Nonoo Recreates a Seaside View with Resort 2015

By Codi Mohr

June 24, 2014

The striking beauty of an oceanside view can be breathtaking. Inspired by such a sight, Nonoo’s resort 2015 collection brought oceanic references of splashing waves to the office with structured basics made for the professional woman’s softer side.

Taking the concept of the Misha Nonoo woman — “the multifaceted professional who is not confined to a power suit” — and applying the influence of artists Robert Motherwell and Wade Guyton, the designer explored femininity in silhouette and form.

One of the most visually complex pieces in the collection, a knee-length, collared dress featuring a paint-splatter print, references Motherwell’s “Beside the Sea” series. Motherwell found himself inspired by the “beauty, the force, and the grace” of the sea splashing above the seawall, and he created paintings in a style referencing that imagery. Nonoo’s collection incorporated Motherwell’s splattering technique with fine horsehair to create a wavelike effect in her structured skirts.

Guyton’s artwork features paintings and sculptures created through unconventional media (digital inkjet printers and scanners), allowing him to experiment with shifted lines and transparency. From his pieces, Nonoo adapted his lines into chevron prints and uneven striped patterns and layered sheer inserts under longer hemlines and knitwear.

Layered transparencies of mint, deep blue, and soft gray hues on satins and knits gave the collection a soft, feminine touch and invoked the timeless allure of Nonoo collections.
