‘I was mesmerised by GATTOBRAVO’s organic, linear illustration style and the way she applied colour in the most perfect manner,’ says Deanna. ‘I was instantly obsessed.’
The result is fun and colorful, wearable clothes with a Parisian flair.
‘The prints are youthful, romantic, with a touch of Parisian chic,’ says Deanna. ‘I chose to go with ‘functional’ fabrics - cotton drills, slubby linen knits and drapey viscose crepe de chine - for the girl on the go. The palette is strong and fresh - deep green and tan animal print, bright blood-orangey reds, fresh whites and a bit of sparkle. Once our colours and prints were underway, I worked on developing new silhouettes, but combining these with our signature RUBY shapes.’
