JOHN PAUL ATAKER F/W 2016
NOSTALGIC NEW YORK
For immediate release: New York, NY – February 3, 2016 – In the case of the tailored, transformative silhouettes, the journey of John Paul Ataker’s Fall / Winter 2016 Collection is a stylistic sojourn to the ideal of nostalgic New York. Inspired by the “virtual trip through old, faded postcards representing the beautiful architectural expressions,” the flowing lines and classic designs of the collection evoke a global New York Woman who answers to the lure of the city.
Structured materials inside of the collection reveal the designer’s architectural urge, being presented in dome shape adornments, geometric three-dimensional floral motifs, and sculptural exploration in negative and positive space, all essential to Ataker's couture driven ethos of merging both art and design. His aesthetic also plays on the the fundamentals of fabric and form of both the feminine and masculine, the designer comments, “Fabric gives voice to my needs, like a painting I can express myself. I can merge together different colors, quality of threads and techniques to reach the pattern I want; this is a process that demands time and passion.”
Reflecting his unending commitment to quality, the designer has explored the globe in pursuit of the finest jacquards, satins, tulles, and gabardines, which are presented in ivory, anthracite, violet, and ocher inside of his new collection. For Ataker, the journey of design is also a journey of his own, who’s family owned company was founded in the 1970’s. “I’m thankful for the work in the textile sector that allowed me to travel between thirty-two countries and thus came into contact with a multitude of cultures,” commented Ataker. “This unique experience has triggered the need to express myself even more, I could tell pushing my practice from the two to three dimensional”.
This ambitious ethic parallels the woman for whom the collection was created. Throughout the process, Ataker envisioned one who is both powerful and feminine, whose discerning taste is reflected in a wardrobe that emphasizes high-quality fabrics, elegant contours, and superb tailoring. Her presence is enhanced, not defined, by her wardrobe: the timeless New York woman, of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
