Childhood trips to Tijuana inspired Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock's Spring 2013 collection for Vena Cava. The offering was infused with the feeling of Summers spent south of the border: plenty of colorful stripes abounded on everything from jackets to skirts, while a triangle cutout detail decorated the necklines of a number of garments.
There were office-appropriate clothes (a pair of plain yet well-tailored black trousers comes to mind) as well as flirty cocktail frocks in vibrant colors and skirts in interesting prints. A feeling of inclusiveness made it an even richer offering. "The clothes are not just meant to look good on an 18-year-old model," Mayock said. "They are for real women to wear every day."
