"I am Demeter, revered by all, the power most useful for godsand men,"
For his Spring Summer 2018 collection, Ziad Nakad decided to celebratethe « Goddess of wheat" and "Mother of the Earth". Goddesswho gathers the fruits of the earth and offers them to humanity;its cult is particularly flourishing in the countries where this wheatis found in abundance, in Sicily, in the region of Eleusis, in Crete, inThrace and in the Peloponnese.
Like a bird flying over the harvests, perfectly free, crossing a colorfulsky, resplendent and singularly geometric: the pale blue of thefirmament mixes with the yellow and gold of the wheat, the green ofthe earth, the coral of the ocean and the bronze trees at sunset.Wheat ears dot the dresses, a tribute to the most iconic representationof the goddess Demeter. Dress after dress, Ziad Nakad plays asubtle game that celebrates life in a precise mastered know-howand silk embroidery sublimated tulles.
Ziad Nakad created this collection for a strong woman, assumed,voluntary but also and especially generous, inspired by one of themost favorable deities to humans, as a symbol of accomplishmentand peace.
