25 OCT 2023. Latvian fashion brand Nolo presented its new exquisite "Kyoto Garden" collection at the cultural and entertainment center Hanzas Perons during the 37th Riga Fashion Week

The Nolo collection for this year draws inspiration from the enchanting Kyoto Garden in London. Known for its serene ambiance, the garden offers a picturesque Japanese-style landscape that is ideal for moments of tranquility and rejuvenation. Renowned Japanese designer Shoji Nakahara, who leads the Kyoto Garden Association, skillfully crafted this garden with vibrant plants, shrubs, and captivating water features.

Here are photographs from the Nolo fashion show, that beautifully captured the “Kyoto Garden” collection at the 37th Riga Fashion Week. These images were taken with a Sony Alpha 7 III mirrorless camera and a Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS lens.

As Viktorija states: “Our production is our pride, we don’t resort to cheap labor like fast-fashion companies”

Nolo ensures excellent working conditions for our employees, offers competitive salaries, and dutifully pays all taxes. Nolo designs often surpass contemporary trends and maintain a fashion-forward edge for several seasons post-purchase. In 2021, Nolo introduced two sub-brands: Nolo Home, offering a range of cozy, aesthetically pleasing comfort wear and home textiles; and Nolo Golf, featuring advanced sportswear.

Nolo philosophy is straightforward – prioritize quality over quantity. Don’t be swayed by fleeting trends that come and go. Instead, assess the durability and composition of the fabric. Moreover, consider the ethical implications behind your clothing choices, such as ensuring fair working conditions and avoiding child labor, as well as considering the energy costs of the items in your wardrobe. At Nolo, firmly believe that their clothes reflect who they are.
