If you love layering, Amandine is your dream come true, label-wise. Whether you like to layer two pieces or six, you can do so without swamping your curves with their feather-light pieces. Look out for wafer-fine knits with asymmetrical hemlines and genius draping.
One of the biggest fashion stories last year was the layered look: different pieces can be skillfully combined by layering them over each other. This trend continues to be very popular this year, and with the Amandine label, plus size women can now achieve the look very successfully.
As well as the highest quality materials, special designs and high levels of comfort, the Amandine collection allows women from size 42 to combine several items without hiding their figures. Women should always be able to feel comfortable in their bodies and wear feminine clothes, no matter what their body size and shape and the label has always been faithful to this philosophy.
Amandine was founded by the French designer Amandine Leforestier. She was inspired by her travels in America, Asia and Oceania; while learning new cultures, she also learned to be satisfied with the simplest things.
After returning from her travels, she founded the Amandine Leforestier label in 2013. Her goal was to design feminine, minimalist fashion. She also placed great emphasis on mindful, sustainable fashion: she wanted to convince women to buy fewer fast-fashion items and rather to opt for fewer but higher-quality purchases.
Fashion conscious women should be pampered by premium materials that are very comfortable to wear. Furthermore, every single piece of clothing should be long lasting, like the clothes she wore on her travels. Equally, each piece should be fashionable and suitable for wearing on on any occasion.
One year after founding her first label, the designer began to design fashion for women from size 42. The reason behind this was that Leforestier did not want to pursue an ideal of beauty, but to remain faithful to her concept of minimalist and mindful fashion.
The difference between her first brand and Amandine is that her plus size label focuses on the layered look. Nevertheless, each piece of clothing is as minimalist as the items in the Amandine Leforestier range.
The collections are available at navabi in sizes 42 to 52. The brand's classic styles, such as light cotton sweaters, are available in bright, cheerful colours.
Amandine fashion collections specialise in fine details and high-quality materials, which when worn in various combinations offer unique possibilities for the layered look. At navabi, you will discover classic fine knit sweaters in different colours and exquisite petticoats made of tulle and other delicate materials can also be found.
So that women can carry off the the layered look successfully, Amandine places great importance on the use of suitable fabrics: most of the sweaters consist of 100% cotton or cotton with viscose. These fabrics are particularly comfortable on the skin and make the items ideal for layering.
However, it is the design that makes the label unique: the tulle petticoats have a transparent wrinkle effect fabric as well as playful ruffles at the hem, so they can be combined with tight leggings or skinny jeans.
To sum up: Amandine is made for women who know exactly what they want and who do not want to hide their curves. The items are not only trendy but also environmentally friendly as they remain true to the designer's sustainable philosophy. It is for these women that the brand designs fresh collections of unique fashion every season.
