HVANA Clothing + HVANA Shoes = Imagination!

HVANA Clothing + HVANNA Shoes = Imagination!HVANA, the luxury streetwear collection, born from a collaboration between Fornari and the DJ, producer and artist Howie B launched in London in January 2005 (FW05/06). Howie B’s philosophy of being individual forms the soul of the non-conformist SS 06 collection and his signature stamp, ‘the black sheep’, completes the HVANA DNA. HVANA is made with the highest quality textiles: soft cashmere and Japanese ‘Kurabo’ denim.

The SS 06 collection introduces 3 main stories: Logo, Waist and Vegetables. Logo: a simple, clean sheep logo features on V-neck tops with short and long sleeves. New colours are white, brown and military green which contrast with the HVANA bright red, blue and green. Waist: ironic, bizarre and sometimes provocative slogans appear on tops: ‘Don’t Waist my Love’, ‘Waist Watchers’, ‘Waist of Time’, ‘World Waist’, ‘Waist me’, ‘I did it my waist’ etc. Vegetables: a 2nd group of messages appears in the ‘Vegetables’ range: fine cashmere t-shirts with all-over prints of Sprouts, Tomatoes, Aubergines and Radishes. To extend the collection a new mixture of cotton and cashmere features with huge images, i.e. a Tomato stating ‘Eat Me’. Fabrics: the cashmere is light as a feather and breathable, suitable for summer and ready to be worn on naked body, like a second skin. Jeans are in the highest quality Japanese ‘Kurabo’ denim in colours of black, white and denim blue.

Footwear: The launch of the Hvana “X-Ray” sneaker collection. The X-Ray Footwear line makes a statement with its anthropomorphic design, a clear insinuation to sheep hooves and features the same messages as the T-shirts.Accessories: Hvana belts, rings and necklaces have the iconic sheep head in vintage old gold.

    I bought several pieces of Hvana last summer at the Noventa Grados store in San Sebastian. Great stuff….get lots of compliments on it. I’m trying to track it down in the USA now – not having much luck though.
