Muubaa Spring/Summer 2014 Interview

Muubaa Kowie Hologram Skirt

Muubaa redefines what is possible with leather, challenging the notion that leather can only ever look good as a biker jacket. With the release of their stunning Spring/Summer 2014 collection, we decided to find more out about the new season styles and inspiriations, and Muubaa were kind enough to answer our questions.

What were the inspirations behind the new collection?

Muubaa’s Spring/Summer 2014 ready to wear collection captures the essence of off duty style. This season a nineties retrospective provides new silhouettes mixed with grungy notions and boyish oversized shapes. Tough and boxy bikers in summer darks are androgynous, while neons inject a playful vibe to the collection. Relaxed styling finishes the look, complete with crackled leathers and half popped collars. Cool laid-back and reminiscent of bygone decades of rebellion.

Are you influenced by the latest catwalk trends?

Muubaa has taken inspiration from a few key trends from the season and used these to dictate the shapes seen in each piece. However, the dramatic, sensual mood is inspired by nature. Bold and feminine cuts are presented in eye-catching, tropical-tones and botanical greens give a rich injection. Bonded floral surfaces give skins a new luxe appeal.

Do you have a signature style?

The brand’s hallmark is fit, cut and the use of interesting, innovative techniques. Muubaa specialises in a number of distinctive leather treatments and processes which give their leather a unique texture and finish including Garment Wash, Tumble Wash, Hand Painting, Ageing and Over Dyeing. Each design is also fitted individually in house, from sketch to prototype through to final production to ensure the perfect fit.

What are the stand-out pieces from the new range?

Relaxed styling and crackled textures hint at a post-urban traveller aesthetic; primal and roughly Hewn, seen in the Tugela Biker; a tough, androgynous style.

Does the new collection have any surprises?

Metallics are key; hologram leather and dazzling finishes create a display of futuristic surfaces. Acid neons inject a playful vibe to the collection.
