This week during New York Fashion Week, PatBO, a Brazilian luxury brand, introduced their Spring 2021 Collection. Entitled “Acqua” the collection dives deep into the depths of the brand’s essence founded on intricate hand-embroidery and bold prints.
Throughout the collection you will see that it was inspired by the movement of water and features a retro seashell print hand-drawn in the brand’s Brazilian Atelier.
The color palette consists of pastel tones of pink and green alongside the brand’s signature bold prints.
Hand-embroidered fringe and netted details allude to the movement of water combined with delicate lace and silk fabrics that create an air of fluidity.
The best-selling beach dress (part swim-friendly lycra, part cotton mesh) returns this season with many fresh updates.
A mainstay of every PatBO collection is the prominence of beading and embroidery. Bonaldi, who founded a school in her hometown empowers local artisans with the skills to preserve this level of detailed craftsmanship.
