Nicolas Andreas Taralis swapped catwalk for digital screen to present his pristine spring collection. “It’s a little voilé, but I needed new energy,” he explained before mingling with the crowd that turned out at the pitch-dark screening room to watch the video. “I feel like I’m in a transitional period, which is reflected in the collection.”
Taking cues from artist Gordon Matta-Clark, Taralis cut and recut pieces to produce an elegant city wardrobe kept sober in white and black. At the fore were hybrids, such as a dress that married pants, skirt and open-back top, all seemingly cut from one piece.
Overall, the collection felt lighter and more straightforward than in previous seasons.
