With its clean lines and conceptual silhouettes, this season marked a real departure for Tata Naka, a label best known for its exuberant prints.
“The whole idea was to play with the simplicity of modern architecture,” said Tamara Surguladze, who designs the collection with her identical twin sister, Natasha. The two took some of their inspiration from Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry this season.
Highlights included monochrome structured dresses with undulating necks and hemlines, and other softer ones made from sinuous wisps of silk georgette in the palest mustard with elegant, fluted tiers like Ionic columns. Prints still made an appearance as simple, hand-drawn florals, most interestingly rendered in bonded silk Neoprene on a yellow jacket with a serpentine closure.
