Although it was a dreary New York morning, Nanushka contradicted the weather through it’s Fall/Winter 2019 Collection. Created in 2006 by Sandra Sandor, Nanushka is a versatile brand that features pieces that can be worn from day to night.
This year’s presentation took place at 9 West 8th street, near Washington Square Park. As you entered the space, models were spread around two connecting rooms moving slightly every-so-often wearing the new collection. The tiny movements made by the diverse set of models in Nanushka’s presentation demonstrated the movement in the new collection. Uniquely named “Mystery Child,” the assortment of clothes takes a look at the new Nanushka woman, one who mixes different styles in her outfit without risk, and the Nanushka man, defined by a modern traditionalism and nomadic lifestyle.
Made from an assortment of vegan leather quilting, corduroy and faux fur, the collection emitted a 70’s masculine vibe with structured, oversized jackets. In the first room, male models wore new tones of purple and apricot. The second room featured a live musical performance by Yuli, whose silky voice was the perfect backdrop for the the dreamy ambience of the presentation.
In terms of accessories, the models wore stretch knit sock boots, babouche mules and boots in faux fur shearling with sustainable wood heels made by Sophia Monet. Also by Sophie money, the jewelry collection drew inspiration from 70s interiors, and entailed curved earrings that resemble the puffy modular sofas by Joe Colombo & Tobias Scarpa. In addition, the new bags are REACH certified vinyl and hiking boots, made in collaboration with Diemme, are simple and perfect for the city streets.
Nanushka’s “Mystery Child” was the ideal combination of warm, neutral tones and soft textures. The collection’s masculine, seventies vibe and calming backdrop music made for an enjoyable presentation.
