From Feb 23 – 25, 2014 at Studio 320, (320 West 37th St 14th Floor).
Many of the details found in AW14 were inspired by gardens, flowers and bees and also by the movie, “The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart”. The film is about 23 year old Columbia University dropout (Stanley Sweetheart) who seeks his identity during the sexual revolution. The “Magic Garden” refers to the place in his mind that he somehow finds solace and peace through his imagination and daydreams.
“Hand sewn metal bee buttons and leavers edge lace will accent your body as effortlessly as petals to a flower.” — Melissa Franchi, Nevaeh.
The film’s counter-culture era is mirrored in the collection’s subtle psychedelic floral prints and creative campaign shoot. Nevaeh offers a variety of styles for AW14 with metal bee button details, Leavers edge lace, metal hardware and plush elastics and beautiful sheer mesh honeycomb-like pattern on some of the pieces. Two color way options are available: Golden Honey mixed with Eternal Dusk (black) and Moonlight Garden mixed with Twilight Blue.
