LUSSA & LUMINOSA ~ Pink Gingham Bardot Top & Mini Skirt
Bratz Luxe Vibe ~ The Perfect Pink Gingham Bardot Top & Mini Skirt
The Lussa & Luminosa, Delta’s new pink gingham bardot top and mini skirt, was born of my lockdown daydreams & rejected desire for social ostentation; daydreams comprising of post siesta holiday evenings and tropical sandy sunsets, of Harajuku’s bright culture. Pink gingham, overlaid with peach organza, creates a totally sweet Fruit Salad effect ~ peach tones are Divine Nectarina’s core aesthetic. As I design sustainably, I have to always be aware of what fabric is readily available from my local/independent stores – pink gingham and organza is a contemporary staple, a true scandi dream, and just works wonderfully with Delta Of Phoenix’s design ethos. The Lussa & Luminosa co-ord, comprising of pink gingham bardot top and pink gingham mini skirt, are, in some ways, an evolution of the Nimbus Co-ord (from Cosmic Summer), yet injected with Nectarina femininity and a bratz luxe palette.
A Pink Gingham Bardot Top and Pink Gingham Mini Skirt With Minimal Fabric Waste
Back at the end of 2020 lockdown, I created my first six brand pledges, where sustainability was an elemental focus. The Lussa & Luminosa, pink gingham bardot top and pink gingham mini skirt co-ord set, was designed with these pledges in mind, and now creates minimal fabric waste! This is super exciting for me as a brand creative & designer, as it proves that sustainable design is a possibility. All the pattern pieces of this bardot top and mini skirt co-ord are rectangular bar two, and all measured/proportioned in order to tessellate on a width of gingham and organza, therefore leaving minimal waste and truly being part of a sustainable autumn womxnswear collection.
Divine Nectarina – A Sustainable Autumn Womxnswear Collection
Emanating true Italiana madre glamour & sweet Harajuku peach tones, the new Divine Nectarina collection is another expression of unapologetic femininity, for me anyways. Being able to create a sustainable autumn womxnswear collection with minimal fabric waste is oh so wonderful, a Delta dream come true. The Divine Co-ord, comprising of Lussa pink gingham bardot top and Luminosa pink gingham mini skirt, is a sustainable co-ord set yet still radiates the Call Me By Your Name aesthetic that I’ve been dreaming of. All Divine Nectarina garments are handmade by me in my home studio, and will always be made to order ~ further upholding Delta’s sustainability pledge, ensuring no remaining garments at the end of season.
