Runway Inspiration: Inga
For the highly anticipated Cruise 2014 Collection of resort ready-to-wear, designer Paula Hermanny drew her inspiration from Amazonia--the Amazon. Teeming with biodiversity and verve, the rainforests of Brazil come to life in the colors and prints of the new ViX collection.
Deep into the jungle, alongside the Amazon River, there grows a tropical tree called the Ingá. Strong and hardy, the Ingá produces long, recognizable seedpods—crackled and coarse. Hence, the textured stripes of the ViX Inga pattern mimic the toughness of the trees and the cool blue tones of river water.
