Childhood is familiar from the works of Spanish Moises The place for Nieto, especially in his latest collection La Siesta. “When you wake up after get off work, I want to go back to those summer naps I slept in as a kid, so lazy and oversleeping,” said the designer. This starting point produced dresses, skirts and tops decorated with folds and wrinkles, as well as cushions that gave shape to bags and even prints. “The whole idea came from a piece of old printing paper I saw at a Mexico City flea market. I fell in love with that print and it inspired the prints that adorn my designs now,” recalls Nieto. He added a new pajama set this season. Lightweight, effortless clothing for everyday and special occasions.
As for the palette, the colors become washed out and relaxed, although Nieto also uses more vibrant colors with blue or yellow strokes. “For me, yellow is the sun, it’s summer, so I don’t want to leave it out.” In accessories, he brings back some of the brand’s previous successes, such as his canvas bags and chunky necklaces.
