Nensi Dojaka Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection


Nensi Dojaka is one of the freshest forces in women’s fashion for a long time to emerge from London, or perhaps internationally. LVMH’s creative directors judged her the other day, when they awarded her the 2021 LVMH Prize winner from an impressive panel of global contenders. She had her first solo exhibition today, a collection that showed all the finesse she managed to evolve by dressing the female body in shades of revelation and concealment designed with class.

Dojaka’s is a total look that arrived just in time to accommodate the pent-up desires of young women who have spent too much time in confinement and seeking a way out from the concealed gowns and loungewear that came down during the lockdown. Here’s her antidote, elevated from summer’s crop-top street craze to a level of luxury: dresses topped with petal-shaped bras held by tiny straps to reveal plunging backs; Super fitted high waisted tapered pants and draped tops in cable georgette. The tailored jackets, some with separate sleeves, were tied with thin black ribbons.

Then the tights: who has ever seen tights like Dojaka’s tights, with a cutout area containing a tulle flower on one thigh, and seams on the front? Her repertoire includes pointed shoes, straps, kitten heels (the solver of proportions to avoid vulgarity), ribbed-knit dresses, draped swimsuits and bras. The whole proposition.

Dojaka has a lot of fans. Dua Lipa and Rita Ora are among them; like her, both have Albanian roots and grew up in London. Dojaka has lived and studied in the city since the age of 17. She first learned the demanding art of lingerie technology at London College of Fashion, hence her fanatically perfectionist expertise in painstaking calibrations of fitted bras and multiple adjustable straps. She then progressed through the Central St Martins MA course, then to her first group outings with Fashion East.

The fact that her company was essentially formed during the worst of the pandemic – and that it has delivered and sold on Matches, Ssense and Mytheresa throughout – is a testament to the down-to-earth realism of this hardworking young woman. She makes sophisticated, desirable and complex products centered on the complex desires of her sophisticated female peers. Out of the dark days, here’s something really exciting to see.
