AINE fall/winter 2018 took reference from Vladimir Nabokov’s novel “Lolita” and borrowed his misconstrued novel's title - that has evolved into a subculture and style.

 

Inspired by the mix of subculture and a reference of the Lolita's ‘nymphet’, this collection creating a sense of style that took inspiration from children's clothing of 19th century Europe and the fairy tales. From a bell-shaped or A-line skirts to a whimsical sheer organza jacket paired with socks. Some of the baby-doll dresses detailed with Peter Pan collars, details to remind us of a woman’s treasured childhood memories while growing up as a girl.
