Crafted as part of BONIA’s Spring/Summer 2020 ISOLE Campaign, the Ithaa collection is a testament of BONIA’s affinity with the ocean and the life within it. Honouring BONIA’s principal to redefine the meaning of traditional through a design that stays modern, elegant, and contemporary, the Ithaa collection displays the unchallenged beauty of Mother of Pearl that is often found in the shells of various marine molluscs.
‘Ithaa’ itself carries the meaning of Mother of Pearl in Dhivehi, a language spoken in Maldives. Inspired by the ocean-locked country that brims with the wonders of the underwater kingdom, the Ithaa collection aspires to transport people into the deep ocean and see the magic of aquatic life, by bringing the luminous shades of Mother of Pearl to the fore.
Coming in three bag ranges: namely waist pouch, sling bag, and backpack, the collection is also trimmed in calf split leather and accented with mesh fabric and gold accessories. Further elevating the shades of Mother of Pearl is the colour of the bag, which comes in the option of white and black.
In line with its dedication to celebrate the abundance of the sea life, Ithaa explores the nautical elements, aquatic creatures, and transparent materials in its design and colours. The aptly named ISOLE campaign in which it is part of, which translates to ‘island’ in Italian, is a testimony to this.
