Inspired by the art seen in mosques, the collection was all in quality wool in rich, varied shades from turquoise through to gold, red, navy and orange.
The Lucja Wojtala show this year at Fashion Week Poland, the event of the year, was recognizable- the same wool and similar colours were used in the previous collection. Inspired by the art seen in Islamic art and the focus on pattern, repetition and mirror images, the collection was strong and coherent, well matched with the typical winter dress code.
The designer changed the way the she used the wools this time- the shapes were free flowing or bound up, and there was a texture to them that had not been seen in previous shows. The collection was by far the most wearable- who would not want to snuggle into the comfortable knits for the winter? But although the clothing items brought about a warmth and wear ability, they were by far the most washed out of all the clothing seen so far- even if the collections were dark and somber, the black and the other shades were intensive and fulfilling. By no way is it the fault of the designer- the colours are bound to look softer and less striking on the wools. The good thing with the patterns was that they were clear, defined and perfectly proportioned. There was no haziness in this collection, and I think it was this feature that allowed it to be perfectly pulled off, even if a bit rigorously so.
