Spice Route An exotic journey across the desert to market bazaars in remote locations. Rich rustic textures, desert inspired tones and a pinch of utility. Jungle Geo-polis High-tech graphics meet the concrete jungle to create geometric mini patterns and urban inspired camouflage.
While developing the collection, Head of Design Ailsa Roe travelled to Madagascar to collaborate with the artisans responsible for crafting key pieces, and while there was inspired by the bold colour combinations of the indigenous craftwork, the rich textures of the landscape, and the fusion of African and French culture.
“The SS14 collection encompasses elements of the unique island of Madagascar through its culture, diverse flora and fauna, and ethnic hand craft traditions from an inspiration, design and development perspective. It is always a privilege and constant source of inspiration to work together with the artisans; continually questioning, innovating, developing new ideas, and transforming traditional techniques into modern yet refined interpretations thus giving Kaminski XY is unique appeal and market positioning.”
