Rapee A / W '15 Mood Boards

By Jessica Garcia on January 21, 2015

Introducing the inspiration behind our Autumn/ Winter '15 Collection. Consisting of three stories - FantasiaGypsy Heritage and Panache. Dropping into stores early Febuaray 2015.

Inspired by a world of whimsical fantasy, the FANTASIA story has an airy feminine, eclectic feel. The muted palette of soft pinks, glacial blues and iced lemons coordinate and contrast with wintery blacks, white and neutrals. This story embodies a contrast of bold geometrics, abstract animal tapestries and woven plaids paired back with decadent faux furs; metallic foil printed velvets and digitally printed pastel florals.

Influenced by the modern gypsy, GYPSY HERITAGE is inspired by the earth with a blend of designs and constructions that have a modern rustic tribal feel. This striking palette of vibrant reds, inks and yellows coordinate with softer neutral greys and chambray blues for a relaxed decor. This story celebrates a blend of ethnic constructions, heavy textures in chenille jacquards, kilims and woolly crewel embroideries.

Enthused by the French boulevards and the waters of the Seine in Paris, the PANACHE story has an elegant urban chic feel. Deep watery blue pantones Ink, turquoise and dusk are highlighted with a bright flame red and a flicker of metallic coppers. Woven jacquard, printed geometrics cotton twill, heavy crewel embroideries are set back with quilted and textured plain cores for a sophisticated vibrant story.
