Nino Bollag SS/13 – Text & Images by Aisling Connell




Dear Shaded Viewers,

Hundreds of terracotta plant pots were dotted around a revolving circular catwalk at the Nino Bollag show earlier this evening. It was a beautiful and effective presentation which will not be forgotten in a hurry. Following the "official" presentation, models wearing pieces from the collection roamed around amongst the crowd, socialising and allowing us a closer look at the clothes.

A dull colour story contributed to the relaxed mood of the collection, although several small details caught my attention. Interesting zip placements, subtle colour gradiation in a classic mac jacket and black floral embroidery all over a two tone jumpsuit but to mention a few. What initially seems like a very casual and simple collection may deserve a second, closer look.
