The Church of St. Gabriel turned into an oasis for a few dozens of minutes. Bunches of wildflowers were stewn on the floor, drops of water were raining down from the ceiling; one almost expected a bird would land on one's palm at any moment and start to chirp. When models dressed in bright white began to walk into the room accompanied by the sound of a piano, the visitors couldn't but think:
"This is what paradise must look like."
The color white was one of the main features of this year's collection from the talented designer Jiří Kalfař.
"In this collection, I saw the color white as something like a blank canvas - white is the first color, snowdrops are white, when the snow thaws, it's white. It's a kind of rebirth. You can gloss it over with anything and start a new life or take a new approach,"
Jiří Kalfař explained the symbolism of the whole collection for LP-life.com.
An incredibly sexy White Lady
Until I saw Kalfař's show, I'd had no idea that the color white, which is typically considered to be a symbol of innocence, could be so sexy. Yet the whole collection carried in the spirit of bewitching femininity and sensuality. And it was a dazzling sight to behold! If someone had told me yesterday that I would fall madly in love with the color I consider most impractical, I wouldn't have believed you.
I can't say for sure which piece from the collection I liked the most, because I'd love to have several of them at home. But... flowing sleeves and translucent materials? Yes, please! I'd be willing to give up all colorful foods for this dress. Forever.
Not a single butterfly was harmed
Overall, Kalfař's collection is sustainable and made of organic materials. The designer used, for example, vegan silk or fabrics from banana or pineapple trees. In the rare cases when Kalfař resorted to something inorganic, it was upcycled or recycled. His collection left nature intact.
"I believe that in this day and age, fashion should be sustainable and shouldn't harm the planet,"
Kalfař shared with LP-life.com the opinion he is known for. And we give him a thumbs up. Way to go!
The designer combined the individual materials in a brilliant way. I was immediately excited about the jacket that combines a shiny material with lace. What's more, the neither dressed nor undressed style solves the dilemma of whether to dress as an uncompromising business woman or a romantic fairy when going to work. With this piece, one can be both!
