Misha Nonoo Pre-Fall 2013

FANCY A CUPPA?
New York: Anna Russell, the Duchess of Bedford, is known as the first to have implemented the English tradition of afternoon tea during the Victorian era. In the press release for her inaugural Pre-Fall collection, Misha Nonoo cited Russell as an influence. Other tea-related elements appeared, as well. Elegant patterns were borrowed from vintage ceramics, British tea canisters inspired gold hardware, and models in the lookbook posed amid broken blue and white teacups. Other influences included the work of interior designer Alex Vervoordt and artist Thilo Heinzmann. Fascinating references aside, the collection was chock full of inspired basics with a handful of showpieces for good measure. Expertly tailored suiting separates and patterned sweaters were juxtaposed with shaggy fur tees and luxe leather dresses. Sheer details added an element of seduction, and the range of cool blues made for a fresh and sophisticated palette. This being only her fifth collection, Nonoo’s work shows promise, and one looks forward to watching her label develop.–Joanna Manganaro
