Following on from its versatile Fall/Winter 2018 collection, Japanese label nanamica has officially unveiled its Spring/Summer 2019 line-up. The theme for this season’s collection is "NANATORA Alternative Dressing," described as a reworking of traditional ideas of hybrid technical and functional clothing.
For Spring/Summer 2019, nanamica has worked with a traditional marine tricolor, with navy acting as the focal point. The navy, along with other shades of blue in gradient effect, is a reference to the sea’s influence on the collection. Other colors include natural white to beige — a reference to sandy beaches — and bright red as a nod to seaside flags.
This season features three major themes, including an array of technical coats designed for the transitional Spring weather. The second theme — described as the "All-Mighty Setup Suit" — mixes traditional tailoring with technical materials including GORE-TEX and ALPHADRY. For the collection’s third main theme, nanamica has focused on bold color blocked items.
This collection also features the introduction of a new subline called nanamican Graffiti, which fuses graphic design with sportswear. These pieces are designed to be functional athletic wear, while also working alongside nanamica’s mainline collection.
You can expect the full nanamica Spring/Summer 2019 collection to hit retailers including Goodhood and Bodega in the near future. In the meantime, take a look at Martine Rose’s latest Napapijri collaboration.
