nyne – decipher ss2013
After showing so successfully at New Zealand Fashion Week this year, Nyne also managed to show us what their SS2013/14 sharing the runway with Kowtow, Company of Strangers and Cybele. They answered a few questions for us as well…
Your collection for SS2013/14 is called…
What particularly inspired you this season?
The collection is titled ‘Decipher’: Succeed in understanding, interpreting or identifying. Taking this idea of confusion then simplified. In the collection this translates in to visual layering, not necessarily through multiple pieces but through contrast panels and features, and cross over and wrap styles, appearing complicated, but actually quite simple.
What is your favourite thing about this collection?
My favourite thing about this collection is as a whole it has this mixture of fresh and uplifting with a cool calming undertone. We’ve used textiles that are easy yet sophisticated. The collection has the ease of summer, but still with a casual edge.
The best thing about showing at New Zealand Fashion Weekend was…
We love collaborating, and showing alongside some of our favourite NZ labels was really great, Kowtow, Company of Strangers and Cybele had great collections. It was quiet cool how well our collections sat alongside each other which made the show cohesive. I also love the aspect of showing collections that are in season.
What pieces will you be wearing yourself?
The Linen Overall is a real winner, easy, cool, functional and fun, it’s my staple piece for this summer.
