Nikicio Mixte le printemps 2012

Nikicio Mixte le printemps 2012

Showed at The Goods Dept. earlier this month, Nina Nikicio's latest creation has become the favourite and created buzz among the regular customers, bloggers, and fashionista alike.

 Being the 7th collection of the Mixté, the main prêt-a-porter line,  it is inspired by the whole subculture of skateboarders- the vibe, movement, and the attitude itself, and Trompe-l'œil -the art technique involving imagery creating optical illusion which makes flat object looks three dimensional.

Those inspirations gave birth to Nina very own version of the Norwegian knit, which is scanned and digital-printed on silk; giving the juxtapose of something heavy printed on a light, luxurious fabric. Such an interesting way to interpret Trompe-l'œil for fabric manipulation in fashion. The print is then used in pajamas, jacket, and scarf.

The collections are made of fabrics such as modal jerseys, soft baby goat and lamb leather, fine knitted cotton and wool, and also manipulated fabric of hand washed chambray and bleached denim. The main colour theme is monochromatic range as usual.

This time, Nikicio teamed up with Kandura ceramic to create something different which is porcelain beads made of bone china with transparent glaze for the outerwears and accesories like seen in above picture. It adds one of a kind three dimensional embellishment on the piece.

Although i missed the show in Jakarta, but I am still anticipating to get my hands on the latest collection. I hope Blackmarket SG will stock it soon! What i'm eyeing the most is the maxi skirt above and the shorts on the first picture, they will be awesome to be worn to events or styled down for a simple polished look.

Nikico collection can be purchased on the website here
