The Mandinka FW11/12 Campaign Carries a Street Cred Confidence

 - Oct 6, 2011
Vulnerability is not in the vocabulary associated with the Mandinka FW11/12 campaign, as it features looks that will leave you untouchable and quietly admired. The line's many strengths lie in its dark colors, asymmetrical styles, unpredictable cuts and its casual layering.

To consider these characteristics together, the overall impression of the edgy urban ensembles is one of spot-on offhand assembly, delivering a captivating paradox that comes with a firm confidence and a carefree bearing. The individual pieces themselves are a jumble of feminine and masculine garments that find common ground in mismatched compositions. The bohemian scarves, patchwork blazers, cropped hooded coats, mod frocks and exquisite lace dresses of the Mandinka FW11/12 campaign will constantly keep you guessing.
