We met "La Rubia Inmoral" a while ago, she made us laugh all night with her humour, spontaneity and surprised us with her raw honesty. It was an instant connection between women who want to do things differently, play with fashion and see the occurrences of the daily life as an episode of "Sex and The City". We decided to create a collaboration to tell stories of first times: temporary for many, nostalgic for others, but always a beginning. ¿Do you remember how you felt the first time you saw the sea, that you were afraid or maybe when you overcame an obstacle that seemed impossible? That's what this Manual is for, to remember those difficult times we overcome and the strength we have for those coming.
It’s inspired by the message of self love. Have you ever thought that your first love should be yourself? In this collection, we got inspired by the idea of having a commitment with yourself, of celebrating your beauty and embracing your differences. That’s why, we decided to create a pastel color palette that reminisce wedding dresses in the city life, with beautiful fabrics like cottons, tulles and silks. The shapes were fluffy, dresses with big skirts and suits for our “girl boss”, all the splendor you need to celebrate yourself. Besides, our prints were an exploration of polkadots that came in different ways. This collection is a reminder that your first wedding should always be with yourself, and we’re here to support you.
The meaning of the word Feminism is: “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes”. But sometimes it seems like the true sense of the word is forgotten. That’s why, we created this collection inspired by the need of a change of attitude, a revolutionary act, to love and respect each other. It’s time to forget paradigms; it’s time to, together, raise our voices louder than ever and show that in every one of us there is a heroine. Veronica Orozco Abad is a woman who tell stories through her blog “La Divorcée” and her podcast “Vida Real”. For PDHS is a pleasure to present this collaboration, with someone whom we share the willingness to challenge women to know, uplift and develop their potential. Reinforcing our commitment with equality, part of the profits will be donated to the foundation Niñas Sin Miedo, who helps girls in dangerous situations through cycling and education.
A collection based on the heroin’s movie of the 60’s, Barbarella, known for her charisma, erotism and innocence. Designs inspired by the iconic looks of the leading lady with symmetrical prints contrasting with our fun and showy aesthetic. A game of lines in which each graphy represents a different but harmonious world, with pieces that highlight the female figure with various tonalities and representations that managed to take you to the Barbarella's world. Our collection will dress an army of self-confident women.
Inspired by the advertising of the 50's, we create an imaginary in our prints showing the reality of the time but contrasting it with our idea of "empowered woman", according to the campaigns of Time's Up and #Metoo. An interesting proposal mixing the illustrations in which you see the woman dependent and weak, accompanied with quotes and a current context.
Throught out this collection, PDHS wants to exalt the religious icons who have accompanied the colombians for years in situations of pain and fear. Religion is intertwined in the culture, and arises in artistic expressions, like fashion. Our color palette was carried away by our inspiration theme towards darker tones: purpples, blues, red and black go with the simbology in the prints of stained glasses, flowers, crowns and crosses; and like that, the vestiges of our theme appeared in the dresses and shoes.
A collection born from the memorable concept of the Arctic Monkey’s song, of the same name, that evokes a longed place between what’s real and imaginary. “505” is inspired by the work of the Master Fernando Botero; the colourful world and comics of Roy Lichtenstein; the suggestive poetic lyrics of Arctic Monkeys; and the psychedelic fashion of the 60’s. The mixture of these elements make art and fashion a single language.
A collection born from the concept of Lewis Caroll’s poem “Jabberwocky” in his book “Alice through the looking glass”. Jabberwocky, literally means senseless, it was our inspiration to mix to opposite worlds: on one hand the neon bright kitsch side, and on the other pastel colors and the refined style of Rococo.
A collection inspired by the much criticized theme of child beauty pageants. The fake and crazy reality lived by the girls is developed into a surrealistic vision through the world of René Magritte. Always from a childish perspective, the designs show graphic imagery through playful prints. The child's mind is shown by an explosion of colors and silhouettes from a little girl's closet
