The new fabric collection, ‘Urban Beat’ by Vlisco, combines contemporary, city chic with a hint of ethnic charm. Just as the fashion world is paying homage to ethnic design & tribal prints, Vlisco has used its rich heritage to create an upbeat collection of graphic melodies. Strong graphic symbols from both tribal roots & urban origin are married in rhythmical sequence to create an eclectic range of unique fabrics. Globes, arrows & skylines, from an urban landscape, are just some of the references used in harmony with feathers, batik and artisan drawings of ethnic origin. The colours similarly range from steely, cold blues and vibrant pink to earthy tones of sand and ochre. The end result is up-tempo city chic with international allure.
