Thought it was impossible to wear lingerie to your 9-to-5 job? Well Nensi Dojaka’s Spring 2022 collection has proved you wrong. Debuted at London Fashion Week on September 17th, Dojaka sturrs spaghetti-strap vulnerability with all-work-no-play suits. Through the pairing of boudoir-chic and business casual, this collection is for those of us who can party, but go home early enough to be missed.

The collection is a cobweb of fluttering slips, ruched tulle corsets, and cut-throat suits. Sticking to a tight palette, there are blazers the color of cognac, body-suits iridescent as the scales of a Betta fish, and lemonade pink trousers. But overall, the designs are stained in four coats of mascara. Dojaka hotwires the little black dress concept into a sheer vehicle for vulnerability. 

The new designs are a striptease of sharp silhouettes and gentle details. Gutting the frills and fuss, we are met with the purity of lines. Veils of mesh envelope straps skinny as grenade pins. Spherical breast cups are tailored taut, like modern day fig leaves. Wispy blouses are anchored by masculine tailoring. The mosaic of layers enriches the body-suits and frocks. At its heart, the garments pulse with extreme simplicity and praise of bare skin.

As a recent graduate of the prestigious MA course at Central Saint Martins, this is Nensi Dojaka’s first show. On her website, Dojaka states her aspiration for the label is “to repaint the image of women; showing both sides: the vulnerability, but mainly the strength that characterises them.” Femininity has no definition. Femininity is fluid, multidimensional, and layered, like Dojaka’s designs. The transparent and nakedness of the garments are not skin deep. But rather, Dojaka's collection celebrates the body, shameless and unleashed in day-to-day life.
