Nook Mexico, a platform dedicated especially for Mexican talents, presented its fourth edition on March 20 in Mexico City. The event showcased the 2014 Fall-Winter collections of four designers who define trends on an international level.
Among them is designer Rolando Santana, who continued with his appreciation of all that’s pure and classic. His collection presented two basic tones: black and white. His silhouettes were feminine but he added a rockier twist with embroideries and leather jackets.
He delivered a line designed with an established and determined woman in mind; one who defines sophistication, strength and above all, elegance.
The always impressive Andres Jimenez for Mancandy amazed us with a collection inspired by the “girly meets tomboy” concept. We found details representing different trends, such as the sporty and the oversized accessories.
Francisco Cancino’s pieces for Yakampot were designed for women born with style. The designer achieved the merging of the gap between two different styles. He presented a collection inspired by lady-like feminine silhouettes, and glamorous flare skirts. But he transforms it into a chic and current look by adding denim, leather leggings, oversize silhouettes and mixing layers and textures.
And finally, the designer of the moment, Kris Goyri. His main inspiration was Maria Felix, “La Doña.” His creations take us back to the Mexican cinema’s golden age. Details like raffled collars, puffed sleeves, golden accessories, hats on rose gold tones and red lipstick celebrate the actress’ iconic look. Volume and structure define the silhouettes of his amazing collection.
It’s because of these great national talents that once again, NOOKMX is captivating the attention of the fashion world.
