Glamour (South Africa) - - Contents -

Hang­wani’s Ru­bi­con brand em­bod­ies ef­fort­less style, tai­lored crafts­man­ship and time­less de­sign.

This is a mood board for Ru­bi­con’s Spring/ Sum­mer 2017 col­lec­tion It’s a cel­e­bra­tion of an en­light­ened woman with a soul that en­com­passes a modern life­style. My muse is a woman who has a his­tory that is re­mark­able be­yond com­pre­hen­sion.

This is a sen­sual col­lec­tion that em­braces in­nate fem­i­nin­ity: char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally el­e­gant with a touch of bold.

My in­spi­ra­tion

My love for na­ture, and the beauty and free­dom of be­ing a woman were my big­gest in­spi­ra­tions.

The look and feel

The sil­hou­ettes are in­spired by the vin­tage styles of the ’50s era. The ref­er­ence for hair and makeup is a clas­sic vin­tage look that is glam­orous, yet un­der­stated. I pulled images from vin­tage hair and makeup ar­chives. The sig­na­ture sta­ple for Ru­bi­con is an art form – in this case, leaves be­cause na­ture is my first love.

I plan on us­ing green printed chif­fon fab­ric (some­thing that brings ver­dant land to mind), rep­tile print chif­fon, off-white chif­fon and off-white jac­quard. The colour pal­ette is fern green, off-white and black.
