Naya Rea AW16
We discovered Naya Rea for AW16 and since then it has been a slow story of falling in love. The designer has sought to create a label that captures both the beauty and the strength of being female. Delicate appliqué drew us into that first AW16 collection and classic girly cuts in sheer fabrics that were all sorts of adult. If you didn’t think you could wear a pink dress over the age of 8 then Naya Rea will show you otherwise.
Feminity is the same varied and complex concept that it is in real life in the aesthetic of this designer. Ruffles and 3D textures combine with clean cut cosmopolitan style. Pieces are created in totally touchable fabrics, from latex to silk, and the style embraces a broad selection of colours, from bold hues to dusky shades.
Naya Rea SS17
Sometimes we look at fashion and wonder how anyone could have imagined a real woman wearing it. What’s startling about Naya Rea is that there’s nothing simple or pedestrian about the designs but you find yourself wanting to wear every one.
