Nanushka's Resort 2022 Collection Is an Ode to '60s Art Movement, Arte Povera
The label also introduces its first beachwear range.
For Nanushka’s Resort 2022 collection, creative director Sandra Sandor has chosen to explore the “unconventional materials” associated with the ’60s Italian art movement dubbed Arte Povera, which translates to “Poor Art.”
“I considered how the artistic potential of a piece of clothing could be redefined by using a varied range of materials to challenge the creative capacity of design,” Sandor shared in a press release. “‘Material Forms’ is built around a subversive yet elevated use of everyday elements, manifested through craft and hand technique. Responsible values are always at the heart of Nanushka,” she added.
Full of texture and tactility, the women’s and men’s lines boast striking colorways and patterns on modern silhouettes. Standouts include the vegan leather and slip satin separates, as well as the dress sleeves, jackets and shirts featuring accordion pleats influenced by the Transylvanian national costume. Comfortable garments such as shirts and pants are crafted from cotton percale, while 3D slip tops are made out of dribble ribbon, Nanushka’s exclusive fabric.
Elsewhere, sandals, boots, clutches and tote bags boast puffy uppers, elongated shapes, material blocking and straw material. The collection additionally debuts Nanushka’s first beachwear range consisting of swimsuits, kaftans, pareos, shorts, shirts and beach towels.
