MISCHA Travel Series Reveals Metallics for F/W2012 Collection
Following the launch of MISCHA’s signature print in 2010, the MISCHA Travel Series is set to launch its fifth collection, with metallic colours and the addition of two new styles for FW2012. After the recent success at the ‘Blueprint x The Brandary’ trade Show, the MISCHA Travel Series has now expanded to three stores in Singapore.
MISCHA’s own signature print, created using interlocking hexagons – a stylized representation of the tortoise shell and symbolizing longevity, has devoted followers taking their pieces of the collection to destinations around the world. The Travel Series is growing each season with new additions to FW2012 including the Mini Overnighter and Box Bag. The Jet Set Tote, Overnighter, Bucket Tote, Travel Clutch, iPad 2 Case, Travel Wallet and Cardholderremain a staple of the line. The MISCHA Travel Series is silk-screen printed on 100% cotton canvas, finished with a waterproof coating and trimmed in genuine leather.
Perfect for women on the go, the MISCHA signature print is black with the MISCHA logo discreetly placed throughout, imitating the natural fibres of vintage embroidery. The new colours for FW2012 are Antique Gold, Silver and Mykonos Blue. Favourite carry- over colours include the popular Dove Grey, Khaki and Burgundy. Contrasting leather straps and trims give the finishing touch.The Box Bag is a modern addition to the travel inspired series. It’s the perfect size with an over the shoulder strap for keeping both hands free to shop and explore.
The Mini Overnighter is MISCHA’s daily alternative to the larger Overnighter. It’s the carry all bag that all the ladies have been asking for; something you can take from the office to after work drinks.
