It’s time “to draw a cleansing breath,” designer Samuel Drira suggested in his program notes for Nehera. To that end, he used a palette of mostly white, cream and beige hues, which worked well with the softly sculpted silhouettes that are becoming a signature of this Slovakian fashion house from the Thirties, relaunched two years ago.
Drira played with curved volumes, lending a sense of elegance and laid-back comfort to trim pants and Asian-inspired judo-style jackets. Layering was also strong — picture breezy, ankle-length skirts with oversize shirts or asymmetrical tank tops and cropped, knitted vests. Only the finale, with a burst of fuchsia and geometric patterns, disturbed this harmonious and peaceful collection.
