This week was something of a double debut for designers Patricia Hofstede and Kim Jansen: they held their first public showing of the label Bravoure's autumn 2011 collection, which itself was the design duo's Amsterdam fashion week debut.
Citing tribal African culture as a muse, its inspiration in their latest collection was obvious without being overt. Titling the collection bete de scene, a French term which literally translates to beast of the stage, feathered headdresses and sleeves accessorised Bravoure's offerings which balanced out any tribal influences courtesy of their black colour palette. As for the cuts, flowing dresses and capes, along with bodysuits and jumpsuits furthered the juxtaposition with their modernistic cut.
