Viridis Luxe, by designer Hala Bahmet, presented new Spring 2009 collection at Mercedes Benz Los Angeles Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios on October 14th.
Viridis Luxe is committed to making beautiful, luxurious clothing using ethical, eco-friendly methods and materials. This line is all the way functional, feminine, and eco conscious.
Despite the fact that often functional and eco consious do not equate to feminine and beautiful, Viridis Luxe was able to combine those. The materials used were hemp cashmere blends, hemp silk blends, and bamboo.
Organic cotton tees and tanks and cashmere shrugs and draped tops comprised the laid back, casual feel to the collection. Each look evoked a completely effortless but put together feel, perfect for summer afternoons.
Hala Bahmet’s line looks casual, but with touches of trends that almost make you forget how much hemp is involved. A lot of denim is used but being combined with a tie-neck blouse or something other which is on-trend the model looks adorable, comfy, sexy, and edgy at the same time.
The spring palette we’re seeing at every Los Angeles Spring 09 show – melons, yellows, greens – is seen again in this collection in mostly solid pieces, some fun hibiscus-prints and a little basic black which will all become next spring’s wardrobe staples.
The outfits were accessorized with thick chain linked necklaces, newsboy caps and umbrellas. Those hardware accessories gave Hala Bahmet’s collection some street credibility.
The line seems to be new and very special due to the combination of trendy items with casual ones. It is an ideal chice for those who dislike wearing classic but want to look elegant.
