Paris Haute Couture: Ziad Nakad Pays Tribute To A Goddess In His SS18 Collection

Ziad Nakad Honors the Goddess of Wheat and Mother of the Earth

 

“I am Demeter, revered by all, the power most useful for gods and men,”

 

For his Spring Summer 2018 collection, Ziad Nakad decided to celebrate Demeter, the Goddess of Wheat and Mother of the Earth. Goddess who gathers the fruits of the earth and offers them to humanity. It is particularly flourishing in the countries where this wheat is found in abundance, in Sicily, in the region of Eleusis, in Crete, in Thrace, and in the Peloponnese.

Like a bird flying over the harvests, perfectly free, crossing a colorful sky, resplendent and singularly geometric: the pale blue of the firmament mixes with the yellow and gold of the wheat, the green of the earth, the coral of the ocean and the  bronze trees at sunset. Wheat ears dot the dresses, a tribute to the most iconic representation of the goddess Demeter. Dress after dress, Ziad Nakad plays a subtle game that celebrates life in a precise mastered know-how and silk embroidery sublimated tulle.

Ziad Nakad created this collection for a strong woman, assumed, voluntary but also and especially generous, inspired by one of the most favorable deities to humans, as a symbol of accomplishment and peace.
