Nuit’s Fall Winter 2016 Les Fleurs du Mal Collection blends blood-red velvets, tattered lace, and aged linens for a descent into the lush world of nighttime.
Recently Nuit released their Fall Winter 2016 Collection titled Les Fleurs du Mal. The new collection explores the world of French poet Charles Baudelaire: romanticism, decadence, and the hidden magic of Fin de Siècle Paris. Designer Anastasia Ikonnikova has crafted a collection that brings a romantic tone to very wearable pieces.
The pieces in this collection have an intimate quality to them. Being inspired by the evening, they are slinky and delicate like lingerie. They bring comfortable loungewear to your everyday wardrobe. These are pieces that allow you to travel around by day in clothing you could curl up fireside with. The Robe Sylphide comes in Parchment Crinkle Cotton and Ancient Linen. This dress gives the impression of a corset without being one. Black straps add a modern element.
The Cap Sleeve Waterfall Dress is a personal favorite. It allows you to wear velvet in a very practical way. Pair with boots and leggings and you’re set in a super comfy but super stylish look.
The Cloak Shawl and the Draped Trousers in Soft Cotton are a perfect men’s fashion combo. These pieces continue with the theme of allowing you to wear comfortable loungeable clothing while still looking sleek and fashionable. Building up and wrapping the shawl makes this look seem more structured than it really is.
So elegant and pretty but so easy and effortless. The combination of the Patchwork Ruffle Cotton and Wool Shawl and Sylphide Camisole in Night Velvet and Lace makes me hope for many holiday gatherings and intimate parties at friend’s houses this year.
The Salome Gown in Oxblood Velvet is taken to a whole other level with the Icelandic Sheepskin Collar. Pair this dress with any bold black accessory and you have a striking look. I could see a lace collar necklace or leather waist cincher working very well.
The neckline of the Margot Stretch Linen Longsleeve Dress is to die for. This dress is understated sexy.
The Paperbag Waist Linen Trousers with Leather Ties could be your new favorite pants. I doubt you’ll even feel like you’re wearing pants.
A cape can be a hard piece to pull of but with the Mythic Hooded Wool Cape in Heather Grey it looks effortless.
