Cape Town - a city on the coast of two oceans, at the intersection of two cultures: European and African. The dominant colonial style borders on the original thirst for life, the sounds of the djembe, bright colors woven into large pearls in necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
The designer Lis Watkins from England, who grew up in East Africa, has preserved memories of life on another continent and transferred the color patterns and the spirit of freedom of the indigenous peoples to fabrics. Her designer collection is a response to the multi-local trend that breaks old rules and defies social conservatism.
The Cape Town collection - is the authenticity and wildness of Africa embodied in fabric, the burnt savannah and spicy cinnamon, curry and paprika tones. At the same time Cape Town is also European classic, an English rose wrapped in a strict corset, Victorian Bordeaux. Clear lines, as if repeating the rock paintings of Africa. Colonial style floral ornaments. The impossible, the unexpected, the insane - and thus an attractive combination.
