Eugénie A/W 2013

Former graphic designer (and Karen Walker design assistant) Liz Wilson has launched a capsule concept collection of her new brand, Eugenie. The concept collection features sculptural and refined cuts in an ice cream colored palette.

The play on masculine fashion for the female form is something tricky and it has huge impact on blurred genders. Usually these kind of styles may have the result of showing unclear and unresolved design aesthetic but as a matter of fact Eugenie designer Liz Wilson has found a fine balance between these differing styles.Currently showcasing the New Zealand based label’s AW 13 collection, the ex-Karen Walker design assistant is independently paving the way for refined, elegant and down-right fabulous womenswear with a considered dynamic of new-age feminine nonchalance.

Design01 - Eugenie Concept Collection

Eugenie is the brain child of former graphic designer (assistant to Karen Walker) , Liz Wilson. The collection isn’t shy, embracing an icey color pallet and strong work wear ethic.

“I’m fussy about using good quality fabrics”, and doesn’t it show?

“I am in also no way trying to make women look demure or cute, my philosophy is to make unfussy, well crafted garments, that create a feeling of ease, elegance and effortlessness for the wearer”.

Eugenie - by Liz Wilson

An eclectic mix that seems to be inspired by geometry, androgynous forms, as well as delicate prints and dreamy pastel/neutral pallets, that bring to mind Stella McCartney, Balmain and Céline. These were my first thoughts when I came across Eugénie, the New Zealand brand yet to be released by Liz Wilson.

Liz Wilson was design assistant to Karen Walker and won the Fashion Quarterly/Tresemmé Young Designer of the Year in 2011.

Boxy coats and fitted trousers in mint and lilac, great pointy platform shoes

Silver toe caps, delicate paisley print and wide brim fedora

Camel coat, jersey knotted top and silk minty pants

I, personally am very curious discovering the full collection. Seems very interesting
