ASV Spring/Summer’17 collection
‘Margaux Louise Hemingway’
The memorable life pursuing journey of Margaux Hemingway, the grand daughter of one of the greatest American novelists from the 50s Ernest Hemingway, has been chosen to explicate through Asv Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Margaux portrays as an icon for all women who prefer to indulge within the American lifestyles. Her distinctive journey takes us on a time machine back to places infused with the hidden charm of cultural diversity— and for this time, Cuba is the destination.
As a New Yorker, an unrivaled idealistic character she possesses has been transformed into the heart and soul of this Asv collection which depicts uneasily swayed thoughts and outlooks of Asv’s ideal women who embark on a vibrant journey with the desires for confidence as well as courage to unleash themselves in new adventures. They approach the roots of elements around them and they are always up for new discovery and untold stories.
The journey of Margaux Hemingway is narrated through the Sailor suit for this Spring/Summer 2017 collection. As she traveled to the Southern Islands in Havana, Cuba, the home of her grandfather, the Sailor uniform has been redesigned to perfectly fit women with passion of traveling. Havana collar sprinkles the smell of an inspiriting summer sea breeze with the silhouette of Shawl collar. Cropped jacket together with short pants recreate the look for an explorer wanders in exciting journeys. A one-shoulder and off-shoulder top pair with Culottes, Ruffle dress, or Overalls draw an alluring picture of ASV women — enchanting wanderers with class and touchable style whose breath is continued by evocative adventures.
Fabrics & Colors
