NACO PARIS SS 16 – BY ALICE DEVELEY

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

"Art is resistance". In a punky state of mind, with military scents and garments in army colours, the french label Naco has pushed the boundaries of creation. As a young designer known for being "the robin hood of fashion", the artist questioned ourselves. Can we continue to remain free spirits and free people in a system affected by doubts and struggles? What is the role of culture behind this uncertain present and future? More than clothes, his new collection is a political work which addresses the issues of liberty and honesty. Do we have to hide ourselves to be accepted or can we be what we are and live as we want ? On the stage, outfits were cut, hatched, full of colours, as filled with passion and anger. There is no need of diamonds, gold or silver, the collection is already brilliant.

Best,

Alice
