Though based in Brazil, Cenci, the lead designer for Ipanema, taps into global themes from the jewelry and accessories markets.
“Part of my job is to put the inspirations found all over the world together so that the collection tells a cohesive story,” she said. “At the same time, it is the tremendous variety of styles, colors and prints that make us different.”
Here, Cenci shares what inspires her with FN.
“Tribal inspirations have become and ever-present trend. For 2017, this theme features geometric and jewelry-inspired elements”
“The empowerment of women [is emphasized] through light materials and design elements with a classically romantic feel. The heart is an Ipanema icon that especially reflects this theme.”
“The femininity and delicacy of floral details are shown this season through sophisticated flower embellishments and boldly colorful tropical prints.”
“Minimalism is a strong fashion trend focused on simplicity, comfort and well-being. The lines are clean and pure, giving products a ‘less is more’ feeling.”
“The world of glamour brings liveliness to the Ipanema collection. The main elements of this trend are inspired by heirloom jewelry to create timeless designs.”
