Bright Tropical Green, Deep Jungle Green, Burnt Orange Ochre, Flamingo Red, Rich Camel and a soft Safari Khaki.
The deep, dark and mysterious creatures from the Congo jungle in the Central African Republic. I was drawn to the home of the silverback gorilla along with other exotic and exquisite creatures. These animals echoed through sleek, burnout wool-textured dresses, bold animal printed jacquard coats and liquid panther-like velvet evening looks. I wanted the collection to feel luxe and sophisticated, but still playful through the ease and fluidity of the silhouettes. Inspired by plant life and the jungle itself are graphic oversized palm printed taffetas and Bright Citrus embroideries. Petal appliques from the African tulip tree and heliconia plant are a vivid splash of color that brings a dark collection to life. I wanted this collection to feel elegant, powerful and bold, but still romantic for the Christian Siriano woman this season.
Deep Jungle Green or Tropical Green. Both colors are mixed together in many silhouettes and prints in the collection and they sum up what I think the customer would want to wear this season.
Must-have Item For
A bias-draped tropical printed dress.
What is your design philosophy when it comes to color classics and/or color chaos?
I think it’s important to experiment with color and take risks each season when using it in a collection.
