Collection Preview: Eugénie AW17

To kick off NZFW!

Our pals at Eugénie are currently gearing up for their NZFW show feat. chill babes and chiller fashions. The AW17 range that's about to hit the runway is a textural trip inspired by the coolest cool girls. 

We popped by design whiz Elizabeth Eugénie Wilson's studio to get a pre-show preview and literally die a little at the velvet, leather and snakeskin combos. Check out the red hot range above and get Liz's vibe reading on the collection below. 

Looks like:

"I wanted to try to capture some of the spirit of Debbie Harry with the metal of Charlotte Rampling. There's a bit of Tom of Finland and Midnight Cowboy thrown in for fun as well."

Feels like:

"I love the play of velvet and leather, and those textures were a big influence. Plus denim will always be huge for me, I love its Americana vibe — especially head to toe."

Acts like:

"I love punkish women who have their own unique thing going on. Lots of the girls I cast in the show are friends of mine who inspire me, so I just steal from them by tapping into their personal style."
