Krystof Strozyna’s beautifully simple and clean cut collection was perfectly off set by the delicious art deco/Egyptian surroundings of Freemasons’ Hall. Strong separates such as trapeze line tops and slim cropped trousers competed with exquisite and sensuous dresses. Which were less ‘dress’ and more akin to carefully constructed little slithers of a thing.
Slits, cuts (at the waist, neck and thigh), zips and geometric patching were featured throughout, all giving the collection a dynamic and rather sporty feel whilst retaining a strong appreciation for femininity. Colours were restricted to the trend forecasted palette of Sahara twilight blue, sandy nudes and grey as well as a strong monochrome presence throughout.
We were lucky enough to grab the charming Krystof Strozyna for a couple of questions backstage. Krystof noted that Polish fashion is an exciting new source for future talent, and whilst it may be in earlier stages of development than traditional fashion capitals, it is unmarked by consciousness and free to flourish. In the designers own words, Polish fashion “is getting better and better”. Krystof Strozyna’s AW 2012 collection is certainly testament to that.
