Dazed Digital: Interview with Nicomede Talavera
Boasting impressive apprenticeships with 3.1 Philip Lim and Lanvin Homme as well as a collaborative bag collection with Eastpak, Nicomede Talavera is fresh out of college, yet certainly emerging as a designer to watch in 2011. Citing texture, shape and the fabric he works with as his main inspirations, Nicomede’s recent chat with Dazed Digital is a fascinating peek into the life and design philosophy of an ambitious and talented young designer. Claiming that “attention to quality and detail” is the main lesson to be learned from crafting menswear, Nicomede’s first collection showcases 10 pieces representing a combination of nontraditional fabrics, tailoring and patterns with old-school British staples including overcoats, capes, messenger bags and dress shirts.
