Emotions of the nocturne jungle.
By night, the jungle awakes. Sounds intensify, deepness grows, and eyes emerge from the shadows in a ritual that is both physical and mystical; the mysterious sensuality of the rainforest becomes the inspiration for Balkanica’s new collection.
Zona Tropica reinterprets the sensations that arise from the Peruvian Amazon and proposes a sensory journey: just as humidity, sweat, colors and scents of this amazing portion of nature are felt intensely with all the senses, these new garments are felt in the skin and tell a visual story.
Relaxed and boho-chic silhouettes, trademarks of the brand, make way for more organic, sensual and always elegant forms. Unveiling a performative and dynamic essence, the collection includes reversible pieces, as well as an elastic veins system that allows for adjustment and change and alludes to the rivers slopes. Each garment is a celebration of the pleasure and wellness that comes with being comfortable with oneself, in total harmony.
Zona Tropica introduces its new iconic print: a geometrical duality that finds its perfect balance between the abstract and the figurative.
This print evokes a fantastic world of flora and faunda that invites in a sensorial journey. The palette is rich and deep with tones that penetrate the heart of wild nature.
Balkanica’s new collection acknowledges the world’s healing process, the time for rebirth. We believe that the rainforest appears is the best example of regeneration and resilience: it’s the bearer of an ancestral, cultural and universal energy that connects with the brand’s contemporary vision.
*Balkanica participates as a sponsor for the book that registers Peruvian architect Alexia Leon’s research on the Amazon, for the Venice Architecture Biennale 2023.
Inspired by the artistic work of Henri Rousseau, Thomas Heinz and Roldan Pinedo, our new Zona Trópica print was created by artists Gabriela Maskrey and Jacobo Said, in collaboration with Balkanica’s team.
The print consists in a geometrical duality of abstraction and figurative that reveals the mysteries of the Amazonian flora and fauna in a graphic, playful and elegant manner. Throughout the collection, this print finds its perfect balance with solid color combinations and the presence of specific textures.
The Zona Trópica print comes in maxi, midi and vertical versions. Also, the collection includes an outlined print made from all the colors of the new palette and an otorongo (feline) print, the first animal print ever used by the brand. Hidden in the print are the Inca Steps, a symbol that represents Balkanica’s spirit and an icon that can be found in every collection.
