Capsule Collection Mwachii Lunn by Ayimach_Horizons Celebrates Spring Equinox 2021

Available on March 20, 2021

Published on March 18, 2021

March 20th marks Spring, and Fashion celebrates the season with shapeshifting looks by Ayimach_Horizons. The new capsule collection transforms beyond expectation offering maximum versatility, comfort and style. The collection is inspired by everything Spring and naturally shaped in silk and cotton. This year, Equinox illuminates Mwachii Lunn, which translates to the moon at half-mass in the Michif language. Ayimach_Horizons places focus on color blocking and geo-metering, punctuating our relationship between place and time. Triangulations in the garments point to energy sources and our reciprocal relationship to them.

ᐊᔨᒪ / Ayimach is a remix of cultural references and projects into spaces of Indigenous Futurisms as materials and pallets share a platform with traditional custom and aspirational visions of transformation. ᐊᔨᒪ / Ayimach translates from Nēhiyawēwin or Cree to “a fortunate change of events leading towards success.” This capsule collection’s main design elements draw inspiration from Spring, yellow, the east and the power of new beginnings. Various sensuous blends of silk in georgette, taffeta, and dupioni push silhouette into unpredictable directions with soft heavy-weight cotton and denim.

Through conversations about Cree cosmologies and sacred geometries and inspired explicitly by Spring Equinox, Indi City creates new accessories for this capsule collection. Indi City mindfully weaves the teachings of sacred adornment into contemporary wearable art. To adorn the Ayimach Spring capsule collection, signature Moon Phases and Medicine Florals are remixed to flow with the garments’ spirit. Seeding earth by way of the sky, bringing in rainbow colour and silver mirror the collection speaks to light, the energy systems within each being and the intrinsic connection between the Moon and the movement of water. All these custom accessory pieces will be available on the Indi City.
