Collection – FALL - WINTER 2017-18 CAMPAIGN

The starting point for ELIRAN NARGASSI's FW2017/18 collection is the marvel & simplicity of the human anatomy. Tracing the contours of the Human body, turning it into graphic lines symmetrically following the body, along the clavicle, the shoulders, following the arms and down to the legs, while keeping emphasis on the body's center. The tracing assignment is done using the classic inner finishes such as contrast satin bindings, commonly used in traditional tailoring, but using them on the exterior of the garment. The FW2017/18 collection features mostly natural fabrics such as Cotton, Wool and Silk in a Color palette of Black, White, Navy & Light Gray tones. ELIRAN NARGASSI's designs range from Avant-garde to semi-tailored commercial Menswear while striving to create a wearable garment with a personal statement. The brand's distinctive handwriting, is one which is not influenced by seasonal trends but singularly by Nargassi's inner world and inspirations.
