Blizzard Blouse Kikilala
Our crisscross back panel feature returns with a twist. The Blizzard Blouse is a pull-over style with tulle trims for a more daring adventure.
"Started mid-2019, we were sketching ideas for the new prints; thinking about how humans were finally panicked about climate change,” recalls By Moumi’s Director, Choltida Pekanan. As she and her designer cats followed the journey of Astro Christina (Koch), one of the astronauts NASA sent out to explore the “possibilities” of things. All in all, “It got us wondering if we are fighting fate or against something more supernatural.”
In keeping with By Moumi’s tradition, the elements of deception and messages are hidden within the tales told through "Moumi Tsunami", "Snowslide Myogi", and "Kikilalava". Images of the natural disasters are seemingly wondrous and serene, they are cut up into pieces and laced back together with linear designs, resembling psychedelic patterns from the 70s. It is yet refreshing and otherworldly in the given context. Coupled with the brand’s silhouettes – billowing tulle pieces are updated with more austere details: tailored suit features; accent scarves that double as shawls, belts, and turbans; pullover dresses that can transport the wearer to the beach and let her lounge gracefully during the lockdown.
