The collection explores two opposite seemingly personalities: the graceful aura of ballerinas and the rampant rebellious nature of punks. Through a romantic point of view these two worlds are brought together to recreate "uniforms" to accomodate their every move to convey an outward feeling.
The collection once again explores crossing a line while blurring another. The genderless collection aims to break boundaries yet again on who wears what.
Silhouttes are a take on classic sportswear elevated with playful imagination, keeping true to the DNA of Nicopanda. Next- level material innovations are found throughout in plasticised silk blend chiffon dresses, nylon tulle crystal pleating, bomber jackets in glitter athletic mesh, pearl- embroidered appliques on t-shirts and transluscent technical jersey.
This season also features two collaborative fabric developments; latex hand painted nylon in collaboration with artist Brendan Smith, and digital rose print mercerised jersey t-shirts devised with artist Sam Rolfe.
Adding to Nicopanda's collaborators this season, the brand partnered with Metalgienchi from Italy to bring ballet inspired footwear.
