It’s always a pleasure to see Paula Knorr’s collection, which is a veritable feast for the eyes, especially if you are into unabashed 70s disco glamour! A juxtaposition between volume and fitted silhouettes, Body-con one-sleeved ruffled styles are set in contrast to oversized cape-like contours and fluid feminine pieces, beautifully highlighting Knorr’s signature cutting techniques. These are pieces which are stand out without you even having to try, with the underlying theme of a Grecian Goddess meets Studio 54. What’s not to adore?
Multicolour Swarovski crystal banding is embroidered on draped shift dresses, creating a fringe-like movement at the hem. The Swarovski crystals then trace and accentuate the natural body lines, creating an illusion of movement.
Alongside ready-to-wear, Knorr has also collaborated with design duo RÄTHEL&WOLF to create statement jewellery featuring SWAROVSKI crystals in new ways; the minimal and bold language of the jewellery elevates the collection by providing perfect contrast with Knorr’s signature fluid shapes.
