N&S Gaia SS17
N&S Gaia was a new name to us for Fashion Scout this year, an ethical fashion brand promoting the idea that prêt sustainability is sexy. Sustainable fashion used to be dismissed for its lack of appealing aesthetic but N&S Gaia proves just how redundant that opinion now is. A riot of tropical colours graced the catwalk for SS17 – peach and coral, peppermint green and ice blue – crafted into loose, fluid shapes with a distinctly vintage feel. Contrasting prints in black, grey and brown tones were appliquéd on or designed in, paying no heed to hemlines or dimensions, traversing shoulder to knee and morphing from 2 to 3D. Some subtle play with proportion added contemporary twists – we particularly loved the oversize blue coat with dramatic appliqué trailing down the right shoulder.
