FIG just unveiled its new SAFARI collection, a great collection to transition from summer to fall. What’s in store this season? Isabella, main designer at FIG, answers 3 questions about the collection.


1. How would you define the Fall 17 SAFARI collection ?
Isabella : Magnificent ! Haha. The SAFARI collection launches in July, so it was important for us to create styles that can be worn over summer clothes: cardigans, ponchos, loose fitting tops... items that are perfect for cooler evenings! And because boxy is in right now, you'll notice several easy fit styles, that are super comfortable! Perfect for the adventurous soul! Finally, I would describe the Fall 2017 collection as more complex, especially with the arrival of a textured French Terry fabric.

2. What can you tell us about the new SAFARI fabric?

Isabella : We will continue to offer our classic SAFARI fabric (composed of bamboo viscose and organic cotton), but are introducing a new French Terry knit, which has a slight heather effect. Silky to the touch, FIG’s new French Terry is perfect for restless travellers! It is easy to care for and offers optimal wrinkle-resistance. You will love the casual items offered in this fabric, and of course, its flowy design lines, which are typical of SAFARI.

3. What were your inspirations for the collection ?

Isabella : Each collection is inspired by a destination. This season, we chose Japan for the SAFARI collection! When it comes to travel, Japan is the perfect mix of adventure and serenity. We chose a mix of rich, lively colours (Camellia red, Blossom purple) and neutrals - like Oolong gray and Wisdom, to reflect these two opposites. Japan's influence can also be felt in our designs! Stand-up collars, draped necklines, asymmetrical cut-outs, this collection is all about details! Japanese culture is refined, elegant, and SAFARI truly reflects that delicateness.
