THE HUMAN CONNECT
"Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship."
— Brené Brown, Professor of social work at the University of Houston
Human beings have an innate desire to connect. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to connect with each other and feel a sense of belonging . We are social animals which thrive on connection- infact one can almost say that human connect is the driving force behind everything we do.
Much awaited, the time has come for us to emerge from the fog of prolonged isolation. Conversations of how to move towards foregoing the idea of a largely virtual life are starting as humanity opens its doors again, and starts resuming its shared lives.
Inspired by bridging this transition towards a new beginning, one of rebuilding our selves and our human connect, Perona brings people together yet celebrates their unique individuality through our Fall Winter 2021-2022 collection - THE HUMAN CONNECT .
Highlights of the Collection :
- Soft, warm hues : Peaceful sage, camel, ivory, cognac, pine, soft neutral earthy shades of brown and beige, the colour pallete shows warmth and tranquility, invites conversations, reaches out to encourage others to share their lives with ours.
- Embracing layering : Chic, minimalistic layers styled in experimental flattering evening wear sillouettes give centre stage to the concept of taking off our external layers of protection, crossing over the threshold of private to public life, and letting people in to share our lives together.
- Kaleidoscopicnecklines : We present a kaleidoscope of necklines as a powerful creative touchpoint of this collection to draw the attention of the eye upward towards your face, and frame it in a flattering way. The collection features a variety of elegant cowl necks, boat or bateau , minimal funnel necklines, artistically crafted asymmetrical necklines. After two years of covering our faces we bring the focus back to the face as a vehicle of expression to bond with our community .
