Bellerose: Havana Feeling


The buzz of Havana’s many courtyards, the vibrant sounds of salsa beats and the excited cheers of kids playing baseball in the streets.
The unique palette of bright colours in a place full of spirit and life, where nostalgia is never far added to the determination to push forward while always remaining authentic…
Cuba offered all the inspiration needed for this vibrant new collection!
Its diversity, eclecticism and warmth are reflected in the opulence of that overload of different styles, graphics and fabrics…
Joyful all over prints are mixed with smart stripes, while frivolous dresses go hand in hand with army style overshirts and a wide range of sportswear influenced pieces.
There’s a definite touch of romanticism and naivety –without ever going overboard… a certain Caribbean nonchalance… exotic colours such as a fierce salsa orange, an abundant green and a bright lemonade yellow…
The girls’ collection offers a immense dose of playfulness and motion with plenty of flounces and pleats, embroidered details and copious ethnic prints… comfy, oversized and cropped fits dominate.
Embracing the same easy going, sun-kissed Cuban atmosphere, the boys’ collection offers the same attention to detail and comfort.
Classic fabrics are reworked with enormous creativity…
Summarized, this is an invitation to play, dance and travel mentally to this island where the hustle and bustle of city life is perfectly balanced by the calm of green pine forests and sandy beaches…
