What We Thought:
Pamella Roland Spring/Summer 2015 kicked off with a few taps of a gong, instantly putting us in a tranquil state of mind for the collection inspired by The Gardens of Kyoto, Japan. The pinks of the collection are oh-so-delightful — delicate (and certainly reminiscent of cherry blossoms), but not muted. Cherry blossom imagery makes its subtle appearance throughout the presentation, included in the patterns of several floor length dresses and even embroidered in a delightful raspberry shade on a strapless, two-toned blue number. Other elements of Japanese culture, like the iconic kimono, are referred to indirectly with several of the Spring/Summer 2015 pieces through their more defined structure and silhouettes.
All in all, Spring/Summer 2015 for Pamella Roland sways toward the cooler side of the color palette and speaks volumes about the designer’s discipline and direction in taking inspiration from a place like Japan that continues to be iconic in reinventing fashion and reinforcing the power of clean lines.
