For the Spring 2015 collection, Pamella Roland takes us on a trip to Kyoto, Japan to enjoy the beauty and tranquil spirit of the Gardens of Kyoto. The collection of elegant dresses and neutral separates includes intricate fabrics such as basket weave silk Gazar, ombre silk tulle, floral printed fil-coupe and floral metallic organza. The works of modern Japanese artist Toko Shinoda inspired Roland, who draws from the painter’s abstract brush stroke technique to create a hand painted fil-coupe fabric. Elaborate beading adds texture to zen garden and cherry blossom designs. Prints are bold, with highlights including an over-sized beta fish print on silk organza. A nod to the Japanese inspiration, the collection also includes Japanese Origami folding techniques. These all crescendo in a zen synchronicity as Pamella has this uncanny ability to make her gowns come alive.
