For the Spring-Summer 2016 season the Basil Soda’s woman decided to take a quick trip in a tropical land where she brought along with her elements that she can use in her everyday urban environment.
The team of Basil Soda stuck to their founder’s roots with sharp lines in cuts and silhouettes. The use of stripes was new for the brand and gives a sense of the urban along with the Bird of Paradise as a representation of the tropics. This specific flower was chosen because it suggests precision and joy. Its geometric lines and exuberant colors create a vigorous structure with a soft edge. The colors were chosen based on these sources; from classic black and whites to shocking fuchsia and aqua green, with an addition of lavender and blush for a well balanced palette.
