We revisited Inabel for AVA's first summer collection of 2016, with the intent of introducing the native textile not just for home accessories, but for women's wardrobes as well.
You may expect native weaves in traditional Filipiniana attire. But in this case, we wanted to try a playful, fresh approach. The result - tradition with a summer twist!
We designed the collection with summer in mind. We took cool, comfortable silhouettes that flatter various women's figures and injected an Inabel twist to them. These tops are versatile and easy to style so you can go from weekend to workplace in a snap. We've created staple pieces that are uniquely Filipino.We designed the collection around the inabe fabric because we wanted to create modern products that are infused with our identity as a people, underscoring the belief that our heritage should not exist as an artefact within a museum but as a living fabric that follows the threads of our lives.
