Inspired by the potential for a borderless future, Nicopanda deconstructs sportswear classics for Spring/Summer 2017 to create an active collection reflective of our Nicopanda Nation, where non-linear ways of thinking are embraced to promote positive change. This is our wardrobe for a new generation that seeks the demise of traditional thinking and empowers the rise of youth culture—we don’t talk about the change we want, we make it happen.
“There is so much negativity in the world, right now,” said Nicola Formichetti. “We wanted to create an optimistic movement that starts with the clothes, and makes a strong statement without using any words, at all.”
The collection features Nicopanda classics, like bombers, hoodies and ruffled dresses, reworked with updated colors—yellow, red and green—in soft, washed fabrications. Denim pieces reflect timeless Americana silhouettes with rough, frayed edges and snap closures; rugby stripes are revisited as an iconic sportswear staple, reclaimed here on polos, dresses and oversized coats; sleeves are elongated for ease and fly suits designed as workwear for building our Utopia.
