Known for its cutting-edge aesthetics and artistic yet easy-to-wear looks, the co-lab consists of 12 ready-to-wear pieces, shoes and accessories. Founded by Natalia Alaverdian in 2012, London-based brand A.W.A.K.E. Mode stands for “All Wonderful Adventures Kindle Enthusiasm”, reflecting the designer’s personal and unique approach. Its collections are inspired by intercultural and historical references from art to cinema.
“It was great to be able to collaborate with & Other Stories. There is this sense of joy, inclusiveness and warmth in the brand philosophy that has a lot in common with our brand ideals. It’s not just about women dressing women, but also about creating a garment that puts the wearer at ease. A.W.A.K.E. Mode is all about storytelling, and & Other Stories was obviously the perfect combination, ”says Natalia Alaverdian, founder and creative director of A.W.A.K.E. Mode.
“We love A.W.A.K.E. Fashions for innovative cuts, risky combinations and the distinctive expression of modern femininity. We are thrilled to be able to partner with such a strong voice in fashion. The collection is very special and sophisticated, “says Karolina Ekman, Head of co-labs at & Other Stories.
