“Every bubble is unique, every centimetre is different, every piece of fabric has its own fingerprint. This is the nature of Vlisco’s ancient craft process of authentic wax printing that Bubble Wax celebrates. With its exuberance, Bubble Wax encourages creative expression.”
Bubbles are the natural beauty marks of Vlisco’s wax printing process and are featured front and centre on this new product. Bubble wax zooms in on the iconic Wax Hollandais, featuring the bubbles and create a camouflage effect. Together with the ton sur ton colours this fabric makes tailoring effortless, allowing numerous mix and match combinations. A perfect fabric for revamping the traditional men’s suit.
The original Bubble Wax design features the bubbling effect all over the fabric in bright new colours. Burgundy, purple and turquoise are now added to multiply the possibilities of combinations.
For this season Bubble Wax also comes in 2 new designs.
Like a hybrid between camouflage, digital and animal print, the Bubble Wax zig-zag pattern is perfect to give classic garments an avant-garde twist.
For the second design, the bubbling effect fades in and out and creates diffused wavy lines. The pattern is highly organic and full of movement and can be used to construct fresh and dynamic looks.
Vlisco’s look book photos show the organic bubbles contrasted with sleek tailored lines in men’s wear. A kaleidoscope of garments, shapes and shades give classic looks an avant-garde twist.
For this season Vlisco inspires the contemporary man to transform the Bubble Wax fabric into his own distinctly expressive creation.
It can only be Vlisco
Our heritage is quite unlike any other. Since 1846, we’ve created unique textiles influencing the fashion landscape in West and Central Africa. These fabrics reflect true Dutch craftsmanship and are still known as ‘Hollandais’, from the French word for ‘Dutch’. We are in fact the only brand creating authentic Dutch Wax fabrics recognisable for their unique design, colours and wax craquelé.
