Va$shtie’s Violette is back. This 20 piece collection consists of t-shirts and mid-drifts telling of the designer/artist/director/party promoter and everything else cool under the sun’s heritage. This is what she had to say on the latest:
“RUDE BOY YUTE” is the latest collection for FW2011 was inspired by my Trinidadian heritage. After a couple of recent trips there, I was compelled to create pieces that represented the culture in a subdued and fashionable manner.
I used common iconography in West Indian households and added a touch of pop to them – a can of Ackees, a bag of Curry, a Carib bottle cap, etc. My caribbean people are known for their color and vibrancy, but I decided to focus on making the line as monochromatic as possible like some of the flag shirts. It was a way to make the pieces accessible to anyone, despite your country of origin.

I hope you like it!
