We always play the inspiration guessing game upon seeing a brand new collection. Was it inspired by an exotic location? Was it the designer’s love for a particular era and icon? When it comes to Tata Naka Fall 2015, we’ve solved the mystery: famous board games like Cluedo and classic whodunit films like Murder by Death.
The result? Embellishment comes in the form of gold-threaded appliqués in the shape of Cluedo weapons like revolvers and candlesticks on wool, silk and vintage net. It’s a very kitsch touch and a perfect example of the brand’s humorous approach to designing.
Prints are also key to the collection as patterns resemble the Asian feel of Peter Sellers’ iconic inspector Sidney Wang across a vibrant palette of rich plum, bright corals and turquoise. In contrast to portraits created by the designers behind the classic Cluedo characters.
