ZIAD NAKAD Haute Couture SS2020 "Atlantis" Collection
The idea of Atlantis - the "lost" island subcontinent often idealized as an advanced, utopian society holding wisdom that could bring world peace has captivated dreamers, occultists and New Agers for generations.
For his SS2020 Couture collection, Ziad Nakad imagines the Modern Day Warrior Princesse.
The inspiration is the celebration of fierceness, softness, determination, ingenuity and compassion.
The Atlantis inspired him to make up the Modern Day Warrior Princess which is electric and eclectic.
Tulle, silk and taffeta mixed with organza and chiffon emphasize the mermaid silhouettes.
The Modern Day Warrior Princesses have been able to play to the strength of being female, to celebrate their femininity, not to shy away from it or downplay it.
Crystals, beads, feathers, all handmade details, are underlining all shades of blue, water green, sun yellow, peach and gold.
A hymn to sensuality, as fluid as the sea and as bright as the sun.
