On Friday, September 5th, I had the luxury of attending the Misha Nonoo Spr/Sum ’15 presentation at Industria Superstudios. Upon entering the show, I was taken aback by all of the amazingly dressed women waiting to be seated as well. If I’m attending a designer’s showcase for the first time, I look to the attendees for insight into the mood of the collection I’m about to view. During Fashion Week it’s very common for attendees to be dressed in or very close to the designer’s creations. I must say that the softness, effortless chic and femininity I saw amongst the crowd definitely translated into the Misha Nonoo Spr/Sum ’15 collection.
The Misha Nonoo S/S ’15 collection was a breath of fresh air. The collection was a huge sigh of relief from all of the dark, structured, and athletic trends we were wearing this Spring ‘14. Her collection embraced femininity; featuring muted patterns, blush tones and unstructured body skimming pieces. All of her pieces moved ever so gracefully as the models strutted down the runway; each piece playing off of the aesthetic of the next. I loved the effortless combination of cropped tops that skimmed the waistline paired with flowy wide-leg trousers. Just when I thought leather couldn’t get any better, out comes a trio of looks all incorporating a blush tone metallic leather. Amazing! Simply Amazing!
Overall, the show was a delight to see. It was a gentle mix of unstructured tailored pieces, body conscious silhouettes, and featured a vibrant, yet subtle color palette. The team at Misha Nonoo has a sense of humor as well, letting the Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin walk the runway wearing a soft purple dress while toting an iced coffee. The act wasn’t too far-fetched as Dustin collaborated with Misha Nonoo on t-shirts and prints for this collection.
