Island Shop.



Island Shop's wanderlust reaches the shores of Brazil, embracing Beach culture, Hispanic influences and Mother Nature.

A natural palette dominates - WHITE, INK, WHEAT & EARTH are key colors, interspersed with JUNGLE, POPPY & PLUM, with SALSA, YOLK & LAGOON as highlights.

Key print - an all over botanical print. Produced in a relaxed tunic & flowy sundress for ladies and a long sleeve shirt for men, this print represents the essence of Spring's rainforest theme & neutral colour story. Fern motifs appear repeatedly within the collection in different interpretations - block prints, applique work, embroideries & sheer knit work. For men, there is a series of flora & fauna theme washed tees. Moving into Summer, the organic element is executed into stylized, colourful bloom prints for a celebratory "samba" feel. This bolder mood is also reflected in multi-colour stripes, postcard prints and eclectic patchwork.

Silhouettes - this is a season of simple shapes with utilitarian & organic details. Flowy sundresses, washed linen jackets & shorts, convertible tube dresses/skirts, sheer knit layering, jersey knit wraps and sexy halters for ladies. A new silhouette introduced is the baby doll tunic/dress to be wom over a pair of crop linen pants, or alone with tanned bare legs. Island Men basics are refreshed with new cuts such as relaxed & slim fits and longer back hems. New items are cotton/linen textured pullovers, pyjama stripe pants and patchwork bermudas.

In Details - beadings & embroideries are nature-inspired with wooden natural beads of all sizes, shells, flora/fauna embroidery & cutout motifs, hand braiding/twisting & laser cutwork. Men shirts feature contrast printed yokes & cuffs, colourful topstitching & etched wooden buttons.

The must-have caftan this season is a limited-edition fern print silk 'muu muu' with beaded embroidery available in 2 lengths in peony, copper & mangrove.

Accessories - repeating the flora/fauna theme, jewellery is infused with basket weave charms, wooden carvings, leather trims & shells. Carved wooden hair accessories along with laced up leather sandals complement the utilitarian, flowy silhouette of the season. Other key accessories are oversized canvas bags with solid leather trims & multi stripes, metallic totes with leather handles, organic-inspired soft tweed handheld bags & macrame belts.

In line with the Brazilian story is the Island Beach collection with an Ipanema party mood - body conscious knits, printed tees in electric colour scheme, bustier sundresses, bi-colour pareos, convertible swimsuits & metallic bikini sets.

Also, look out for Island Shop's new packaging and labels in lime, orange & brown with the updated Island Shop logo and its trademark "congkak".
