Spring 2020 marks Creative Director Nicola Glass’s fifth collection for the brand. The season is inspired by a city safari – where every turn, and every wardrobe choice, is an adventure. With timeless safari-inspired silhouettes reimagined in ultra-feminine fabrics, prints and colors, our girl is ready for her next big adventure. Nicola continues to focus on the brand codes she established in 2019 – always keeping the brand’s core DNA in mind and staying true to the brand promise of Optimistic Femininity.
“My starting point for this season was imagining everything a woman would need for her next big adventure – even if that adventure is right outside her door. I wanted to find the balance between functionality and style, using luxe fabrics but in relaxed silhouettes, and cross-body handbags in unique materials and whimisical shapes.” said Nicola Glass. “I love how no two women ever wear the same thing the same way. This season is an homage to that: To blossoming wherever you’re planted.”
The Spring 2020 show was held at Elizabeth Street Garden, a community sculpture garden in Nolita. In a conscious effort to help preserve the naturally beautiful garden, which has been in danger of being taken over by developers, 100% of the venue rental fee was given directly to the protection of the garden for the local community and general public to enjoy. Guests were seated in the open air on existing benches within the park, as well as café tables and chairs that will be recycled for events around the world. Models walked down the park’s gravel pathway and wove throughout the sculptures and foliage to highlight the existing beauty of the space itself. As a special treat, the show notes were printed on seed paper, allowing guests to plant them following the show.
