Fusing the dark side of Bolivia’s child labour with the country’s alluring beauty, AW16 is highlighted by oversized shades of black and navy. Rich fabrics like lace layered over satin portray the wealth of Bolivian culture while practical and technical fabrics like coated cotton and neoprene illustrate the work-wear worn by under age miners and shoe shine boys. Ruffles and cut-outs focus on femininity and the alluring beauty of the campesinas. Mixed with London’s minimal urban vibe the collection maintains a contemporary feel.
