The Collection carries the essence of a swing, moving between reflections of the past, the surrealism of the present, and visions of the future.
Another muse for the collection came in the form of two extraordinary women of the past: Elisabetta Gonzaga, a Renaissance noblewoman and salonnière of Urbino known for her elegance, ardent advocate of the most creative minds of the time, and Emilie Louise Flöge, an Austrian couturier, avant-garde businesswoman, and life companion of Gustav Klimt.
The designs of the clothing convey the essence of functional comfort necessary for everyday life, not losing sight of bringing attractive and innovative wear solutions that surprise by overstated emotive gestures balancing the essential understated elegance.
The collection goes beyond what is expected of fashion nowadays and doesn’t shy away from being illogical, peculiar, melancholic, but also playful, surprising, and unpredictable.
The strong influence of “beyond realism” is held throughout the whole collection with surprising coats and blazers, unexpected materials, prints, or color selection. It excels in festive shirts, dresses, and skirts that are vibrant and diverse. All the exuberant pieces flawlessly combine with essential pieces such as classic trench coats, tailored jackets, and trousers for everyday wear.
The core palette used in the collection is the essential Nehera hues of beige, off-white and black, accompanied by special contrast colours, such as flamingo, mustard, gold, and silver; a bizarre juxtaposition that accentuates the dreamy, surreal feeling of the collection.
The expected high-quality materials like virgin wool, wool gabardine, stripe suiting, alpaca, or cashmere Melton are contrasted by unexpected and bold materials such as liquid velvet in gold and silver colour, crinkled lining in silver and black mixed in unanticipated structures.
The usage of print in the designs is a bold move from Nehera in breaking its own conventions and exploring new territories.
As always, Nehera AW21 Collection aims to be an experience and a statement that goes beyond the fashion conventions.
