Rolling sandy hills, sprawling valleys, endless blue skies. The rugged home of native Navajo Indians acted as a rich source of inspiration to Issa this season. From the bold geometric designs of woven blankets to wide brushstrokes mimicking the flow of the Colorado River, Issa delivers prints as diverse as the landscape from which they originate.
This season we see the Issa woman experiment with fabrics and textures rich in tradition, yet re-worked to deliver a thoroughly modern finish. Woven, monochrome feather jacquards feel warm and comfortable enough to take her across the unforgiving desert planes, but fashioned into pleat front trousers, circle skirt dresses and fitted jackets they’re the epitome of understated chic. Our Fit & Flare jacquard dresses have been updated with a variety of contemporary prints from skeleton, monochrome designs to striking geometric, bright angles.
Silk, in all its timeless indulgence, is part of Issa’s culture and has been expertly tapered into slim-fit, printed shirts and neatly fitted or flowing, wide leg trousers to effortlessly take you from day to evening. Alternatively, the Issa woman can waft through the heat of the day in breezy silk chiffon kaftans printed with majestic eagle feathers; embroidered with plumes and beaded fringe echoing the headdresses of warrior tribes as they fan out sumptuously across the neckline.
As the light fades and evening sets in she slips into one of this season’s show-stopping, embroidered evening dresses. Ultra-glamorous shapes cut from heavy crepe de chine are adorned with cut mirror and crystals to ensure she glimmers alongside the camp fire. Gliding through the crowd in a long, languid dress cut to reveal an open back, seductively long sleeves or teasingly closed neck. These are dresses to guarantee you’ll have all eyes on you.
