Missibaba Introduces Zodiac Collection

Posted June 2, 2016 by in Accessories

Missibaba just took astrology to a whole new level.

Chloe and Lizel, the force behind Missibaba reveal the #INSPO behind their dreamy Zodiac Collection.

A visit to Buenos Aires Planetarium sparked the creativity for this collection especially when seeing the constellations dance across the domed ceiling left us in awe of the creation we are part of.

The Gemini design and my favourite.

What do the signs of the zodiac mean to you? Do you follow your readings religiously? We would not make drastic life decisions based on frivolous readings but when you dig deeper and apply knowledge gleaned from an in depth reading the path forward can sometimes become a lot clearer.

What was your starting point when creating each sign of the zodiac design? Did you have a specific person in mind for each sign or was it just general knowledge of what each sign represents? General knowledge of each sign was the starting point, but once leather cutting commenced the pieces really started to unfold…
Though the Pisces fish is a riot of colour in order to speak to my dear business partner Liz, with it being her month and all.

If it is even possible, which is your favourite zodiac sign design and why? The Gemini – It feels to have opened up a slightly more sensual route of exploration which is appealing to us moving forward.

Why did you decide on using the Delicious Monster Tote style as a canvas for your creations? It is a wonderfully simple style. The central square panel created a canvas framed in leather which seemed to be a perfect match.

Describe the leathers used in your creations? We have had such fun working with all our delicious new acquisitions. They definitely inspired much of the design. All bags have been made in our luxurious buttery soft locally sourced charcoal. As a background for the designs one of three glitter suedes have been used: Midnight, Gold & Deep Green. The reverse central panel has been done in Midnight glitter suede to mirror the heavenly night sky.
