ODEL has captured the vibe and faded charm of Cuban aesthetics to welcome the summer fashion season with a resounding ‘Hola!’ The shabby chic, cool and easygoing feel inspired by República de Cuba has been combined with the imperatives of Sri Lankan fashion to create pieces that look straight off the designer catwalks of world capitals but are in sync with local climes and moods. Designs inspired by Balmain, Chanel, Rochas, Tibi, Etro, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors reflect the exuberance and creativity of tailored shapes, and free-flowing fabrics with bold hues juxtaposed with sun-faded pastels in a tribute to the fashion world’s current love affair with Havana.
