Beija-Flor's Co-Founder and Design Director, Kathy Moça, shares some thoughts about Beija-Flor's newest collection for the 2015 holiday season.
What inspired you to create The Holiday Collection?
I think the inspiration for this collection probably comes from way back in my experience as a buyer, over 25 years ago. There always seemed to be a tradition for the holiday season to naturally blend into the spring season. Though it might be freezing in many parts of the country, many people still travel to warmer weather during the season. So along with the traditional black (our Audrey Animal Print) and red (our Kelly Chili Pepper) the customer needs pieces to wear in warmer climates.
Why did you focus on black and white for the holiday prints?
The black and white theme marks a change from the traditional fall colors to a crisp and bright, transitional palate for the winter months.
What sets these particular prints apart?
Besides having a wonderful stretch and fit, our Kelly Windowpane has a very unique double face quality that makes an adorable cuff. The Kelly Glen Plaid Black was a natural extension of our incredibly popular Glen Plaid Brown which literally flew off the shelves in early fall.
