introducing london-based designer amina martucci’s dope knitwear collections

June 27, 2012

Always dope to come across talented under-the-radar designers. So when young, freshly graduated artist Amina Martucci hit us up about her knitwear collections (including one called ‘Strange Fruit’, we assume named after the classic song made famous by Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and more), we had to check them out. And we were not disappointed.
She told us: “I’ve been following Afropunk for a while now, and I love how it is so rich in culture! I’ve just recently graduated from Ravensbourne University in London doing a degree in fashion knitwear.”
Martucci uses tie-dye and beached knits, getting bright, colorful, edgy yet accessible results.
Let us know what you think. – Lou C-D
