Collection – STORM COLLECTION

Inspired by a new god from the Olympus, Zeus the king of gods and the god of the sky and thunder. The collection celebrates the storm and captures the visual magic this creates between chaos and perfection. Nodding to the colour shades, structures and strength for which the environmental event is renowned. Sharp silhouettes, cinched bodices, voluminous shapes and the implementation of black and white evoke the drama generated by a storm.

The palette starts with black, dark blue and extends to lighter shades in blues, shimmering silvers and whites in light georgettes, silks, chiffons and organza. The renewed implementation of a traditional fabric like Denim gives a sense of rebirth and sophistication to the collection.

The Carolina Ronderos Spring/Summer 2016 collection is the epitome of women empowerment, elegance and allure.
