About Soleil Nation
As a young future icon fashion designer, having fun and expressing love is very important to Soleil and this is reflected in her work. Art has always played an important role in the Fashion World and is constantly used as an inspiration. Soleil’s fashion brand is just that, her fabric designs derived from her own artwork.
In today’s society, we are under constant and intense media bombardment about what is “accepted” and capitalism has turned fashion into a tool for mass production and fast consumption. Slowing down. The process, Soleil wanted to concentrate on the essence of human relationship which for her is Art, fabric, and common ground.
This fun spring/ summer collection explores inclusivity while prideful of our own tribe. It was inspired by a Japanese culture called osoroi code (おそろいコーデ), or matching outfits, and we do it when we’re out with friends, partners or family. Osoroi code people say that wearing matching outfits is an expression of their love and closeness with their partners or friends.
