"ATLANTIS SPRING/SUMMER 2020 COLLECTION": DE MODE GLOBAL

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN DE MODE | 2020 BIG FASHION ISSUE

Article Published on: 21 FEB 2023 | www.demodemagazine.com


The idea of Atlantis — the “lost” island subcontinent often idealized as an advanced, utopian society holding wisdom that could bring world peace — has captivated dreamers, occultists, and New Agers for generations. Ziad Nakad imagines, for his Spring Summer 2020 Couture collection, the Modern Day Warrior Princess. The celebration of fierceness, softness, determination, ingenuity, and compassion that makes up the Modern Day Warrior Princess is electric and eclectic: tulle, silk, and taffeta mixed with organza and chiffon emphasize the mermaid silhouettes.

The Modern Day Warrior Princesses, have been able to play to the strength of being female, to celebrate their femininity, not to shy away from it or downplay it: crystals, beads, feathers, all handmade details, are underlining all shades of blue, and water green, sun yellow, peach and gold. A hymn to sensuality, as fluid as the sea and as bright as the sun.
