The AW 2018/2019 collection must be slightly chaotic and varied, as when you go down the street and perceive colours, shape, figures... With this vision, Klára Nademlýnská started to create the luxury collection, bearing the name Night in the Church, in which she applied her favourite themes, inspired by church-related themes.
The favourite motif of a dove, which the designer had already created in the past, is not lacking in the AW 2018/2019 collection either. On the Designblok catwalk it was presented in a new, black-gold implementation applied on a lace background of a luxurious evening dress.
For the creation of her new collection, Klára Nademlýnská has also invited Andrea Vytlačilová and Daniela Ferenčíková. Andrea Vytlačilová created a drawing of a "Madonna" on an altar, which reflects details from history up to present. Daniela Ferenčíková on the other hand created hand-woven tapestries with themes of renaissance portraits of women, translated into pop-art style.
For this reason, too, the designer complemented the models by leather belts and massive metal clasps reminiscent of a wild western. The unique accessories highlighted the feminine silhouette both in respect of models of thicker fabrics such as wool or denim, as well as gowns made of silk.
The icing on the cake of the whole fashion show were unique necklaces inspired by the rosary, made of pressed beads of various lengths, created in cooperation with Preciosa Components.
You may view the luxury AW 2018/2019 collection, which mixes artistic images with denim, shimmering satin, lace, wool, artificial fur, or velvet, in our gallery.
From a western, a sexy nightie to lumberjack check. Was it a success?
First of all, I would begin with the positives. I was most of all interested in the deeply black evening gown with a sophisticated, detailed top part, which was full of sparkle. But a more modestly concealed bottom part would perhaps be far more effective. One way or the other, the final outcome was great, I give it a green light! For a pre-wedding evening party full of provocation, why not...
The denim mega skirts and checks all around will do for some western ranch, but even though I love horses and the atmosphere of a lifestyle far away from the city centre, I find that these creations by Klára failed to draw my attention. But what did win my full vote is the original denim jacket with an image of a woman with a cigarette on the back. If I added a pair of slim leather trousers, Jimmy Choo ankle high heels and a Fendi Peekaboo Regular handbag, it would immediately be love at first sight!
