This season, Jiri Kalfar presented a 1970s inspired SS19 collection, accentuating the glamour, luxury and aesthetic of the 70s, a time of freedom and a time of change, as people experimented with style and found their voice.
Each season, Kalfar produces the highest standard couture and pure beauty. This season, they have gone a step beyond, by producing an Eco-friendly collection. The brand focussed on creating zero waste patterns, recycled sequins and up-cycled clothing. They also invested in new Eco-friendly materials, such as Muskin, which is essentially which is a vegetable leather made from a type of mushroom.
The collection consisted of menswear and womenswear, two-pieces, suits, jumpsuits, gowns and cocktail dresses, all of which were intricately handmade in the Czech Republic. We were treated to tones of gold, cobalt blue, bronze, dusky pink and rouge. The patterns of each piece were intricately crafted with sequins, embroidery and lace, creating luxurious and glamorous pieces.
