This winter Mina utilises New Zealand wool, silk and other high quality fabrications to cater to her well considered customer. As a Cocoon protects a caterpillar from the elements, so too the Mina wearer will feel enveloped in warm, beautiful textiles.
Clean lines meet soft translucent textiles throughout the collection, with simple layering being at the core of creating the Mina look. Pared back to perfection, with a focus on executing quality for a long lasting fit.
Perfectly draped asymmetric necklines, and interesting takes on classic styles are seen this in this latest collection. Natalie aims to maintain the balance between classic and contemporary style. Available online now at Mina’s online store.
