Featured Brand: Colkinikha

I discovered Colkinikha while looking through one of the mori girl mooks. It appears to be yet another Japanese brand with a vaguely European-sounding name. Although it's winter now, it was Colkinikha's Spring/Summer collection that caught my eye.

The collection features light fabrics and floaty, dreamy silhouettes. Will this create a less heavy mori girl aesthetic next year when the temperature rises?

By now, it is clear that booties, often anchoring light and unstructured dresses, are the mori girl's footwear of choice. I love the idea of using a cord as a belt as well. It treads the thin line between shapelessness and structure.

The model's hairstyle and earrings help to soften these outfits.
