As lovers of the past, Zïah has revisited archives of a time that has left us decades ago and brought its faded colours and memories into our present. The resulting creations of this trip into time are mature garments that speak of an elegant past, but point to the future.
In our Past Modern Poetry collection, cuts seen on the beach strands during the 1950s are re-adapted into minimalist pieces that are painted in nostalgic pastels. Here, art is injected back into swimwear, though in a subtle manner. Hand-painted coloured lines become a digitalized and are printed onto the garments.One-pieces may be used as body suits and bikini tops as bandeaus and bralettes, bringing the refinement of past times into our present-day modernity.
