Behind the Print:

AvA has introduced the ever elegant Shellscape print to the lineup. The seashell pattern is featured on both AvA signature styles and just launched silhouettes. The print lends itself to women who live by the sea, who feel most at home in the tropics, and the ladies who love sophisticated neutrals.

Like all of our stunning prints, this began on the canvas of our founder, Ala. Spending a large amount of time at her home in Antigua, Ala has always been a fan of the sea–the sand, the water, and the seashells. She was taken with the simple yet bold shapes and colors of the shells. The painting translated effortlessly to fabric with pops of deep browns, and subtle grays. It’s crisp white backdrop helps match the print to almost everything from a matching white, cream, browns, grays, and colorful blues. For a sophisticated staple wear the print with matching neutral accessories like oversized white earrings, and a cream sandal. For a walk on the bolder side reach for a red lipstick, a colorful bracelet stack, and a funky heel.

The Titania Cotton Kaftan carries the beautiful print with a complimentary brown detailing that adds visual interest as does the matching belt. Between the silhouette and the print, this look is just asking to be worn on your next tropical getaway. From dinner to dancing to a day at sea, this kaftan offers a classy, breezy look for any activity.

The new Kai Dress is one of the brand’s most dramatic yet with a fitted, short dress topped with a flowy mesh cape. It’s ideal for that dreamy dinner out or for romantic drinks on the terrace. The Shellscape print looks fabulous on mesh like on the Rachel Sheer Mesh Poncho and the Electra Sheer Mesh Topper, both of which pair perfectly over a colorful swimsuit or a matching Caterina Stretch Knit Dress.

We can’t wait to see everywhere the Shellscape print takes you, from the sunny tropics to the stunning seashore to dinner in town. Wherever you go and however you style your AvA piece, we know you’ll feel curated, confident, and effortless.
