Rianna + Nina – A magnificent mixture Fashion week 2018
Rianna + Nina – Ready to Wear SS19 collection
Mixing colour and patterns and textures requires a sure hand and an instinctive editorial eye not to descend into a mess.
– by Tony Glenville
Using a riot of colour and texture, myriad scales of design and abstract and figurative motifs is like a high wire act of expert balance.
Well if you want to see the most wonderful examples of how it can work meet Rianna Nektaria Kounou and Nina Kuhn, they spin and juggle colour and pattern and texture like magicians in beautifully proportioned pieces designed to flatter and flirt with any figure.
Wear top to toe or mix a single piece with denim or basic black. Add a cascade of necklaces and rings as Rianna herself does or simply slip into a tired dress and be ready for an entrance.
Going through the collection the love and delight in the product is clearly communicated, and from a Swarovski embellished dress to a simple pyjama suit, the care and consideration of line and proportion in every piece is perfection.
Originally money using vintage fabrics and scarves, now with some pieces woven on antique looms in Athens, there is still a heritage element to the pieces; these are the collectibles of tomorrow ready to wear today; bravo.
