JOLIE SU 'Gypsy Puzzle Collection' is inspired by Gypsy architecture, culture and lifestyle. Puzzle of culture, style, colors, shapes, memories and dreams. “Palaces” from little girl's dream. Wanderer's lifestyle full of freedom and carelessness. Glittering, colorful, reach and poor. Although everything is mixed, it still makes sense.
The construction in the collection is based on multifunctionality: one piece can be stripped into few and separate elements can be mixed creating something new.
Colors gold and silver symbolize the richness; baby blue and baby pink symbolize the youth and dreams; black and dark/navy blue symbolize the authority and seriousness. Sparkling fabrics stands of the desire for richness and splendor.
Exclusive fabrics like silk are used as shantung which makes elegant look more casual, glittering polyester and digital printed canvas bring abstract futuristic touch, mixed with white daisy flower lace and dull cotton recall childish memories. Transparent silk beige organza and animal printed velvet evoke the primordially. Black organza with woolen and satin tape represents the hermeticity.
