Niro Wang autumn/winter 2016 collection catwalk show for LFW
Trähäst is the name of Niro Wang’s autumn/winter collection, a Swedish word – it translates into “wooden horse”. A fairly simple concept, the clothes were folksy and made with a lot of natural fabrics.
Linen, wool, jacquard. The finery came in the details; prints and embroidery. The shapes remained quite basic, along with a neutral colour palette. There were culottes, boxy tops, sweatshirts. All sporting horse motifs of some variety.
Towards the end of the collection, with the dressier pieces, is when Niro became a little more adventurous with his silhouettes. A grey linen dress with puffed long sleeves, a peter pan collar and a ruffled fit and flare skirt. A sheer white high-neck midi dress, embroidered with intricate unrecognisable shapes embroidered in the under-layers stole the show, and was the real strong piece of the collection.
