20's tennis inspiration by #Colenimo

The aim of the brand is to create timeless, elegant, quality clothing. They love traditional fabrics, strong women, modern shapes and vintage details

Colenimo was founded by designer Aya Nakagawa that worked for over eight years honing her design skills while employed in Tokyo. Using many European factories and fabric suppliers, she developed a passion for classic clean construction and quality traditional manufacture. Aya began Colenimo in 2007 after moving to London

Love these looks inspired by tennis player Helen Wills Moody, famous in the 1920's and 30's. The collection mixes smart preppy pieces with casual vintage sportswear inspired attire

The garments include mill wool/linen suits, pure silk crepe dresses, fine cotton twill spring coats and simple cotton sun dresses made from British men's shirting fabric. The collection also features a number pieces over-dyed using organic English "woad", a natural deep indigo dye
