aminaka wilmont fall 2010: 'strife'...


Inspired by the 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy the collection focuses on strife and war as well as inner conflicts and social unrest. Pretty heavy stuff, but the designs (especially the digital prints) were utterly enticing and dreamlike. There was subtle detailing with a muted colour palette. Described as depicting, 'how to make do with what is left around - debris, flotsam and scraps.' Organic silk jersey is used as well as heavy crepe de chine, merino wool knit and stark leather.... all to create a sumptuous collection that absolutely transcends anything scrap-like and looks well-defined and entirely coherent. A great show.
