(( Written By: Nani Hapa )) Here's a sneak peak at Choolips' Spring/Summer 2013 collection titled ‘‘Diamond Petals’’ which is part of the label's ‘‘Gold Coast’’ series that is produced in Ghana. According to Choolips, ‘‘Diamond Petals is inspired by the rich traditions of the Surma tribe from Omo Valley, Ethiopia. Known for their exquisitely beautiful vegetal headdresses made from exotic flowers and the use of their bold geometric body paintings their timeless creations have us slightly obsessed beyond the season.’’ Indeed the collection juxtaposes sporty-chic silhouettes, watercolor petals, bright diamonds and delicate animal prints with fresh spring colors such as white, mint, pink, and bright yellow. See some of our favorite pieces from the collection below, and for more, visit www.choolips.com where you can pre-order items from the collection.
