Amanda Wakeley stated to be thrilled to be collaborating this season with Danish shoe designer Camilla Skovgaard, with whom she has created killer heels for summer (in zebra or chocolate brown).
The exclusive shoe collection is going to be available to buy in Amanda Wakeley designer clothes stores and online in early February. Signing up to the Amanda Wakeley newsletter, members receive free delivery for the Camilla Skovgaard for Amanda Wakeley shoe collection.
“This is truly a shoe for women designed by a woman “ said Amanda Wakeley, “Supremely se xy but utterly comfortable and wearable. I know that I for one will be living in these shoes this summer!”
The Camilla Skovgaard for Amanda Wakeley shoes were shown at Amanda Wakeley’s Spring Summer 2010 London Fashion Week in September 2009.
Gaining recognition for their aesthetic fluid-edges style combined with high quality shoe making, her shoes are embraced by fashion’s most influential editors and tastemakers around the world.
Amanda Wakeley’s Spring Summer Womenswear Collection has been passionately inspired from Indian traditionally dressed men and women, past and present, from Kerala to Rajasthan, by the way the women wear their sari’s with such creative ease; the soft silhouette; the flowing of fabric; the wrapping of the strong hot colours around the body; layering of textures; flashes of embellishment; flashes of skin between the choli and draped sari; the wrinkled texture of the churidaar and dhoti pants.
Amanda Wakeley’s women’s designer dresses silhouette is soft, but bold in drape, wrapping around the body encompassing pleats, ruches, tucks, twists and gathers. Soft tailoring fabrics of fine wool and cottons drape rather than restrict and are layered over sarong type dresses and designer summer skirts with ease and fluidity.
Fabrics are a real mix of textures and are intended to be worn as layering pieces; satinised chiffon, fluid and light with degrade colour; lightest chiffon jersey has full drape which flows around the body; crepe backed satin slides over the body, suspended from leather knotted necklaces. Degrade sequin creates amazing texture with its glossy sheeting effect; a new solid scuba feel jersey mixed with light viscose draped jersey, circle cutting contours around the body softly.
