Self-described as really shy, Na Di (designer Dina's code name) created Na Di Studio as a facade for a louder form of self-expression. Na Di attended famed designer incubator Central St. Martin's back in 2008, but didn't officially launch a collection until last Spring. What began as line specializing in the colorful and cheekily conceptual has evolved into a powerhouse of texture and strength. Na Di Studios has been picking up awards right out the gate, so if you didn't know, now you know. Na Di's penchant for strong graphics combined with her unique takes on tailoring (double-layer blazers, anyone?) have thrust her, however unwittingly, into the position of designer-to-watch. Look through a few snaps from her spring '15 lookbook below, then pop over here to read Na Di's thoughts on vacations, cats, and the playful potential of menswear.
