LOVE, BONITO LOUNGEWEAR 22
Love, Bonito launches its newest loungewear collection showcasing its latest in-house print – inspired by the beauty in wilting before the flower can bloom again.
The brand celebrates rest and renewal. Get first dibs on Love, Bonito’s latest loungewear collection centered around the theme of renewal. Inspired by the beauty in wilting before blooming once again, the collection serves as a reminder to rest and take that much-needed time for yourself.
Featuring Love, Bonito’s specialty in-house print, the design was centered around a French saying ‘Fleur Fanée’ – signifying the beauty of a wilted flower. The creation of the unique flower motif starts with pressing a variety of wilted flowers to get the texture, outlines, and shapes of the petals. Guided by the pressed flowers, the motif is then digitally drawn in and colored, before being stylistically arranged to create the Renewed Blooms print.
Made of rayon, a breathable lightweight fabric, the collection is suited for lounging in both style and comfort. Crowd-favorite silhouettes including the kimono, loose-fitting shirt top, and flowy lounge bottoms are back, and the team has also introduced new cuts including a short-sleeved dress with a flattering v-neckline. Thoughtfully made with versatility in mind, pieces from the collection have an added lining that makes them feasible even for a casual jaunt outside.
