When we think of summer we envision blue waves, nature and a great suntan. I can’ wait to now share this summer’s inspiration from Peach and our head Designer….Here it is:
We are headed to Zanzibar, a beautiful island located off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean. The island is known for its beautiful beaches with pristine white sands, clear waters in the most beautiful shades of aqua and an ecosystem full of diverse species, some of which can only be found on the island.
I wanted this collection to have a sense of adventure and feel fresh at the same time! As you can see from my inspiration boards, I couldn’t resist choosing a shade of blue that transported me to those beautiful blue waters, and the yellow I chose reminded me of hot summer days full of sunshine.
As I was doing my research on Zanzibar, I learned that in addition to tourism, spices and raffia are their main industries, and locals often refer to the island as ”Spice Island”, so the neutrals I chose were based on the color of raffia and a few spices! These colors add not only authenticity to the color palette, but also longevity, as these are colors that you can wear well into future seasons.
Our three seasonal prints were inspired by nature, so we have one print inspired by a sea snake, a second by the Hibiscus flower which we did in 2 versatile colorways, and a third print in 2 colorways as well, that was inspired by the Radiated Tortoise (yes, a tortoise!) which has a gorgeous geometric like pattern on its shell.
This collection should feel like a Summer vacation- and I know we’re all ready and looking forward to one!
