Nefarious - wicked, criminal, up to no good. Unlike it’s dictionary definition, a nefarious woman walks the line of elegance and seductiveness. This collection is inspired with this woman in mind also drawing inspiration from timeless silhouettes, tradition and nature. Flowing lines and slices of agate accentuate femininity where cut-outs and more revealing style lines show the more flirtatious side of a woman who knows what she wants.
Lydia’s collection Nefarious in inspired by the colour blue, a rare yet striking colour found in nature. She compares the colour to the rare uniqueness that each individual woman is. Her collection showcases this through the addition of blue agates adorned to each garment, each individually chosen with her models in mind.
