For FW 19/20 Collection, the focus is on the creative woman and on the whole process of creation and its celebration. Following on from the thread of the pre-collection (the woman as artist), we dive deeper into her world to intimately observe how she creates and develops her work in the workshop or atelier and then we accompany her in public.
The artist’s functional working attire sparks inspiration for the season in smock shirting, lab coats and other workwear, while the show pieces are curated to harness a bolder and more polished feel, incorporating tailored, sleek and structured pieces. Channelling the spirit of Hannah Hoch and Emilie Flöge, the debut of the collection marks the Presentation of an accomplished, sophisticated, strong woman. Finally emerging from the studio and stepping confidently into the gallery, she introduces her work and herself to the world.
Made exclusively for NEHERA in its native Slovakia, a woven fabric reminiscent of Annie Albers’ tapestries can be found across the collection, including on knee-high and mid-calf boots. Colourful graphics are placed on panelled jacquard knitwear and printed viscose pieces. This season’s colour evolves from last collections palette of blues, browns and honey, bringing with it rich shades of aubergine, vigorous orange, light blue denim and steel grey.
Emotive message of creativity as a measure of inner strength of any entity and celebration of art is enhanced by collaboration with renowned Slovak visual artist. Graphic patterns were prepared exclusively for NEHERA by Ondrej Rudavsky, a filmmaker, director, animator, graphic designer, sculptor, multi-genre visual artist.
