It's that time of year when Jade Alycia Inc. debuts it's spring /summer collection and this time around is no different. Like previous collections this one is inspired by Holy Scripture. The God's Promise collection celebrates the story of Noah's ark from the Bible, where after the entire earth was flooded, God sent out a sign in the form of a rainbow as a promise to never completely flood the earth again. Thus, the name God's Promise was chosen to represent the 2021 accessory line of women's sustainable handbags & fascinators which depict the promise in the unique form of fashion.
A CHAT WITH THE DESIGNER: The Concept Of Discovery
When most people think of a rainbow they think about the beauty of it. Sometimes we are even blessed enough to catch a double rainbow descending from the heavens after a rain storm. And in a way these rainbows restore our hope that in return give us joy.
Jade wanted to capture this moment of incredible awestruck wonder in the handmade SS21 collection. She says, "Sometimes the production process can be a bit of a tricky one because like any artist you tend to hit a "writer's block" if you will in designing. However, for me this collection came with such ease. So much so that I actually began curating sustainable materials to create this collection over a month prior to ever deciding on a launch date." - Jade Alycia
She goes on to say, "I didn't want to re-invent the rainbow, but rather capture it in the most glamorous, yet true way that reflected my style as much as possible. I can never turn down the opportunity to add some sparkle with crystals or fun sequins."
Followed by greater insight on the beginnings of the collection process Jade states that, "Keeping in mind as i'm designing that this is a spring/summer collection, I wanted to keep the colors bright and playful. Once I had this direction in mind I set to making the first piece of the line which was the Double Rainbow clutch (pictured to the far left above). This first piece laid the groundwork and inspiration for the rest of the collection."
Jade continued to peek our interest by sharing her favorite piece from the new collection, "I want to take a brief moment to shine some light on my handmade fascinators from this collection. I can't choose whether I like them more than the handbags, but honestly I don't have to because each piece is incredible special and one I would wear myself. Worn stand alone from the matching handbag they are absolutely beautiful couture pieces, however I can't seem to wear one without the other."
When asked what is the most playful piece from the collection she shared that, "The Two-Faced Rainbow fascinator (pictured above) I would say is one of the most playful pieces because you can actually flip the sequin to the opposite side revealing a silver metallic color. This particular fascinator gives you a lot of diversity with the mermaid-effect rainbow sequin." In total the collection consists of 5 rainbow fascinators and 4 interchangeable handbags, ideal for mixing and matching your favorite pieces for one fabulous look.
