He designs for himself, he designs for people with a clear opinion. Maybe this is one of the reasons why the young designer decided to present his street collection at Letná and open it to the general public, rather than closing it into the Clam-Gallas Palace.

Jan Černý took over Letná with his SS19 collection. His models went topless!

Jan Černý’s progressive step

Jan Černý was the only designer at MBPFW who decided to organise his show in a public space – at Letná Park. This allowed every fan and proponent of Czech fashion to take a look at the new SS19 collection. And there was plenty to see indeed!

Horrific spiders replaced by casual street style

While at the last Prague Fashion Week, the young designer presented his luxurious FW18 collection full of horrific spiders coming out of mouths, this time he opted for a more decent alternative. He left the scary props behind and present luxurious street style outfits.

Following the example of global designers, he opted for neoprene

A year ago now, Kim Jones, still in the position of creative director for Louis Vuitton at the time, tried to convince the fashion world that neoprene is the next hot material. Apparently, he may have succeeded. Jan Černý also opted for this unconventional material to create trousers and shorts which are sure to draw people’s attention.

Popular overalls combined with tie-dye

In addition to neoprene garments, the SS19 collection also includes timeless overalls with backpacks, sporty fanny packs and travel bags, tie-dyed shirts, tops, swimsuits, sweatshirts and jackets, cotton t-shirts or stylish coats.

Grand finale: Models out for a run

Before Jan Černý appeared in person to thunderous applause at the end of his fashion show, he sent all the models to take another turn on the runway topless. Following the luxurious Tereza Vu lingerie collection, the ladies thus also had an unexpected treat at the end.

Résumé? A luxurious show that belonged to the best we’ve seen so far at MBPFW!

Inspired by Prada perhaps?

Jan Černý presented a collection at Letná Park that is fairly wearable and does not offend. Nevertheless, we must admit from the outset that it is really nothing ground-breaking or world-class.

After a more thorough inspection of the garments, I kept wondering what they remind me of. Finally, I figured it out. The Prada FW18 men’s collection. That’s where we’ve already seen loads of various tags hanging from clothing, or every imagine shoulder bag, which was last “in” at the start of the millennium. Not to mention the neoprene trousers and shorts, which I saw a YEAR AGO from designer Thom Browne. By the way, his neoprene suit retails for 85,500 CZK. Jan Černý can only dream about that.

But to avoid being so critical, I did find a few items that I liked. For instance, the black sweatshirt and shorts splattered with white paint. NUNUNU sells the same thing on Amazon for 500 CZK with a discount, but I think it’s a cool combination for strolling around the city somewhere.
