Nicolas Andreas Taralis is a Canadian-born designer / he studied at Parsons and then in Vienna under Helmut Lang / he worked for Dior Hommes and Cerruti / Taralis launched his own label in 2003 / currently, he’s showing his collections in Paris… and I think he’s one of the best new designers.
Taralis’ world is something special, it’s both about sobriety and about romance. Remember the monk inspiration haircut and the Adso (of Melk) – styled look from a past collection? Or the bloody shirts that he designed for Fall 2011? The designer adores black suits & white shirts, adores leather, sheer, jersey and denim, and loves to work them out & give them a twist. Here are some looks from Nicolas Andreas Taralis S/S 2011 collection. I love the cuts, the layering and all those beautiful hems.
