NOMIA Spring Summer 2017

Utilitarian Minamilism


New York based designer and Oberlin graduate Yara Flinn established her brand NOMIA in 2007 focusing on minimalistic and modern womenswear with a distinct sense of utility. Named after the Greek mermaid, Flinn’s designs embody the nymph’s idiosyncrasies in harmony with her own urban-inflected femininity. Crafted from unconventional fabrics, NOMIA constructs sophisticated garments that balance elements of men’s tailoring with eveningwear. Effortless asymmetric silhouettes, refined architectural cuts and elegant details sit alongside utilitarian pieces with an effortless aesthetic.

Often embracing sportswear elements, SS17 took to the cliffs for their rock-climbing inspired collection. Maintaining their signature elegant aesthetic, utility pieces receive luxe fabrications and refined details; halter jumpsuits in fine wools, cargo pants with silver snaps, zipped pocket skirts with asymmetric wraps and boxy dresses with mesh hems. Peekaboo cut-outs on ribbed knit t-shirts and high-cut slits on one-shouldered dresses add a sense of allure to the active-inspired collection.
