BARBARA I GONGINI _ SUBLINE norðan BY BARBARA I GONGINI
Pronunciation: [ n o r a n ]
From Barbara I Gongini ́s creative well, an echo from the Northern Hemisphere has sprung: a new line evolves from the nourished grounds, carrying the name _ norðan.
Aligned with the clean and untouched nature, the new norðan avant garde collection focuses on a sustainable take on clothing. The foundation of norðan is aligned with the imaginary journey to the North and is therefore based on textures of basalt rocks, mist, soil, seawater, moss, rust and driftwood which is washed ashore. The choice of materials is a reflection of the scent of the North. A tactile exposure to a variety of surfaces. Rough linen, heavy cotton, silk, wool, leather and blends of recycled materials from various fibers are joined in synchronized symbiosis.
Emanating from the earthly color range, the color palette lies within a northern spectrum that mimics nature in all its shades. From the wide fields of heather, over to the muddy puddles, to the pitch-black basalt rocks. A seasonal color is regularly added.
The line is broken down to the essential, where the absence of noise is crucial, thus rich on subtle details. The avant garde line contains a silent reflection of the BARBARA I GONGINI DNA. The product features a contemporary timeless look, which contains trend elements as well as touching on terms like street, sport, rock and tailoring.
In solemn harmony with the natural surroundings. Our story continues.
