I came across Talavera recently on fashion156 and was instantly attracted to his neon foil tshirt in their recent editorial. Very Proenza Schouler/Katie Eary with that bold colour that we’re all so into at the moment.
He is a Central Saint Martins BA student, currently on his placement year in New York. Doing my research, he has already appeared on The Fashionisto, Dazed Digital and countless blogs, and he’s only in his 2nd year!
This collection above was inspired by fusing elements of the neanderthal and the gentleman. This definately comes across in the incredible range of materials and textures that attract me to this collection, as well as the cut and killer accessories.
There is definate raw talent here, I can’t wait to see what influences he brings back from his internships.
Be on the look out for Nicomede Talavera‘s graduate collection in 2011.
