It was all about prints at Aminaka Wilmont. This season, digital prints - inspired by animal hides, skins and furs - made a strong appearance throughout. Simple dresses were given an edge, teamed with leather over-the-knee boots. The print also appeared on tops teamed with woolen high-waisted, over-the-knee trousers and on tops with voluminous sleeves teamed with a black skirt with a high slit at the back.
The prints were paired with leather shorts and boots and waterfall, asymmetric jackets. Simple black blazers were given leather sleeves and fur accents running down the lapels - teamed with the graphic-printed trousers in white and purple.
Although the colour palette for Aminaka Wilmont'sAW10 collection was kept strictly neutral, it was not refrained to the all dark black and grey theme that we witnessed so much of across the board last Fall. Instead the design duo used dark and light inky blues, off-whites, pale silvery greys and tarnished browns. Patterns were the Scandinavian pair's strength - bias-cut, figure-flattering dresses came out in patterns reminiscent of marble, some geometric and others with sweeping streaks from light to dark hues.
The collection was predominantly made up of slinky, asymmetric dresses, however when the odd jumpsuit or criss-cross detail skinny-fit trouser appeared, they were equally as lust worthy, particularly when styled with a matching jumper and neck-burying, chunky scarf perfect for the coming, and inevitably cold winter. It might be hard to choose favourites between the pieces, but we're loving the curve-hugging wrap mini-dress with long sleeves for the party season, and the petrol-blue shift worn with separate sleeves.
