On the 6th of September, NINAMOUNAH presented her collection 005 Complete Metamorphosis during the September-edition of Amsterdam Fashion Week 2019 in de Nieuwe Kerk. Ninamounah's fifth collection transfigures the concept of Metamorphosis, following previous conceptual explorations of the intersection between biology and fashion design.
The key silhouette consists of wrapped, soft enveloping shapes. The materiality of organic transformation is visible in the textures of the collection. The opening look was created by the naturally shedded skin of several snake breeds. A beautiful trace of rebirth. Knits resembling reptilian hides are treated with a special concoction of organic resins to create a new textile manipulation.
Tailoring-heavy, the garments are like second skin; made perfectly to its wearer. Strong shapes are countered by soft, molded drapes cocooning the body. Reinterpretations of the label's key pieces, the garments are a natural extension of their archival counterparts.
