In real life, the street is one’s runway. That exposure was captured by Slovak collective Nehera’s latest collection, which quietly pushed back against the public power of judgments that often frame women’s dressing as either too sexy or too masculine. Cue big boxy turtlenecks cropped to expose just enough midriff, baggy blazers coordinated in bright colorblocks, or wrap-waist dresses that cinch the form but still leave space around the body.
The brand framed its collection as “mentally friendly and physically enjoyable,” meant for ease of movement in everyday life, while elevating basics with crisp cuts. Jackets were reimagined here, with two convertible standouts — one asymmetric cut that can be disassembled at the back to create a single side piece, and another that can be worn long or buttoned up so the inner lining is exposed for a flash of sheen.
Nehera experimented with textures such as a mottled seersucker on a pleated dress and what the designers called “goo” dotted on poplin then washed to create soft, puckered cotton. The brand collaborated this season with Antwerp-based artist Juraj Straka on a bright floral print.
The collection was an inventive revisit of everyday wear with an air of subversive elegance. And as the digital presentation made clear, these clothes were made for the female gaze.
