Bitte Kai Rand’s high-quality garments are known for their ability to enhance a woman’s body and send a clear message about empowerment, giving off a sense of understated sexiness with an edge. Their latest collection is inspired by the tropics, with the main theme reinterpreted in unpredictable ways, which results in a timeless lineup of memorable clothing.
In this SS16 collection, jungle fever artfully rears its head time and again. It’s mixed with typographic patterns and prints, a splash of Japanese motifs, a vintage vibe, which comes through certain colors and cuts, and an emphasis on athleisure. All in all, the lineup caters to those who are on the lookout for a perfect combo of comfort and style to flaunt amidst the urban jungle.
This season, the silhouettes range from structured to playful. Belted coats and high-waisted pants give off a retro feel. A-line skirts and ankle-length rompers are all nonchalance at its best. Loose-fitted shorts and culottes add a sporty vibe, while button-neck shirts and billowy dresses pay homage to the Orient, rounding up this eclectic, yet perfectly balanced mix of pieces that can take you from the office to an art gallery opening and then a weekend gateway with no fuss.
In this, as in every Bitte Kai Rand collection, color acts as a highlight without being overwhelming. For SS16, blueberry, honey, burnt orange, and mustard are mixed with black, gray and beige, taking signature jungle-themed prints of the season from “primitive” to “civilized”. Expect to see wild Afro and tribal-looking references tamed by unusual reinterpretations – we’re talking about a tiger pattern created using old brand books, animal spots that turn out to be letters, and remixed emoji patterns.
Crepe, cotton, linen, viscose satin, neoprene, heavy jersey, and even “summer fur” all feature prominently in this collection, offering plenty of options for layering.
