SEQUINS, silk, leather and crochet filled the racks at Marilyn's last week for a special showing of the spring-summer and pre-fall 2012 collections from international brand Hoss Intropia, from Spain.
Store staff and friends rocked the look during a trunk show at the Caulfeild Village boutique that stretched from afternoon into evening with clients enjoying a sneak peak at samples flown in especially for the day. Sangria and tapas were served while shoppers placed orders for next season's key pieces not set to arrive in store until August and September. For spring-summer, Hoss Intropia has a romantic feel, taking its inspiration from dance, floating landscapes and the Orient, according to a release. Micro-flower and bird prints in vivid colours of jade green and purple are contrasted against delicate pleated silks and net cottons in terracotta and nude for dramatic effect. Accessories inspired by the 1930s include long necklaces with hand crochet touches, narrow belts and soft nappa pumps inspired by dainty ballet slippers.
