Amanda’s SS’14 Inspiration

Leaving the coast, the Amanda Wakeley girl travels inland for SS’14… Her African summer draws her to unknown, unexplored planes… Her wardrobe absorbs and is inspired by the culture she experiences around her… obscure tribes with elaborate dress… dramatic jewellery and extravagant body adornments… hand woven tapestries and textiles… rich, vibrant colours…

Amanda Wakeley SS'14 London Fashion Week Amanda Wakeley Spring Summer 2014 Collection

Her wardrobe retains a casual edge but her look is altogether more crafted… more considered. Trim, texture, weave and print are of utmost importance. Trousers and statement pants become as important to her as dresses… In the summer heat, sleeveless and short sleeved jackets are her uniform of choice… She becomes more daring with new shapes, fabrications and prints. She mixes prints and texture and her rules are less strict… She has a new ethos… ‘mismatched coordinates’.

Enjoy her journey with us… see the full SS’14 collection now.
