N- Duo Co-Creative Directors, Natuka Karkashadze and Anum Bashir introduce their pre-fall ’19 collection. Karkashadze’ editorial experience and romanticist taste crossed with Bashir’s eye for style – evident from her pre-existing social platform, Desert Mannequin, illustrates this design duo’s match made in heaven.
The brands forthcoming collection mirrors the partnership between the two Co- Creative Directors. Built upon strong silhouettes in feminine shades, that celebrate the individuality of the wearer, the duo’s designs represent gender fluidity, whilst embodying a quirky elegance that Bashir and Karkashadze have become renowned for.
Capturing an atmosphere of inclusivity and 80’s nostalgia, N-duo collections, start with shoulders coming to centre stage. Taking modern architecture inspired structured sleeves to new heights, crafted from the delicate, light fabrics to make a dramatic Shakespearean statement, marrying the famous historical poets style to a modern framework.
At the other end of the spectrum, a boy-meets-girl androgynous approach takes hold – a direct lift out of Bashir’s style book – tailored suiting in rich tones embodies clean-cut over-sized shoulder detailing – a signature of the brands modern approach to dressing. N-Duo love to play with the unexpected, they pair silks with hoodies for effortless layering, whilst their next iconic cut – leotard blazers become a future classic – N-Duo stays true to its amalgamation of masculine and feminine tastes.
N-Duo collections are dominated by tailoring, reaffirming the versatility of the beloved category that takes the wearer from day-to-night. The brand presents collections for form and fit whilst every piece retains a connection to the 80s – nostalgic for ensembles reminiscent of shows of the decade. N-Duo explores a sense of the era’s excess from an obsession with work through power-dressing to an exploration of playfulness.
Since 2018, N-duo has been taking steps to decrease its carbon footprint by working exclusively with sustainably sourced fabrics produced via mills in Lyon, France.
