“I will not be another flower, picked for my beauty and left to die. I will be wild, difficult to find, and impossible to forget.” It is with this duality, strength and beauty, that we present Amotea’s FW21 Collection, Edelweiss 90, which for the very first time, introduces alongside eventwear, a new line of ready-to-wear garments, designed to form the basis of a capsule wardrobe. The collection takes its name from the delicate yet resilient mountain flower, the Edelweiss, whose uniqueness lies in the dichotomy of its ethereal exterior and interior strength. Drawing on the tyrolese inspiration, designer Diletta Amodei delves into Tyrolese traditional culture and its costumes, which are still worn by locals in many mountainous areas and are jealously looked after as a well-preserved regional heritage. The designer also takes cues from the 90s, referencing the stylistic codes of grunge and some of the quintessential silhouettes that made that era emblematic. Edelweiss 90 aims to communicate timelessness through heritage, uniqueness and sustainability, rather than fast fashion. Slip silk dresses, kilt skirts, knitted waistcoats characterise are a few of the silhouettes presented in Amotea’s latest collection. From houndstooth to tartan fabrics, reinvented in unexpected variants, to eco-shearling, vegan leather, and repurposed knitwear, Edelweiss 90 strives to strongly affirm a bold and off kilter aesthetic for the season to come. This season, Amotea, takes a further step in the direction of embracing the ethical mission of impacting the environment as little as possible, with a short-term goal of becoming a 100% sustainable brand.

Evangelie Smyrniotaki X Amotea
Intense, confident and modernly elegant, the woman who inspired the Evangelie Smyrniotaki x Amotea capsule collection has a purposeful way of creating her own body conscious looks. She pairs tomboy-like wardrobe essentials with second skin knitwear pieces that revive the iconic minimalism of the '90s. The capsule consists of a shirt and short combo crafted in GOTS cotton poplin and three knitwear pieces that treat sustainable viscose in a contemporary process to create wrap-around garments, all of which are declined in a statement black and white combination, Evangelie Smyrniotaki's signature shade. The design is curated by the talented style icon in collaboration with Diletta Amodei. In line with Amotea's principles, the entire Evangelie Smyrniotaki x Amotea collection is made using only sustainable materials, with a refined supply chain and careful craftsmanship.
