Romantic surrealism, purposefully girlish and with a strong relationship to tradition and nature. This is the new collection SS2021 from Natalie Dufkova. The fruit of the recent period of isolation which has resulted in the premiere of brand NANICHE.
Nymphae builds on Dufka's previous work in the expressiveness of oversized forms. Instead of jackets and fashion objects it works for the first time with the theme of large evening gowns. They are also characterized by a moment of surprise, which we encounter across its portfolio. At first glance, dreamy sculptural forms in shades of fuchsia, dusty rose or purple are undermined by elaborate folds, shiny materials and eccentric accessories.
Monochrome silk, chiffon, satin and upcycled damask from a grandmother’s dowry play the main roles in the new collection. A melancholic tone is supported by custom-designed jewelry from BOLD studio by Markéta Kratochvílová and gender-neutral Shoedaism shoes by Karin Onderková.
