The 2019 Collection by Nani Iro launched in Japan mid February and, I'm excited to say, our stock arrives here in the UK in w/c 22nd April!
Designed by the artist Naomi Ito, for Kokka Fabrics, these designs have a beautifully distinctive painterly quality to them. This Collection sees the return of some favourites from previous seasons which have been re-coloured, alongside several new designs. A carefully edited colour palette ensures all the designs sit together cohesively.
One of our favourite designs, Lei Nani, has been re-coloured, and looks really fresh in Green as pictured below.
The bold abstract painterly stripe design Grace is another design that has been re-coloured this year as has Wild Flower and the large scale floral design Fuccra.
I'm really pleased to see that Tencel has been used for some of the designs in this years's collection, including the beautiful Fuccra on Blue. This fabric is made from wood pulp harvested from tree farms that are sustainably managed and traceable. The fibre production itself is more eco-friendly than cotton production due to its’ closed-loop process. This means that up to 99% of the water and solvents used are recycled and reused.
There are plenty of new designs too including Temps, a subtle colour blocked design overlaid with a delicate botanical design, as shown below.
I think this is her best collection yet... though I think perhaps I say that every season!
The new Collection has now started to arrive.... click here to shop the new fabrics as they arrive.
