Born in Toronto, half Greek half German designer Nicolas Andreas Taralis went on to study at Parsons School of Design in New York. He later spent some time in Vienna learning from Helmut Lang at the University of Applied Arts. Assisting Hedi Slimane for Dior Homme was his last venture before launching a line under his own name in 2004. Limiting his color palette, and stripping each piece down to the essential is a trademark of NAT. Instead of focusing on an abundance of colors or trends, he focuses on silhouettes, volume and details such as the quality of a single stitch. Structure and form has always been important to him and tailoring is the perfect medium to explore it. While others opt for cheaper and easier methods, Nicolas Andreas Taralis has a fetish for keeping true hand-tailoring alive in all of his collections.
