Built on water-repellent fabrics, the Wanda Nylon brand has been slowly growing into a complete collection. For fall, designers Peter Hornstein and Johanna Senyk were right on trend with the Sixties sportswear flavor that’s been on many Parisian runways this season, showing graphic ski sweaters and accessories done in a mix of knit and color-blocked quilted nylon.
Innovative fabrics included a new black vinyl. Not sticky and instead supple to the touch, it was used on a range of classics such as A-line skirts, pants and capes; a flashy gold-orange metallic foil bonded to cotton was worked on bold futuristic looks, including parkas and matching pants.
More everyday pieces like sweatshirts and padded coats were done in a water-repellent, ultrasoft jersey with a faux suede matte finish. With this collection, Hornstein and Senyk showed that they’re finding a good balance between fashion and commercial.
