Nehera Paris Fashion Week FW18
Represented by David Giroire.
NEHERA Fall 2018 pre-collection is grounded in the connection of divergent traits. A dialogue between control and spontaneity unearths conservative roots as well as primitive instincts. A composed woman keeps her freedom and fierce spirit by folding up a section of her skirt to reveal its silk lining or daring to wear an open back jumpsuit.
In line with Tadao Ando’s architecture, which lets the presence of nature flow past its concrete walls, the fluidity of a dress is outlined by a frame of geometrical piping. A line of pleats, highlighted by thick thread, subtly brings structure to a drape and even a usually straightforward box pleat turns into an asymmetric overlap.

A combination of contrasts may create a symbiosis. Thus, an assortment of tree trunk rings creates a fresh camouflage print that melts into nature. In the same way wrapping oneself in a mysterious hooded coat creates a feeling of serenity. Elsewhere, an irregular check echoes through various fabrications emerging in graphic knits and quilted outerwear.
The earthy colour palette branches from a deep forest green to a light clay beige, illuminated by a lustrous rust and a hint of sky blue. The warmth of the autumnal palette is emphasized by the richness of textures in the collection, from a comfortable corduroy to a relaxed terry striped wool,
and a faux-fur.
Juxtaposing different materials occasionally creates a duality of textures. Thereby, a reversible jacket can be shortened by folding up its hem to reveal a contrasting fabric. More unusual mixtures of fabric emerge in an oversized leather and loden jacket or else a felted wool jacket, combined with a shiny fluid viscose. In addition, an asymmetric jacket can be fastened in a classic way or its closure folded back to create versatility. Finally, NEHERA’s essential men’s shirt for this collection has a double opening and a removable panel giving the impression of two different layers.
The NEHERA woman can focus on both her responsibilities and independence. She has established her confident sense of style almost like an inner world for herself. From this confidence a poetic allure and her unique style naturally emerges. Even her usually polished wood accessories are rerooted in
the beauty of rawness.
