Strip it back

Nensi Dojaka SS24 took us to the 90s and 00s

In the press release for Nensi Dojaka’s SS24 collection, the LVMH Prize recipient claims to be stripping things back to the essentials. In a collection that felt like the most high-fashion interpretation of the y2k trend yet, there was, naturally, a focus on lingerie (something that has become Dojaka’s signature) paired with figure-hugging sporty pieces and crisp tailoring.

This season sees a focus on colour blocking: the palette is black, white, and neutral, punctuated with petal pink accessories, and blue denim. Textural elements are explored through the contrast of wet-look satin and sequins, which meet with matte viscose, finely knitted into a sheer finish.

Low slung jeans and sharp, high-waisted wool trousers are layered with delicate tulle leggings, finished with hand-pleated godets. Movement is created through the use of lightweight jersey mixed with delicately pleated georgette godets, seen in flared sleeves and dresses that unfold like petals.

Introduced for SS24 is a jacket-inspired mini dress, with multi-functional button detailing that can be fastened or unfastened as desired. A bra strap and ring motif ties the collection together. The straps are carried through into footwear, creating a sense of sculptural harmony with geometric stiletto heels and mesh sandals with tendril-like fastenings.
