PAPAIŸO X MEILING
Handcrafted in Trinidad and Tobago
Battimamzelle - PAPAIŸO x Meiling, is a beautiful marriage between PAPAIŸO’s design sensibilities and love of storytelling, and Meiling’s impeccable eye and mastery of the Caribbean’s handcraft tradition. The word battimamzelle is an endearing Trinidadian word for dragonfly - an animal which symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. The collection stands out for its statement dresses and dainty tops that feature delicate ruffles, intricate heirloom finishes and handsewn crochets to mimic the netted wings of the battimamzelle. The colors of Battimamzelle are strong, with deep burgundy, pumpkin oranges, kiwi greens and cappuccino browns coming together to create warmth and vibrance. The natural habitats for this collection are charming, tropical interiors and whimsical garden settings, where flora and fauna are plentiful, battimamzelles and other garden creatures buzz around playfully, and gentle breezes blow through trailing dresses.
