A COLLECTION INSPIRED BY THE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
BLOWING TO THE PRESENT: “IMBAT”
GOKHANYAVAS, who presents the Spring-Summer 2022 “Imbat” collection as a part of Fashion Week Istanbul, is inspired by the Aegean wind in the beautiful memories of his childhood.
The images of the collection:
"Imbat" is a small break in life away from the city, which comes blowing from the old heritage stone houses intertwined with nature in the intimate streets that warm people's hearts, combining the songs of birds with the sun, saturated with blue, green and a lot of peace at the sunrise of a summer day. An Aegean wind blowing warm from roads where the stones are aligned, from indispensable scented soaps, to the memories of childhood reminding the coffee on sands, making even begonias that attract the eye with their vivid colors dream of decanters. So here is the birth of GOKHANYAVAS 2022 Spring-Summer collection: “IMBAT”
Inspired by the figures in nature, GOKHANYAVAS 2022 Spring-Summer collection consists of vibrant and dynamic colors that take fashion lovers back to their childhood.
