On Tuesday 19th, The National Portrait Gallery welcomed another art form to stand alongside their historical collection.
Tata Naka designers, Tamara and Natasha Surguladze, presented their vintage-inspired SS18 womenswear collection on the third floor of The National Portrait Gallery; a presentation which sat easily amongst the grandeur of its setting.
The Tata Naka SS18 collection saw seasonal summer stripes and vintage florals in contrasting aubergine and daffodil hues; high-waisted tailoring and wide collars gave the collection a retro-feel while the addition of side slits and bare-shoulder necklines remained in-keeping with forecast Spring/Summer trends.
The styling was done to artistic perfection. Dark lipstick and a reflective sheen to the contouring, giving the models an artificial quality - real-life portraits of modern-vintage dress.

Light and breezy silhouettes form the backdrop for this vibrant floral print pack from adidas. Precious orchids bloom in soft focus photo-print against lush greens on a deep black background. Feminine but never girly, the covetable, rare and ultra sculpted orchid is the perfect floral reference to encapsulate the spirit of adidas Originals.
Relaxed and easy, cropped tees and loose racer vests mix effortlessly with stretch tights and classic running shorts. Comfort jerseys and tactile tricots are given a touch of flower power with the all over orchid print unfurling under rubber trefoils or print filled branding against super fresh white.
Available in store now.
