From the same designer who delivered a fearless collection of dark and edgy winter looks this past season, the Mandinka SS11 campaign shows that creative Tali Tene has a gifted feel for a more subtle aesthetic as well.

Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, the designer works with fashion photographer partner Shimi Bar to dream up intricate ideas of material adornment, translated into unique looks with a classic and international appeal. In a more muted manner than what the duo released a few months back, the latest whitewashed line is, however, far from simplistic. A closer look at each immaculate article of clothing divulges brilliantly balanced asymmetries, perfectly placed seams and bewitching bound accessories for the arms and legs. The Mandinka SS11 campaign truly offers a delicately cool and contemporary take on summer.
