"Fortune" is Tina Kalivas' latest SS09/10 collection. To put it simply: It's as if Xena joined a circus of travelling gypsies who taught her the in's and out's of astrology and Greek mythology. Through injections of armour-like jewelry and feminine hints of military prowess, Kalivas embraces colour with an ethereal, celestial colour palette. The original spin Kalivas has put on digital print and new age patterns is refreshing when we've been seeing so much of it in the past seasons. Her penchant for highly structured yet breezy, feminine looks is accoladed with knotting, roping, tassels, fringing and a few carefully placed slashes. The stand out emerald green panelled jacket is a gentle reminder of her stint at Alexander McQueen where she was seamstres and Creative Pattern Cutter of showpieces and private orders. She gained skills of the highest calibre such as draping, tailoring, and endless couture techniques; all evident in this collection which is sure to pave way to the future.
