Venturing Into Nature’s Aesthetics in the Heart of Soho
This season, Natasha Zinko takes fashion enthusiasts on a wilderness journey. Her collection, aptly named “Decamp,” pays tribute to the nomadic spirit and the allure of outdoor adventures. Set against the lush backdrop of London’s Soho Square, the ambiance was palpable.
Throughout the runway, one could witness oversized, rugged trousers crafted from vintage jumpsuits. Digitally printed motifs of tree trunks and mud splatters adorned coats, with some even showcasing a wood-like texture punctuated by tree patterns.
Venturing further into the collection, lingerie-inspired ensembles were reimagined in heavy stretch cotton. Shorts and jumpsuits featuring buttoned-back detailing evolved from classic pants. Meanwhile, meticulously crafted Italian leather bags draped across models’ chests, signaling Zinko’s attention to detail.
However, the showstopper had to be the midi party dress crafted from custom, water-resistant material – reminiscent of parachute tech. This skirt morphed into an oversized hood, a nod to the iconic Miss Kalash print, highlighting the versatility and ingenuity of Zinko’s designs.
