Amber & Indigo Ice Queen
Amber & Indigo collections have always celebrated the Alter-Ego, and their latest collection, Ice Queen, is no different. “Ice Queen is all about celebrating the fierce queen inside us all.” says Bonnie Stevenson-Wright, Amber & Indigo owner and designer. “She’s as tough as ice and as soft as snow. The Ice Queen is a new breed of woman: strong, independent, entrepreneurial and powerful.”
In order to bring the concept of Ice Queen to life, Amber & Indigo teamed up with cinematographer Nelli Huié to create a magical ice crystal world for a short fashion film. The film features lingerie influencer and model Lorelei navigating a sublime world of crystals and bokeh.
“We wanted to create a crystal world for our Ice Queen that defied any ‘Ice Queen’ clichés, but played on the idea of her being tough as ice and as soft as snow” says Bonnie. “The team strung up 60 metres of hanging crystals from a custom-built rigging to create the structure for this ice crystal playground. We worked with multiple cameras and our beautiful model Lorelei to bring it all to life”. View the video on Vimeo here.
The collection includes 12 new designs, all made from ice white mesh, lace, satin strapping and gold hardware. The designs hark back to the classic Amber & Indigo strappy aesthetic and play on the juxtaposition between the fierce and fragile sides of femininity. For those who like to show a little more skin, Amber & Indigo’s well known fashion-forward pastie collection has expanded with the introduction of a holographic Moonstone Pastie, as well as classic shapes in now in white.
Amber & Indigo is a Melbourne-based independent lingerie label celebrating the alter-ego. Established in 2014 with a small collection and a desire to achieve big things, Amber & Indigo has established itself as a place where women can come to explore their love of the darker side of femininity.
