Nackiyé

YOU’LL BE SORRY IF YOU DON’T GET YOUR­SELF A PIECE OF THIS IS­TAN­BUL-BASED BRAND’S FIRST COL­LEC­TION. HERE’S WHY

Prestige Hong Kong - - AGENDA | STYLE -

There’s been a trend over the past few years in which a slate of de­li­cious, in­de­pen­dent re­sort-wear brands have come to the table. They’ve of­fered us biki­nis, kaf­tans, dresses – the en­tire gamut of el­e­gant, gauzy pieces that usu­ally re­call blue skies, a light breeze and the rush of ocean waves. You’d think that we would all have had enough, but to the con­trary, the brands keep com­ing and we keep lov­ing each one. Re­cently, Nackiyé, a brand that pre­sented its first col­lec­tion, ti­tled The Dode­canese, at Paris Fash­ion Week, caught our eye with its louche kaf­tans – some hooded, some off-the-shoul­der in a pile of slip­pery smooth satin or cot­ton. The founders are sis­ters Basak and Defne Ko­cabiyikoglu, who are Turk­ish and who used their great­grand­mother’s name for their brand. In­spired by the re­laxed el­e­gance and sub­tle se­duc­tion that comes from a cross be­tween ex­quis­ite fabric and a Mediter­ranean-ori­en­tal de­sign, the pair looked to their own sum­mers in sleepy fish­ing towns that would later trans­form into op­u­lent re­sorts where so­cialites and celebri­ties col­lide. The col­lec­tion is de­signed for the mod­ern-day glo­be­trot­ter to pack for sunny es­capes from im­pend­ing win­ter, but the va­ri­ety on of­fer makes it easy to pull off a jump­suit kaf­tan at your lo­cal sum­mer city rooftop party.
