Three questions to... Johanna Senyk from Wanda Nylon

 

The Parisian label Wanda Nylon presented last week its second runway show that extended the urban tendencies of the spring-summer 2016 collection. Hoodies get mixed up with occasionally loose and easy to wear long dresses.

Numéro: Who wrote the poem you put on the seats at your runway show?

Joanna Senyk: My big sister wrote it using lots of punchlines I’d given her that translate the attitude of the Wanda Nylon women. So for example I said to her, “no pearls, no bags”. I want to reflect an independent woman who doesn’t hide behind bourgeois conventions, or get tricked by consumerism. I also like the idea of addressing a woman who works, and not an idler. I’ve sometimes been told my discourse is kind of feminist, and I have no problem with that at all [laughs].

 

Your fall-winter 2016-17 collection continues to explore the language of your label specialising initially in plastic and outerwear materials…

This is our second runway show, and it does indeed fall in with this project of proposing a complete wardrobe. I always work with the plastic materials, but I develop new pieces every season, and this time it was technical knits and eveningwear that uses Lurex. It’s always about serving women and giving them contemporary options to get dressed up in. 

 

You’re one of the nominees for the LVMH prize, how do you see your participation in that competition?

I work on every collection as if it were THE collection of my life. So it doesn’t change anything vis-à-vis my total investment, but I have to admit that I was so happy when I found out, just before Paris Fashion Week, I immediately did five new extra looks for my runway show.
