Aminaka Wilmont - LFW - Tuesday 20th September 2011

Considering this was the last on schedule show of the season the turn out wasn’t great and a few back rows were asked to move forward.

The show opened with photographic floral prints in grey/blue with a few splashes of colour made with silk jersey and sporting almond cut outs. Following current fabric trends there were many sheer fabrics layered over bodies and flashing nipples here and there with neckline sparkling embellishments.

Another common feature was asymmetric cuts with side split maxis and one legged jump suits as well as asymmetric cut out tops. The grey rose floral print continued through the whole collection keeping it consistent, ready to wear and on a theme. The colours varied little from grey except for a few pastels and were not a convincing summer palette although this was a gentle relief from the pop colours that we have seen so much of.


The last few outfits featured warrior like breastplates and arms wrapped in splash print fabric, hinting at a safari edge while the miniskirts and shift dresses were reminiscent of the 60’s.
