Recently I hosted 'Bebe India's Tropic Rendezvous Event', at the Bebe Store, Bandra, that celebrated the unveiling of Bebe's Summer
Collection’14, with it's Tropic Rendezvous themed collection. It was in association with my blog 'Feisty Fox Diaries'.
The inspiration behind Bebe’s Tropic Rendezvous Collection is the true summer time spent by the Bebe girl in a Tropical paradise. Filled with lush colors, sensual fabrics and alluring silhouettes, the collection takes the brand’s signature ‘sex appeal’ on an island bound adventure. Their exclusive prints include palm trees, sunsets, tropical blooms, butterflies, to bird wings, paired with vibrant colours & neon hues.
The key tropic rendezvous pieces include crop tops, maxi dresses, midi skirts, soft “jogger-style” pants, jumpsuits and bodycons. Cut-outs, peplums, high-waists & high-low hemlines are featured throughout, as are plunging necklines and opulent embellishments. There is just the right balance of solid colours and prints.
The collection’s key colours are ‘Bold’ offering smoking pinks, hibiscus and palace blue, purples, orange and black. Vibrant yellows, parakeet, lime green, blue curacao and lemon zest in neon shades accent the colour pallet; all reminiscent of the tropical environment.
For summer 2014, Bebe’s standout accessories include pop-colour handbags, tribal inspired and oversized chain necklaces, statement cuffs and wide belts. Sexy, strappy sandals, lace-up booties and platform heels with chic treatments and hardware rounds out the collection and completes the Tropical summer look.
All in all, the collection is made to make you want to run away to the beaches, sip on coconut water, wear flower hair-wreaths and jump into the mysterious ocean but yes, all in style.
It was an chic evening of Fashion, Fun & Glamour with a stellar entourage of fashionistas, prominent fashion bloggers, models, women entrepreneurs, both television & bollywood actresses and the media in attendance.We had a fun interactive evening planned for all the wonderful ladies, we had a 'Bebe Style My Look' contest, fun Photo-booth with tropical themed props, fabulous wine by 'Grover Zampa' & light bites, hip music, the most adorable bebe logo cupcakes, of course lots of shopping with guests enjoying a flat 25% discount on bebe merchandise and everyone went home with a Bebe goodie bag.
I choose to wear my personal favourite from the tropic rendezvous collection, this stunning printed high-low dress in shades of bright blue, pink & purple with cut-out details on the neck paired with these pink sexy strappy wedges with a wooden platform. I also doubled up as the anchor for the evening. The decor was also added a lovely tropical vibe, with parrots, coloured feathers, palm leaves and lots of flowers. All the guests were welcomed with an assistant putting a pink flower in their hair, to set them in the tropical mood on arrival to the venue.
We had a lot of enthusiastic fashionistas and fashion bloggers participate in the 'Bebe Style My Look' Contest. They were made to choose coloured chits which has different occasions mentioned, they had 20 minutes to style themselves or their friends from the new Bebe Tropic Rendezvous Collection. The occasions included beach look, yacht party, resort chic, trip to miami, clubbing, date night,red carpet & a few more. They also were asked to sashay down the pink carpet in their bebe ensemble and to describe the inspiration behind their look.
The participants all rushed to style their look with full zest and excitement.
