KINDER AGGUGINI | SPRING / SUMMER 2012
Famed for his punk-rock themed fashion, Kinder Aggugini’s latest collection shows a much more feminine contrast to his stud and zip heavy leather designs.
Dark and mesmerising floral prints drifted in gentle waves amongst his sporty and leisure fuelled garments, with delicious flashes of fruit-inspired colour – zingy lemon and lime as well as sugary raspberry pink.
Modest knee length dresses mixed with edgy leather jackets, in shades that were almost always black, or very close to.
Sheer netted fabrics were tailored to the torso, with intricate bronze floral embroidery adding a feminine and elaborate spin. Sporty racerbacks and eccentric shaped straps were layered to create a leisurewear feel that heavily contrasted against all the girlie floral detail.
Aggugini’s cuts were simple and soft, with gentle drop waists and flowing maxi skirts made from glossy satins with reserved long sleeves.
His clashing of styles is perhaps toned down by his simple and dark colour palettes, only warmed up with the occasional pop of spring colour, and the unfussy prints he has absorbed into the garments.
Yet, Aggugini’s firm eye for detail is ruthlessly dedicated to his rock-star jackets. Emblazoned with careful cuff studs, and slanted zips, his laid-back outer-garments featured crisp whites and low waisted pleat details.
The final pieces in this daring collection changed pace slightly, with midnight blues and dark conker brown satins taking the place of classic black, and pillarbox red shining through on loose shift dresses and peter pan collars.
Silvery off-whites and intricate glitter embellishment and stud detail gave the whole array of clothes a glamorous and spunky finish.
