‘The Silence of Samurai’ – Lina Andriukonyte at Graduate Fashion Week

Lina Andriukonyte just graduated from University of East London. For her BA collection, the 21-years old Lithuanian was inspired by the Japanese culture and mentality for her graduate collection ‘The Silence of Samurai’.

Lina Andriukonyte's graduate collection

'The Silence of Samurai'

Draped, contrasting fabrics from leathers to chiffons come in a dark-colour palette, with inky blacks and greys, creating a mood of silent darkness and shadow.

Lina's favourite piece of her collection

See-throughs with strong references

Lina, what is your design signature?

Asymmetry, strong silhouettes, edgy contrasts, odd shapes, unexpected cuts, inspirations taken from Japans culture.

Leathers are used for sharp and edgy Samurai jackets.


Soft, flowing fabrics create references of kimonos.

What is your favourite piece of the collection and why?

The black jumpsuit going with a long waistcoat and blue chiffon face-covering scarf. I think of it as elegantly feminine yet edgy and strong.
