ANNAKIKI F/W 17/18
The ANNAKIKI Autumn-Winter collection for 2017/18 show was a Pink and Pleather parade. The atmosphere and clothing morphed into a cinematic morphia of Blade Runner and Hunger Games. The collection was on trend and sellable. With 80’s shoulder blades and what I noticed that all almost all garments had pockets or a hoodie. The look was high-waisted pants with a casual luxury logo hooded jacket our blazer. We defiently want to Kiki with ANNAKIKI.
