Basil Soda – Ready To Wear – Spring/Summer 2014
September 30th, 2013
The BASIL SODA woman is exploring new grounds this season, in search of a lighter attitude and a sense of freshness.
Explosions of color, sleek tailoring and exuberant shapes compliment a youthful state of mind for an effortless look. Modern geometric cuts are inspired by different techniques of folding and pleating. Splashes of stone and metal embroideries add streaks of lively colors. The various range of unexpected fabrics create an interesting palette to play with such as; perforated cottons, abstract floral prints, unconventional laces, along with silk satins and crepe georgettes adding a touch of romanticism embellishment that compliments metal rose accessories hugging the body.
BASIL SODA Spring/Summer 2014 provides every aspect of a modern day woman’s life, from day-wear to signature evening-wear.
If you just happen to be in Paris between the 28th of Sept and 2nd of Oct 2013, you can view the full collection at Hôtel SAINT JAMES / PARIS.
Femininity Takes a Bold Stance with Basil Soda at Paris Fashion Week
October 2nd, 2012
A brand I have been watching closely for a while is the strikingly beautiful, Lebanese designer, Basil Soda. Strange name yes, but slender, ultra-feminine silhouettes with patterns, graphics and textures of the Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013 collection are calling women to order!
Whether short or long, geometry stands out with open skirts, fluidity is conveyed through soft, supple materials, and the body is revealed in cuts that emphasise the shoulders, the carriage of the head and endlessly long legs.
The collection spotlights an obvious intention to work the garment on a body that is now modelled and sculpted, constantly expressing volume and movement. Dresses glide, sensual and conquering; flounces make a startling appearance; colours create a dazzling look with reflecting silver, sky blue and deep black… Dresses are dotted with prints and embroideries that structure their form and delineate the central axis of balance. With cut-outs, transparencies and a mix of lengths, feminine daring equals elegance and no mistake!
I’m in love with every one of these pieces from Paris Fashion Week. The models are divine, with a healthy figure and perfectly poised. The collection is completely wearable and totally outstanding. I want to see more of Basil Soda, and I want to see it come to Australia so that our very own beautiful women can indulge their bodies in this fine couture.
