Nana Aganovich and Brooke Taylor brought the drama of the dark side of fashion to the runway with their AGANOVICH READY TO WEAR SPRING SUMMER 2015 collection. It was a witching hour with Japanese inspired cuts and an almost all black collection with red being the other main colour in their collection.

The designers put a spell on us that made us lust for something red in our wardrobes this spring and high neck dramatic collars.
It was letting go of the old to bring in the spring solstice moving forward both literally and metaphorically. Nana Aganovich and Brooke Taylor tackled new ground in their innovative collection of Ready to Wear garments with a heavy influence of the cape. It geared toward the more Bohemian client, more controlled and constrained than ever, this summer collection saw them exploring the semantics of icons. The pair toned it down just a notch with, the almost theatrical obedience of past collections. Yet, don’t fret you can see in our gallery that there was still drama on the runway. The main thing to look for is all the little details that went into the garments. Look closely at the images and you see for yourself.

Backstage after the show, Taylor said hat they wanted to show the relationship between cloth and stone.
We looked at how cloth and drape were caught in stone, and then applied different techniques [of construction] to make rigid layers of fabric look fluid,” he explained. “Behind that, we thought about the infatuation with icons, images, from the religious sense to silver screen sirens, added Aganovich.
What changed here was the balance of textures, and with that, a lightened silhouette with no fussy volumes or cumbersome attachments. So into the woods we go for spring, the opposition drove the collection between fluidity and rigidity. Arrested movement gave us stiff collars and neckline a commanding personality to the garments while handkerchief hemlines and frayed edges kept it stylish with Yohji Yamamoto as the catalyst. The AGANOVICH READY TO WEAR SPRING SUMMER 2015 collection is well thought out and contrived from the first look to last, the designers wanted to make art, a statement and change the way we look at different fabrics. This Spring is all about having something red.
