In the exclusive location of Galerie Bourbon, the St Nian Paris brand presented its Fall Winter 2023/24 collection on 27 February.
“When writing about women, one must dip one’s pen in the rainbow and wipe the page dry with the dust of butterfly wings” Denis Diderot.
Strong and fragile women like butterflies who unfurl their colourful, delicate but also powerful wings and leave their mark on what they touch: these are the creatures that Nihan Buruk, soul of St Nian Paris, has imagined for his Fall Winter 2023/24. The message is clear: fashion follows women and their needs, creates beauty in diversity and exalts that free and powerful femininity that characterises them and whose trace remains.
Always. And she uses, for next season, garments inspired by the 1920s, in the textures as in the lines: as light and impalpable as wings, embellished with glass bead embroidery and light plays of crystals and rhinestones, whose motifs ideally reinterpret that magic dust that allows butterflies a harmonious flight.
The apparent feminine fragility is belied by the effects of their wing beats that leave traces of their passage in the fabrics and patterns they wear with irony and lightness.
That can be seen and touched in the soft silhouettes that caress the body and reveal it; in the precise lines of sensual dresses; in the perfect play of proportions that becomes a statement.
Nihan Buruk has chosen to make fashion out of passion but also to give voice to a precise social commitment that is reflected, season after season, in collections that respect the fragility of women and invite ever greater awareness.
The designer, born in Istanbul in 1983, after studying “Fashion and Textile Design” at the city’s Yeditepe University, created her brand StNian whose aesthetic has always been accompanied by a precise ethical vision. A recognisable, gender-neutral style, attentive to design and trends together with care for materials is combined with a deep sensitivity deployed in social, cultural and environmental issues.
Fashion becomes an all-round project in which to find those values that the designer has always pursued: from the right to water to the fight against violence against women with messages that become actions.
