Aya Nakagawa was one of the first designers I’ve ever featured in a post on my blog, and I am proud to call her a friend. Her collections are feminine, and edgy at the same time. Nakagawa has a fresh and unique vision that makes any fashion lover jealous they didn’t come up with it first. This season Nakagawa’s line Colenimo presents “Wrens” inspired by the female motorcycle dispatch riders of WWII. “These pioneering women undertook daring, dangerous work delivering urgent orders and messages. Fuelled by a powerful sense of camaraderie they excelled as dispatch riders and were often seen taking their motorcycles, in the name of duty, through perilous conditions.”
“The collection consists of reversible a-line wool and cotton-moleskin coats, heavy melton duffle coats with shearling collars and metal buckles and wool-linen tailored suits. Bonded cotton shower-proof coats, pure silk crepe dresses and tops with detachable collars.” Shop her collection here!
