Urban Safari: New York designer, Cara Araneta, Pairs City with Jungle Chic


New York designer, Cara Araneta, created new uniforms for the staff at Ka’ana. Check out her mood board and learn about the inspiration behind the uniforms!

“I wanted to create a uniform that did not look like a uniform. The concept was to pay tribute to Belize’s cultural heritage and Ka’ana’s explorer lifestyle.
I was inspired by ka’ana and its beautiful surroundings, vintage red cross uniforms, the masculinity of traditional uniforms and YSL’s ’67 safari collection.
I wanted to mix traditional workwear fabrics with more refined. And redefine vintage styling in a modern way. Just like Ka’ana.”
