LE PRINTEMPS @NIKICIO

I still have a clear vision of the first Nikicio Mixté show I went to one and a half year ago. One thing I find remarkable from Nina, the designer, is her vision on clothes. One of them being timeless. She says, “I want to challenge the notation of a fashion world. no trends. no seasons. no fads. my clothes have to be able to be worn & last forever."
Clothes with no season/trends? Sounded quite impossible to me especially when at a glance, Nikicio Mixté seems to have an edgy and 'street' vibe. These styles are currently "in" but will it still be "in" in the years to come?

Nevertheless, Nina proved me wrong. I have a couple pieces from her different lines, and for every single one of those clothes I owned, there isn't one that I get bored of. It came to me that the "edge" comes from the styling. When the pieces are examined one by one, they're more like updated classics. And with updated classics, any vibe evoked is possible. Thus, making Nikicio not only ageless, but also versatile.

For their Mixté Le Printemps 2012, Nina created a collection with a laid back skater girl with effortless style at her back of her mind. A nomad, light traveller - a collection for the coolest people with the coolest style.

Looks like snakeskin, not it's not! It's actually Norwegian knit scanned and printed onto silk.

Apart from the neutral color palette, Nikicio collaborates with Kandura ceramics for extra oomph. Kandura succesfully created porcelain beads made of bone china with transparent glaze for the outerwears and accesories, creating something heavy with a delicate beautiful feel to it.

I agree with her, actually. Fashion can be made timeless. I have a designer friend who makes the most gorgeous saris that can be passed from one generation to another.

Love Nina's designs. Thanks a lot for sharing.
