What's new on the spring/summer 2013 Nicolas Andreas Taralis runway? “Not much,” as the designer cheekily confirms it himself. “It is all about working on continuity. It's a natural evolution, it comes spontaneously,” continues Taralis. It is precisely this continuous approach that formed his strong signature style.

“As you can see, I don't use that much color,” smiles the designer backstage after his show. Indeed, eye-popping colorings don't match with the Taralis philosophy, which is all about soothing serenity and androgynous cuts. Charcoal, off-white, shades of grey and a few hints of shimmery silver therefore perfectly fit the bill.

Rigid, asymmetrical tuxedos matched with floaty, silk harem pants, as Taralis is all about fluid yet deconstructed tailoring. Strict shirt dresses were embellished with numerous drapings, while floor-length gowns revealed delicate layers. Boxy tops came with asymmetrical zippers that allow more volume on the bodice and peaked shoulders provided a strong silhouette. This constant play between clean cuts and rough shapes come along with a somewhat grungy model styling and tousled hair.

Lately Taralis designed a capsule collection for Bruno Pieters' new clothing line “Honest By,” that is just as desirable as his runway collection – the difference? Taralis used 100% sustainable fabrics to work on the pieces. “Sustainability is a rather difficult topic,” states the designer. “It is not as easy as it should be, we're not responsible enough. The problem lies already in the production of fabrics themselves and then comes the polluting supply chain...the collection for Honest By was a good experience, but there is still a lot to be done regarding sustainability in fashion.”
