RESORT 13-14 COLLECTION
“INCA captures a Mayan adventure through a textiled journey of abstract lines, fine-spun embroideries and flashing hues. A sleek array of blue, neon and pink silhouettes hang beside provincial crochet dresses and pullovers.
Fringe work takes flight in metallic thread and woven gems surface throughout.Iridescent beads reel in and out of master-cut shirts while hand-artistry comes to life in a sequence of skirts, dresses and statement vest’s.
Designer, Krystel Davis was stirred by travels through the Andes mountain range,“This idealized landscape of shimmering pools and snow-capped harmony was the foreground to illustrations for Summer 2013.Interpreting the land’s composition in detail at all scales, from intricate thread work to the all-encompassingportrayal of the highlands in bold hardware on jackets.”
The INCA collection is a legacy of polished contrasts, rich applique and a scenic design aesthetic. This pre-Columbian inspired range sets off IXIAH Summer 2013, arriving in selected stores this November.” IXIAH press release
Some of you may remember my excitement when I had attended Sydney Fashion Weekend earlier this year (you can check it out here).The runway show was where I had laid eyes on IXIAH, the amazing designs of Krystel Davis for the first time.
The unique designs had left such a lasting impression on me that I had been converted to a lover of the label ever since.
Now they have released a new collection, which I am so excited about. Incorporating bright colours (my favourite), vibrant prints, crochet, unique fringe work and metallic pieces.
The new collection Resort 13-14, is perfect for every occasion this summer, with your choice of summer dresses to evening wear. I especially love their selection of gorgeous maxi dresses.

The materials used in this collection is so amazing, sometimes the quality of fabric used does not translate through photos.

Some of my favourites from the collection are the metallic pieces, I love the cut outs with mesh like fabric and the V-line top with metallic shoulders.
Thanks for visiting 🙂
I’ll catch you soon with a new outfit post so stay tuned.
