Malini Agarwal, Celebrated designer of accessory brand Malaga is set to unveil her Summer/Spring collection called ‘Kwazulu’ this Lakme Fashion Week on 6th March, 2012. Vogue+ Correspondents Himanshu Pandey & Madhura Sansare tells you more…
Originally an independent Zulu kingdom, the KwaZulu-Natalprovince of South Africa invokes the primal power of Zulu traditions, the colour and exoticism of its sub-tropical forest landscape and the modern avatar of this region’s coast as a string of incomparable beach resorts.
“The Kwazulu collection by Malaga uses all the facets of the ‘land of the Zulus’ to make a tribal inspired, colourful collection of bags ideal for the high summer season. The geometric embroidery patches are inspired by the beadwork that is worn by Zulu women in their belts, dresses and head gear. These influences add that extra flair, and with the colours used, make each bag a statement of individual style,” says
Malini who has always used her travels as inspiration for her unique accessory lines.
The unique colours and textures used in the embroideries are given an ideal platform in the powerful colours that epitomize the vibrancy of the tropics. The silhouettes are designed for the sophisticated traveller, one who requires their style to reflect the comfort and luxury of their favourite resort get away. Using this high impact combination, Kwazulu conveys colour, power and elegance in a combination designed to attract even the most discerning eye.
