Clothier de la mediterranee oriental
Nackiye is a collection of individually designed artisanal garments savouring the charm of the eastern mediterranean.
Created Basak & Defne Kocabiyikoğlu, the brand expresses the sister duo’s sense of aesthetics inspired by childhood days spent in sleepy fishing towns that would transform into glitzy resorts with a mix of socialites and one-name celebrities alighting in the summer months for lazy days by the sea.
Designed for the modern-day globetrotting woman, a variety of local dress styles, kaftans, and harem pants find a contemporary attitude in the collections. Exquisite fabrics and fine-quality materials are executed in fluid forms to hide or emphasize the silhouette based on the movement of the wearer.
Meanwhile inspired prints, delicate embroideries and vibrant colours perfectly sync with the spirit of the idyllic destinations. The overall result is relaxed elegance with uncomplicated affluence and a hint of subtle seduction.
The name “nackiye” is of Turkish origin, taken from the sisters’ great grandmother’s name.
