Nikicio: Mixté Autumn/Winter 2012

Upon conceiving Nikicio:Mixté, the first and notably the most idealistic of the house, contradictions and individuality were the elements at helm. Subversiveness, on the other hand, is developed through growth. The signatures provide a blank canvas to the collection; tailored jackets and trousers welcome the monochromatic picture titled “Ocean Waves”. Silk blouses adapt the deep, magnetic authority of the print with contradictive lightness, blackened suede vests and studs induce strength. The present state of Nikicio, however, proposes clash. Fall/Winter 2012 marks the collection “War” for the house, which has cemented its androgynous virtues. This season, Nikicio renounces it and consumes herself with femininity. A puristic and almost clinical selection of leather jacket, asymmetrical tank and knits in whites and ivories expound further fragility of the collection. A sense of Venus in Nikicio’s private point of view is now completely revealed. The women are willing to go to war, in defense of stance and romance, but most importantly of existence.
