Collection – NIMBUS AW.17

NIMBUS AW.17
by ALEXIA RAISI

nimbus (’nımbәs) n, pl -bi (-baı) or -buses
1. a dark grey rain-bearing cloud
2. an emanation of light surrounding a saint or deity
3. a surrounding aura or atmosphere
[from Latin: cloud, radiance]

The Nimbus collection is inspired by the various cloud formations, their own colors as well as their effect in light or darkness, the voluminous softness & lightness and the linear severity and distortion of rain.
Basic shapes transform with exagerated volumes or lengths, multiple weights in fabrics combine with a muted palette to create the sombre mood of a rainy day.
