Eki Orleans on Spring/Summer 2011 “Wave” collection:
“Growing up near the beautiful Atlantic coastline, Hazel has fond childhood memories of Sundays spent by the beach. The lull and the crashing of the waves was always relaxing and serene; a perfect backdrop that allowed Hazel to dream, create and imagine. It is no wonder that for her Spring Summer 2011 collection, Hazel found her inspiration in the beauty of these waves.
The combination of the turbulent and calm nature of oceanic waves is represented in the beautiful turquoise patterns of the collection. Also, the key silhouettes of the collection evoke the flowing imagery of waves heading to shore. Indeed, with waves as her inspiration, Hazel has created a collection that is flattering, timeless and simply breathtaking.”
