Yesterday I passed by the Amina K. SS13 collection launch in Zamalek and I was impressed. As soon as you spot the location you’ll find an array of colorful clay pots (2olal) welcoming you to the cute Zamalek nook. Then you find yourself walking through a zen-like cobblestone passageway to enter the wovenshreds boutique. The boutique itself was well thought out with the first room displaying the stunning turquoise woven bamboo wall with a mannequin sporting a floral & colorblock look, another wall with pictures of SS13 lookbook modeled by Tara Emad and the final wall displaying the colorful woven clutches. Then the racks of clothing begin…
The clothes themselves are comfy, cool and classic Amina K. You’ll find many comfy pants, jumpsuits and maxi dresses in different silhouettes and prints coming in cotton and linen with woven accents. The cool pieces have to be the biker vests and jackets with a woven back, which can be worn either zipped up or open for a more comfy and loose look. The classic Amina K.’s are the many shirt and cardigan options whether colorblocked or floral coming in popping colors.
These are my favorite looks from the SS13 lookbook.
Today is the last day to check out the Boutique experience in Zamalek. You have til 9PM and I say it is worth the trip.
Location: 5 Sheikh el Marsafy Street, Ground Floor, Zamalek
