Rainbow Winters - Autumn/Winter '11

Recently I have discovered another relatively new brand. Designed by Amy Konstanze Mercedes Rainbow Winters, the brand 'Rainbow Winters' debuted their first ready-to-wear collection at London Fashion Week in September 2010.

What I love about Rainbow Winters is the way that they combine cutting-edge science with high fashion such as the way her first collection includes pieces which change colour in reaction to sunlight or water.

The 'Illuminated Clothing' line uses fibre optic woven fabric, LEDs and EL wires to create dazzling effects on the catwalk:

The 'Picasso Explosion: Sound Reactive Dress' is made of neoprene tubes with electroluminescent panels and animates in response to sound:

Inspired by liquid geometrics and light paintings, the interactive Autumn/Winter collection pays tribute to  the 1965 Piet Mondrian collection of Yves Saint Laurent and the twentieth century artists Picasso and Kandinsky.

The luminescent ink dot pattern on this Fuchsia Silk Petal Dress glows blue under UV light

This Orange Mondrian Coat looks very chic and also changes colour under UV/sunlight

I also like this Picasso Scarf in mushroom grey and fuchsia

I shall definitely be keeping an eye on this brand as it grows and develops, as although it is very new it has already intrigued me.

Check out their website at and they're also on Twitter at @RainbowWinters  


  1. I really like the Fuchsia Silk Petal Dress. All of the designs are very "out of the box." Sort like modern art meets hot new fashions. The Picasso scarf is wonderful, as well as the sound reactive dress. The orange mondrian coat has a nice cut to it, but I'm afriad I'm old enought to think the pattern reminds me of the 1971 Partridge Family television programme's tour bus colour scheme.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Nancy. Glad you like the brand.

  3. Your style is very unique compared to other folks I've read stuff from. I appreciate you for posting when you've got the opportunity, Guess I
    will just book mark this page.
