spirit and matter
The presence of the atelier is felt in every Nanushka piece within theSpring/Summer 2023 collection. Titled Spirit and Matter, the newseason illustrates the physical process of craft and design; handcrafted elements co-exist with technical fabrics across the collection, exploring the interconnectivity of beauty and function. Nanushka’s intuitive and organic design approach leaves room for unintentional results such as distorted prints caused by draping, and new silhouettes created by versatile tying techniques.
The concepts of fluidity, self-expression and perception follow on from Resort 2023, with this season offering a refreshed take on juxtaposition. Shirts and dresses are unbuttoned to give a ruching effect, and sheer layers oppose summery knits and heavy-duty denim, with the fabrications taking refreshing prints with ease. Soft pleating brings an understated twist to classic menswear tailoring, presenting relaxed, transformative fits.
“I believe that spirit shines through matter, and Spring/Summer 2023 aims to evoke this sentiment with its expressive textures, colors and silhouettes.
Moreover, this season serves as an embodiment of artisanal luxury –bringing decorative yet functional craft elements finished by local experts to present beautifully crafted garments, inspired by Hungarian heritage. The human touch is not always visible, but it shines through inevery detail.”
Sandra Sandor, Nanushka Creative Director.
Nanushka interlaces feminine and masculine elements throughout this collection, as cinched waists emerge alongside boxy shoulders to accentuate the softness and strength of ready-to-wear. Meanwhile, embroidery details on womenswear and soft accessories, such as crochet stitching and exaggerated fringing, add a multi-textural finish.
Spirit and Matter takes Nanushka’s high-quality eyewear and adds functional frames distinguished by dynamic shapes and contemporary colors. As the new season continues to explore ideas of aesthetic modernity, gold-tone details re-appear in the form of eyewear chains; re-affirming the brand’s focus on instilling function in beauty.
