In the evocative location of the garden of the Carnevalet Museum in Paris on June 26th, the brand presented the Men’s SS 24 collection.
“Courage never goes out of style” WM Thackeray
A world where justice and equality are reality. The courage never to lose hope, together with the profound act of rebellion that shakes consciences and becomes, once again, a manifesto. A light in the forest to follow to believe again, always.
The man of St Nian Paris is like this: he proceeds along a path that, ideally, illuminates and shows the way. His manner is firm and carries the transposed echoes of a rebellious but spectacular nature, with 50s rock accents that from the American coast, are now to be found in the heart of Paris. It is the memory of a revived Elvis that shines in the precious taste for embroidery that runs through all the items in the collection, among trees and nightingales, roses and flower buds.
This is how even the tuxedo with embroidered trousers up to the hem is a tribute to a Hollywood that is no longer there and accompanies the man St. Nian Paris from red carpet to life: because you can be elegant and unconventional even in everyday life. But the bomber jacket also has decorations on the back, of course, and is worn with sharp trousers or, for a Beverly Hills touch, with shorts. Beneath, tailored and soft shirts peep out.
And yet the delicate texture of viscose, silk and silk crepe, does not forego touches of polyester and leather and the taste for the unusual that finds in feathers its perfect expression. The palette is a tribute to nature with soft shades of beige, champagne and white, but there are also accents of blue, lemon green and, of course, black and an unusual ketchup red.
The show took place at the garden of the Musee Carnavalet in Paris, with models walking among the public as if they were taking a walk. The soundtrack of the show was conceived and curated by the designer.
Nihan Buruk, the designer of St Nian Paris, has chosen fashion for passion but also to give voice to a precise social commitment that is reflected, season after season, in collections that respect the fragility of women and that invite more and more awareness. Born in Istanbul in 1983, after her studies in “Fashion and Textile Design” at the Yeditepe University of the city, the designer created her stNian Paris brand whose aesthetic has always been accompanied by a precise ethical vision. A recognisable style and no gender, attention to design and trends together with the care of materials is combined with a deep sensitivity for the social, cultural and environmental fields. Fashion becomes an all-round project in which to rediscover those values that the designer has always pursued: from the right to water to the fight against violence against women with messages that become actions.
