African Dream!


If you are highly interested in swimwear and frequently visiting exotic warm places, you need to check the Spanish designer Montse Bassons who recently showcased in Madrid at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.


The designer surprised me with her Summer 2014 Collection, titled “Elegant & Chic Africa” inspired by the African savannah, by majestic wild animals, by the golden sun of early evening and by the sensual appeal of an exotic woman in distant lands. The muse for this collection is a woman of indisputable ethnic beauty. Here we come across animal prints in a series of styles featuring elegant geometric cuts, false plain colors with laminated fabrics, “cinzato” finishes in natural shades, as well as silk and lycra creations that play around with silver and gold adornments. These unique materials create the strong sense of elegance, purity and strength that characterizes the muse for this collection, the “African Queen”. These designs pay homage to her elegance and courage, based on the subtle incorporation of an extravagant and glamorous appeal.


Exceptional styling accessories took the attention, with marvelous pieces such as metal armor and feathers, not to mention large headwear creations and spectacular necklaces, produced exclusively by the French label “Forever Glam”. The look was completed with the help of “Accessorize” complements and “Menbur” footwear. I would say very interesting and… extremely sexy!
