Following its tie-dye capsule alongside KITH, Milan-based imprint NemeN has now returned with a bevy of new offerings for Spring/Summer 2020. Highlighted in a new lookbook, the collection continues to spotlight the brand’s tech-heavy garment dyeing expertise.
Retrofitted with evolved dip-dyeing and tie-dyeing techniques, NemeN’s SS20 range continues to improve on some of its most-prized silhouettes. The most eye-catching of the range is an advanced take on the imprint’s Zephyr silhouette, which features a three-layer construction that has been dip-dyed in three unique colorways of gray, blue, or purple. The piece has been constructed from 100% nylon, featuring a Japanese membrane and a polyester backer that has been doused with a water repellent treatment. Another highlight that showcases the brand’s garment dyeing pedigree is the new Twist Smock, which employs a triple tie-dye process in order to create a vibrant, marble-like finish.
This season, NemeN is also introducing the Kate Short Parka as well as the Bates Bomber Jacket. The first is an asymmetrical short parka with double zipper closure, featuring a double hood construction for increased thermal properties, as well as an extended outer hood for wet weather protection. Available in blue and green, the Bates Bomber Jacket is a flip on a classic bomber that’s been garment dyed and pigment overdyed.
Other pieces in NemeN’s SS20 collection include a new take on the Climber Pant using a Taslan textured nylon fabric with Fast-Dry technology, the chino-styled Loose Pant featuring ultra-fine nylon/cotton fabric, and Combat Shorts in a special tie-dye edition. All pants are garment dyed and further given a water repellent treatment. Accessory-wise, NemeN has developed a Dip-Dye Baseball Cap to match the Zephyr jackets, as well as a Mineral Dye Jungle Cap and Ballistic Nylon Jungle Cap that feature metal ventilators. This season also sees a range of collaborative silkscreen printed graphic T-shirts alongside artist and graphic designer Domenico Romeo, which features his characteristic calligraphy graphic style made specifically for NemeN.
