NELLY RODI - S/S 2015
Borders abolished, balance redefined, talents emerge from everywhere: this season's new style making is a happening. Taking a step back from our habits and our all too familiar everyday lives, we set sail for new adventures, far from our usual territories, the other end of the world if necessary. The city is moving to the beach (and vice-versa), emerging nations are turning into the new leaders, the ocean's depths are becoming like a second home. We desire to uproot and leave everything behind, to discover who we really are - at antipodes (opposite) to our routine life.

THE SPEED AND MOVEMENT OF COLOR FOR S/S 2015
With the market moving at different speeds, for S/S 2015, we enter into a realm of vintage and modern, where our color stories turn mid-toned, shades blur and merge, brights are less obvious and classic shades are balanced by some more unusual hues. All the while light effects act to energize and animate.
