B.Koi's Spring collection Sushi Boat just went up on the site (after overcoming great technical difficulties) this week. It is a vibrant collection of semi-matte and duochrome shimmers ranging from white to reddish brown. Every color is highly pigmented and full of depth, yet "plays well with others". I wanted to talk a little bit about this collection because it is the first large collection I've put out and I'm extremely pleased with it.
From there I began to figure out whether or not I wanted the collection to take on a literal translation of the theme or if I wanted it to be a bit more figurative. Was I going to only stick to things you'd actually see on a real sushi boat or use the concept as a basis for branching out--a jumping off point so to speak. I decided that sticking only to sushi boat items would be a bit too limiting when I thought of the other things I'd like to include. I think I found a happy medium by using some items you'd certainly see on a sushi boat and adding other items you'd certainly relate to popular Japanese cuisine. I loved the idea of adding several dessert/sweet things such as bubble tea, mochi, and red bean (all personal favorites). Adding these other items also allowed me to incorporate some really amazing colors into the line as well.
Hopefully if I'm in love with them, you will be too.
