Yara Flinn's Past Life

For Nomia’s vibrant presentation at The Standard, Yara Flinn’s reference came from the heart. "My jumping off point was Japanese armor," said the excited brand’s creative head. "It’s really about color blocking, structure, and paneling. I’ve never been to Japan but I’m obsessed with armor to the core. I just go to the Met a lot and sometimes admire samurai blades as these perfect objects of engineering." Could Yara have been a samurai in a past life? "Probably!" she shrugged. "I think I was!"
