Neith Nyer Spring/Summer 2019 collection is a tribute to Paris as a place of both hope and despair, told through the lens of a pageant queen trying to make her way to the top. Francisco Terra had in mind this girl full of dreams but yet marginal, a spooky gothic kid from Bastille that dreams to be Miss France. And will work hard to make her way to her dream.
The key elements of this season are pulled directly from wardrobes of aspiring beauty queens: crowns and bathing suits, sparkles, child-like mini skirts, and a palette of pink and turquoise. These naïve features are perverted using radical cuts and re-stitching, bleached fabrics and extravagant details. Jeweller Florence Tetier’s earrings are seashell-like creatures born of melted shiny plastic; the open-toe pumps designed in collaboration with Zeferino in Brazil deliberately have a longer, exaggerated sole.
“I wanted to create the narrative of a person who is fighting to succeed because everyone can relate to it”, explains Francisco Terra, the creative director of the label. “By distorting the peaceful imagery of beauty queens, I want to make clothes for people with thick skin.”
