Whether it’s a trend or a movement or something else altogether, agender fashion is here to stay. The latest twist comes from NINOBrand designer Bela Shehu, who created a five-piece capsule collection inspired by and developed with Philadelphia’s Hotel Palomar. The collection will be available as a concierge service for hotel visitors beginning in October.
Shehu told the Cut, “The idea of shopping the collection in the [hotel] room was to be relevant and satisfy all guests of all genders, so with that in mind I chose technical fabrics and functional details to be mindful of the ease that these garments would provide the traveler. The tailored details remain as the main feature of NINObrand collection in efforts to always please the sophisticated consumer.”
NINOBrand x Hotel Palomar is part of the hotel’s “Shop Like a Local” guide, which is curated by fashion blogger and Instagram star Ian Michael Crumm.
Five percent of all NINOBrand x Hotel Palomar sales will go to Career Wardrobe, a Philadelphia nonprofit that provides unemployed women with the office attire they need to get back in the game.
