Spring Summer 2012Tuesday, February 14th, 2012
Aptly named ‘Changeling’, the AMINAKA WILMONT Spring / Summer 2012 collection takes influence from Scandinavian folklore; creatures best described as the offspring of fairies or elves, or legendary creatures that have been secretly left in the place of a human child.
Inspired by beauty that is not always startlingly obvious, this season Maki Aminaka and Marcus Wilmont are redefining the AMINAKA WILMONT woman, building on her uniqueness and individuality.
The focus of this collection is structure; encompassing confidence with feminine cuts and strong shapes. Experiments of new, sprightlier, colourful shades are intertwined with soft explosions of midsummer, blossom and floral prints.
Leather jackets in dusty, soft colours are dynamic and sharp through the designers’ signature tailoring, further adding to the spirited feel of the collection. The silk chiffon shirts and shifts continue the delicate touch, with structure through inbuilt belts and soft, intricate beading on the cuffs and collars.
Woven dresses, asymmetric leggings and structured skirts with billowing tails in ghostly floral prints are defiance that the AMINAKA WILMONT woman is not afraid to be extraordinary.
“We’re really excited for this season, it has always been important to us that the AMINAKA WILMONT brand remains fresh but with longevity and timelessness.” – AMINAKA WILMONT
