New Denim Talent: Tamina Navaei

We recently came across this piece by I-D Online on hot new design talent, Tamina Navaei. Tamina graduated from Middlesex University  in the U.K. this summer and her collection caught our eye for its fabulous use of color (muted and layered berry tones with vegetal and indigo bleached effects) and the amazing layering of silhouettes and textures, see images below:

She says of her collection:

“I design for the girl who looks as though she’s more likely to steal your purse than your boyfriend. She couldn’t care less whether you think she is pretty or sexy, her clothes are her armour.”

The I-D piece goes on to ask Tamina about her research (photographers Wolfgang TillmansJuergen Teller, Jim Goldberg and Larry Clark and films  KidsKen Park and My Own Private Idaho.) And most inspirational labels (Raf Simons, Christopher Shannon and Rodarte.

We also love the amazing black and white photographs by Christina Smith, styled by up-and-coming London stylist and college friend of Tamina’s, Paul Joyce . They really emphasize her combination of washes and textures.

The girl’s certainly got an eye for color and a good grasp of 90s culture and styling! We love.
