Amanda Wakeley AW15 Collection at London Fashion Week

Drawning influence from Mongolia’s remote Subarctic Taiga, Wakeley was inspired by the textural layering of the Nomadic tribes and the prevalence of extreme light and dark in this region.

 This is reminiscent of architect Tadao Ando’s sensitive treatment of light – his layering of shadows, tones and gradients informs the season’s colour palette and techniques.

Luxurious cashmere is brushed and felted into ribbed merino.

Textured mohair degrades into a quilted satin twill or contemporary tartan jacquard creating a blend of colour and textured. 

Sumptuous coatings create luxe warmth that envelop the body in cocooning oversized pieces with graphic details. 

Wakeley’s passion for textural contrasts transcends into the bullet bag collection in the form of exotics, calf skin or compact wool.
