TALAVERA TAKES A BREAK: Nicomede Talavera is putting his brand on hold immediately. He will not be showing or selling a spring 2016 collection, nor will his fall 2015 collection be available for retail.
“Due to personal circumstances, I have taken the decision to not show a collection for SS16 [spring 2016] and to take time to now decide how to channel my creativity going forward,” the designer said in a statement Friday.
“I am extremely grateful for all of the support and belief over the last few years and for everybody who has been part of this journey. It has been an incredible experience and learning process,” he added.
Talavera graduated from the master’s of arts fashion course at Central Saint Martins in 2013, and founded his label soon after. His stockists include Dover Street Market, Joyce, Opening Ceremony, LN-CC, Space Mue and Machine-A.
He has received support from Topman’s Man showcase, and taken part in the Fashion East collective presentations during London Collections: Men. Earlier this year, he was the recipient of sponsorship and mentoring from the Center for Fashion Enterprise in London.
