Sharp and Assertive - Wanda Nylon Presented Nonconformist Design for SS17
On September 28th, Paris based WANDA NYLON, winner of the 2016 ANDAM fashion prize, presented its Spring/Summer17 collection, featuring 28 sharp and assertive looks.
The collection is meant for a strong, independent feminine woman, referencing urban aesthetics, and experiments with numerous materials and textures to enhance a play on light, going from opaque Alcantara coats and fluid silk dresses to reflective jackets, iridescent Swarovski crystals mesh separates and see-through silk looks.
For the first time, Wanda Nylon collaborates with Maison Desrues, a Chanel subsidiary, to create an accessories capsule collection composed of metal waterfall earrings, chain lariat necklaces and 4 models of bags. The eyewear collection is part of a long-term collaboration with Peter & May Walk.
