For Misha Nonoo the Guggenheim is an endless source of inspiration. For her Pre-Fall 2014 collection, she drew from the museum’s nautilus shell-inspired ramp to give the clothes a certain curviness. For instance, a banker-striped shirtdress had an hourglass shape and sheer insets at the hem and collarbone. “Every woman has an amazing décolletage,” Nonoo said of the flattering peekaboo placement. Her experience as a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist helped her to really focus the collection.
While her flippy skirts and digital floral prints were quite feminine, her work stands out most when she injects it with a menswear element, whether it’s a strict collar or tailored pants.
