February 2nd, 2017 / by / in: Dazzling stories / No responses

I know: when it comes to fashion, I fell instantly in love with the black&white clothes, with asymmetric lines, with pieces that resemble more to an architectural piece or with details inspired by art classes. Therefore, NAT Atelier fashion lines caught my attention even from the mood board. So, I talked about fashion, trends and the spring/summer collection with Nat Stakhniv, creative director of the brand NAT Atelier, brand present these days at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Kiev.

Tell me about the defining features of your F/W’17/18 collection. What we are going to wear next summer? 

Our collection consists of comfortable and functional pieces; it is graphic and clear-cut clothing. Things which highlight one’s individuality and personality will be popular in the nearest future.

What is the story of this brand, NAT atelier? 

NAT Atelier is a fashion brand inspired by graphic, conceptualism and philosophy. The brand was established in London in 2015. Concise form and cut, versatility and minimalism – these features form the philosophy the brand promotes. Its founder and creative director Nat Stakhniv designs comfortable and smart clothes. Thus brand’s clothing complements the personality without prevailing over it.

The NAT designer background includes…

I was born in Russia in 1983. I moved to Ukrainian city Lviv with my parents when I was a kid. After graduating from school I studied philosophy in the Catholic University. At age of 25 I attended Fashion week for the first time and soon I started working there. After a while I realized that I really want to contribute to fashion industry and make something worthy in this sphere. So in 2015 NAT Atelier was created by me and my partner Ireneusz Mackowiak.

What is your signature-piece in every of your collections? 

It is always rather a versatile piece, but the one in which I try to unite concise and clear cut with graphic look.

What are your major influences in fashion?

I pay attention to structure and lines, geometry and architecture of a thing. I appreciate the peculiarity of fashion to change all the time; this helps us to evolve as well.

What you are have in mind for the next collection?

The geometry of the world that surrounds us everywhere.

The 5 pieces everybody should have anytime are…

I would name a little cocktail dress, a sweatshirt, a pair of trousers, a skirt and a top.

NAT Atelier, in 5 words…  

Openness, architecture, idea, symbol, functionality.
