Bengaled Blossoms

Bengaled Blossom, a Smooth dress by Irina, is just as rare and majestic as the Bengal tiger itself. To begin, the dress alternates between two stunning textiles, one brilliant white and one with a floral design to mimic the dense canopies of vegetation that cover a jungle. It features two gold, crystal-adorned, elastic straps in place of sleeves. The left side of the dress features crystal foliage wrapping around the bodice and transitioning downward to the skirt. Moreover, the skirt features a tropical-like pattern with an emphasis on the traverse tiger stripes. While the bodice is form-fitting, the skirt is expansive with a voluminous silhouette. 

The embellishments on this gown glow like the amber eyes of a tiger. Featuring premium European crystals in shades of maroon, gold, and silver sewn together to create vine-like motifs. Furthermore, the back of the gown is fully open, revealing a golden figure to peek out from under the white satin draping. Finally, it includes built-in bra cups, a bodysuit, two half sleeves, and a matching hair piece. 

The fashion industry is on the prowl for a revival of fashion maximalism, which they are achieving through the utilization of animal prints. Animal prints have been a classic and ever-changing trend within the industry since the 90s making a huge comeback across all four fashion weeks this year. As seen in Roberto Cavalli’s, Alice + Olivia’s, and Proenza Scholer’s Fall/Winter 22 collections. Although the Year of the Tiger is coming to a close, it’s never late to release your inner roar!
