In the case of Amanda Borgfors Mészàros, less is certainly more
Perfecting the art of quality over quantity, Abomé designer Amanda Borgfors Mészàros’s SS22 collection was an exclusive drop of five looks. While it’s a number you can only count on one hand, it didn't at all take away from the collection’s exquisite craftsmanship. In fact, it enhanced it. "All embroidery and knitted details - bustier, cufflinks, lining and shoulder straps – are made from old ribbons and cloths bought in second hand stores" Borgfors Mészàros tells me. "Fabrics with a history, that gets to live again in another shape."
The main fabric used in the collection, which is stunningly all white, was created from a natural linen and silk mix, which Borgfors Mészàros has used in her designs ever since she first discovered it as a student at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm. For her, she's drawn to, "the beautiful delicate texture of it and how it falls on the body".
The collection offers us bellowing, soft feminine silhouettes that beg for a midsummer outing. Appliqué and lace detailing finish cuffs and necklines, while cheeky cut outs via the midriff and back, add to the feminine allure. This is Grecian goddess meets Scandi summer.
