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’.
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, what is your design signature?
Asymmetry, strong silhouettes, edgy contrasts, odd shapes, unexpected cuts, inspirations taken from Japans culture.
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.
