Dubbed “Teleport,” Nanushka’s Pre-Fall 2021 collection is described by creative director Sandra Sandor as “a truly creative collection.” It’s hard to argue otherwise when presented with the spread of lush prints and aggressively attractive textiles, offered in relaxed cuts equally ideal for quarantine lounging and outdoor adventuring.
Building off the retro silhouettes presented for Spring/Summer 2021, Nanushka has prepped another offering of slouchy cuts and standout graphic accents, the latter inspired by Surrealist art. Though they aren’t as dreamlike as, say, Salvador Dali’s work, the resulting patterns are gently colorful, gracing cardigans, shirts and slacks with illustrative flowers and geometric shapes. Elsewhere, boxy suits mingle with shirts and trousers cut from Nanushka’s signature vegan leather, yielding a sturdy contrast to its logo-laden sweatshirts.
“This collection remains fully grounded in functionality, and to a degree utility,” Sandor continues in a statement. “We’re exploring surprising opposites, upending or reimagining fabric techniques, or contrasting elements of light and dark, shape and form. … That is where we headed, looking at the relationship between form and organic shapes and how we tap into their qualities in our collection direction.”
