After recovering from a fantastic birthday month and as promised, I have a little surprise for you!
You all know me as Adva from Duende Fashion, the knitwear designer, but I am actually a textile designer specializing in knitwear fashion design, so I’m always up for some new adventures. This is exactly the reason why I was thrilled, when about a year ago (yes we design a collection a year in advance), one of my fabric suppliers introduced me to a new product, new, fantastic, soft cotton woven fabrics. They were so appealing, I immediately decided I want to work with it and combine them with my collection, no matter what.
It was a new exciting challenge, when I design my knitwear, I always try to design items that will not only be cool and contemporary and will have a flattering silhouettes, but will also be so comfortable, you will never want to take it off, and this was my mission with these new fabrics.
The first step was to create the patterns, we decided on 3 kinds of pants and one skirt, this will give you a perfect variety of bottoms to choose from: shorts, a Capri (3/4 pants), long pants and a fun skirt. Since I wanted to treat them like I treat my knits and keep my own style and inspiration, you’ll notice the items are all as clean and neat as possible, there are no zippers or noticeable seams, instead of the tight belt you would expect a pant to have, I enhanced the comfort level with a soft elasticated waistband which will also create a better fit, even in those days we are a little bloated…
Sizes range from XS-XL, all are available in 7 shades of summery colors: Navy Blue, Coral Pink, Vibrant Orange, Olive Green, Antiqued Lime Green, Vivid Teal and Slate Grey. The pants are super comfy and are sure to make an enjoyable addition to your daily summer wardrobe, but if you ask me, the hardest part would be to choose from this awesome assortment of colors and shapes. Good luck with that, we want them all!
