that commitment, pulling from several sources of inspiration to offer pieces that are undeniably stylish without trying too hard.
This season, Bitte Kai Rand’s lineup is as fresh as ever. Just look at the deceptively simple silhouettes, the zingy color choices, and the daring pattern combos, and you’ll immediately spot numerous references to expressionist and suprematist aesthetic ideas. Some of the other standout pieces in the line pay homage to nature, incorporating bird and flower imagery through various outlets. Despite the mash up of inspiration, the general vibe of the collection remains incredibly elegant, yet very relaxed.
Asymmetrical silhouettes, angular shapes, high circular necklines and triangular hemlines are reminiscent of Kazimir Malevich’s work. Add to that an array of wide leg pants, loose-fitting knits, shirt dresses and other examples of laid-back chic, and you have yourself a great selection of pieces that can go from casual to dressy in an instant (and help you stand out in the crowd as a fine art aficionado to boot)!
Expressionism is certainly at work here, and the exaggerated brush strokes and abstract imagery seen in certain patterns are a prime example. The use of colors is free and unabashed, mixing and matching orange, mustard, gray and purple with darker hues of blue, asphalt, plum and black. Floral and feather motifs tell their own story, while stripes and geometric prints add to an array of options you can use to show the world exactly who you are by donning Bitte Kai Rand.
The designer juxtaposes light and heavy fabrics to enhance the key themes, putting emphasis on quality. Cotton, linen, viscose, wool, and silk blends are both beautiful and practical, taking Bitte Kai Rand’s artistic flirtation to a whole new level.
