Our aim is to create timeless, elegant, quality clothing. We love traditional fabrics, strong women, modern shapes and vintage details. Colenimo is committed to making in the UK. All woven pieces are produced in London and fabric is sourced in England.
A graduate of Tokyo Mode Fashion University, Colenimo founder Aya Nakagawa worked for over eight years honing her design skills while employed in Tokyo. Using many European factories and fabric suppliers, she developed a passion for classic clean construction and quality traditional manufacture.
Aya began Colenimo in 2007 after moving to London and has been creating collections since – designing, sourcing and producing in the UK. Early pieces grabbed the attention of a number of independent London shops as well as stores in Japan. Colenimo has gained a loyal international following and has been featured in magazines including Elle, Monocle, Frankie, Stella, Grazia, Timeout, So-En, Ginza, Fudge.
