Coming Soon ∙ Nani Iro 2022 Collection
The first phase of the much anticipated 2022 Collection by Nani Iro has now launched in Japan and I'm thrilled to share that our first delivery, which is now on its way, will be with us early in March.
Designed by Japanese artist Naomi Ito for Kokka Fabrics under the brand name Nani Iro, these designs have a beautifully distinctive painterly quality to them.
As we've come to expect this Collection sees the return of some favourites from previous seasons which have been re-coloured, alongside several new designs. A carefully curated colour palette ensures all the designs sit together cohesively as a collection.
New for 2022 is the beautiful large scale floral design called "As it Is" inspired by nature and looking at the different seasons and images to create one scenery. The image above shows this statement design printed on linen, there are a total of nine colourways for this design, four on linen and five on double gauze.
Another new design "Islands" has a lovely energy and hand painted quality, this modern painterly design takes striped fabrics to a whole new level.
There are several other new designs, too many to mention here, however they all sit beautifully with the re-coloured designs that will be familiar to many of you. Several designs have been re-coloured and re-imagined. Above you can see "Fuccra" and "Lei Nani" recoloured and sitting alongside new design "Good Sign" on the right of the photo. The floral design "New Morning" which was new for 2021, has been re-coloured as part of the 2022 Collection and looks very contemporary in the dark blue base with tonal blues and purples above.
There are two other designs re-coloured in a variety of colourways for this year and they are Birds Eye and Pocho.
All of these beautiful designs sit together perfectly to create a cohesive collection.
