If you fancy picking up some late summer sale items why not head over to Colenimo? Their S/S13 collection, which is now featured in the archive sale, is inspired by Helen Wills Moody, a famous tennis player from the 1920’s and early 30’s.
The garments include British mill wool/linen suits, pure silk crepe dresses and simple cotton sun dresses made from British men’s shirting fabric. My favourites are the backwards sailor tops and the over-dyed shirts coloured with English woad, a natural deep indigo dye.
Colenimo is a small London-based company that produces all its clothes in the UK. Founded by Aya Nakagawa, the label strives to evoke a perfect vision of yesterday, creating timeless, elegant clothing in modern shapes with vintage details.
If tennis whites aren’t your thing, you may prefer the motor racing inspired A/W collection coming soon…
