AW17 Preview: N&S Gaia

Posted on

N&S Gaia SS17

N&S Gaia was by far one of the most colourful and organic collections on the SS17 Fashion Scout catwalk. The New Delhi based label – the work of Sidharth Sinha – takes its cues from the natural world and the energy within it. For AW17 this translates into an exploration of the transformation of existence, with inspiration drawn from nature photography and ideas about the goddess Gaia.

So, what can you expect from the upcoming show? The elegant fluidity of liquid silks, nature-inspired prints and sweeping hems has produced a dramatic collection with plenty of movement. Driving ideas of nature as a starting point, and humanity in the transformational role, give depth to the collection’s inspiration. So often humanity is depicted as the creator of a tech-filled future, in the hybrid world of N&S Gaia it is far more harmonious.

The signature wide leg silhouettes we saw for SS17 reappear this season, matched with bold sleeves, while the AW17 colour palette could have jumped straight from an Edward Hopper print. Asymmetric lines and raw edges introduce elements of alternative perspective, while impeccably detailed embroidery and Dakmanda (a hand woven embroidery technique from the Garo tribe in Northern India) juxtapose and blend the natural with the man made.

Commitment to sustainability and the use of upcycled fabrics are an important part of the N&S Gaia platform – N&S stands for Nature and Sustainability, after all. What we love about this label is that sustainability isn’t preached but celebrated – it can be a beautiful thing, in the natural world and on the catwalk.

N&S Gaia AW17 will be shown on 17th February at London Fashion Scout.
