Czech designer Jiří Kalfář presented his SS19 collection at the beginning of the London Fashion Week. He regularly receives praise for his deluxe work abroad and it comes as no surprise when you see his most recent work. His SS19 collection is wonderfully sensual, perfectly timeless and, most importantly, world class!
We could see that his young talented designer likes glitter and lustre in his previous AW 18/19 collection, during which model Alina Baiková wore a sexy black dress with a glittering skirt and Pavlína Pořízková presented a no-less magnificent gold gown. This deluxe collection fell somewhere between splendour and elegant simplicity.
But for this year’s SS19 collection the designer has abandoned minimalism and decided that everyone would shine in his models!
Jiří Kalfář has created magnificent gowns for women, in which they will be amazing not only at a deluxe party or during a romantic dinner for two, but even at a business meeting for example. Jiří Kalfář’s new collection is dominated by items for every occasion and you can see models full of delicate lace, sequins, transparent tulle, shiny satin and soft silk and also simpler items in the form of Bohemian maxi-skirts or an elegant blazer with unusual cut-outs on the shoulders.
The SS19 collection also contains several models for men, the design of which requires a little creativity and courage from the wearers. Not every Czech man is ready to wear a vest with sequins or a deluxe shiny jacket made from jacquard fabric in unusual patterns. However, limits are made to be broken and this applies even more so during fashion weeks!
A ballet dancer in his youth, then a model and finally a designer himself. This is a brief summary of the life of one of our most successful designers. His works are superb! I honestly support him and I am proud that he represents us in the world.
And now back to his SS19 collection, which he presented at the London Fashion Week. It is full of sequins, sexy designs and provocation at the same time. I really like his ocean blue sequinned trousers with the metallic corset, which is also covered in sequins. Absolutely perfect for wearing to a club or cocktail party in the evening! I would just remove the wide necklace and add some simple dangling earrings. For your information all the sequins used for his collection were removed from unwanted clothing, because Jiří wants to promote environmental protection in the fashion industry. HATS OFF TO HIM!
And finally I have to mention the beautiful cream-coloured lace dress. And I loved the combination with the cream musketeer boots, also embellished with lace. They transformed a “froufrou” dress into something unbelievable sexy. And this playfulness from Jiří Kalfař is what I enjoy enormously!
