The "URBAN OASIS" collection is inspired by sun faded colors baked in the desert heat, hot streets of New York City and the folded details of traditional Bedouin apparel.
Loris focuses on texture and a mixture of fabrics - flowing silk cotton voiles with hammered cotton, tissue light wool crepes combined with wispy crinkle chiffons, and cashmere/silk seersuckers sculpted in washed tones such as Blush, Salmon, Periwinkle, Ink, Mauve, Terracotta, Ivory, and Sand.
Fabrics are draped and folded to create sharp lines at certain points and deconstruction at others.
The Spring/Summer 2011 season marks Loris' first-time collaboration with Korean shoe designer Jinny Kim, to create the Jinny Kim for LORIS DIRAN shoe collection.
