Spring/Summer 2020
“I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”

Referencing a text by Maya Angelou, WINNIE’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection speaks on freedom and celebrating the unknown. Idris found power in how strength of character and passion can help overcome the hand you’ve been dealt.

Nostalgic silhouettes celebrate the past and remind us of what we have been through while weaving cashmere, silk, lace and 15 micron wools celebrate what the future potentially holds.
