Designer Katty Xiomara introduces her Winter 2014/15 collection at Nolcha, during the prestigious Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.
Born into a Portuguese family in Venezuela, Katty Xiomara pursued her fashion studies in Portugal and capitulated into the fashion industry in 2000, when she established her own clothing line ‘Katty Xiomara’. Regularly presented at both Paris and Lisbon Fashion Week, Katty Xiomara garnered immense international attention as her creations assume on elegant, voluptuous, lascivious, poetical, idyllic and romantic character of the modern woman.
The collection theme “Infographic” is an interpretation of graphic information used in our urban environment.More and more information is transmitted with the aid of colors and geometric patterns and that lead us to a perception of information more pleasant and quickly.
Transferred for the clothing, revealing a collection of simple and purified contours with strategic use of color.
The proportions are geometric but the garments send us always in the direction of its spontaneity. There is some asymmetry and linear cutouts. The component follow this same route in a contrast of lines and geometric figures. The basic colors are focused on mock white, on black, in midnight blue and caramel, strongly contrasted by a burnt yellow and a crimson red, which offer some surprise in the design of the collection. The result is elegant and urban, graphic and feminine.
This year the brand has a new challenge, with a new collection called Peanuts Played by Katty Xiomara where she plays with the Peanuts characters - Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the gang. Katty did this duet in a unique way and the result is quite interesting. She has kept the nostalgia feeling while building up a kind subtle vintage look. The character expression are used by graphics details and free hand drawings but avoiding the obvious used of the character figures. It's impossible to deny the nostalgia and the emotional sway that the toys of our youth still have over us. Seeing or holding a particular toy can immediately transport you to the past.
