The NARCISS (http://www.shopnarciss.com) Spring/Summer 2013 collection was all about Baltic mythology and folklore, interpreted progressively rather than sentimentally. Now, the attentions of the world’s most sophisticated fashionistas turn to the preview of the Fall/Winter 2013/14 collection of the renowned online fashion boutique.
The NARCISS Fall/Winter 2013 ready-to-wear collection is sure to reflect more of the “humble luxury” and resistance to the mere latest trend de jour that have become trademarks of the creations of London fashion designer and boutique founder, Alise Trautmane. This time, however, her designs truly play on the conflicts between the concepts of fairy tale and dark drama.
What that means is that one can expect a collection replete with contrasting fabrics, a great level of attention to edgy details, exquisite craftsmanship and the selection of some of the finest natural fabrics across items ranging from womens designer jackets to silk dresses. Many of these features are recurrent across every NARCISS collection to date, but combinations like rough wool, delicate silks and sleek leather, or sheer and lightweight as well as heavy fabrics, are new and distinctive to this collection.
Initial presentations of the collection took place in Paris at the WHO’S NEXT exhibition in January, with further presentations featuring at TRANOI from 1-4 March. It is at such events that many questions are likely to be asked of the legions of NARCISS admirers across the world, based around exploring and fantasising about the pursuit of beauty. Is, for example, the beauty ethereal, pure and fragile or can it also be understated, villainous and dark?
None of this, however, addresses the best feature of all of the most recent offerings of this vaunted luxury fashion boutique: that this timeless glamour is also truly an affordable luxury. Find out more at the NARCISS website: http://www.shopnarciss.com.
