German designer Paula Knorr presented her Spring Summer 2018 womenswear collection, inspired by strong female personality and diversity, during the ongoing London Fashion Week.
Oversized Shirts are transformed into fitted dresses with ruffled drapes and liquid metallic sleeves. Suits and coats are reworked in smooth jersey with soft drapes waving along their side seams. Hoodies and Sweatshirts are completely reconstructed in stretch velvet with ruffled details. Jeans are transformed into stretch lamé pants with dramatically draped legs. Even Bra tops and Boxershorts are extended into fluid drapes and reworked in shiny silks.
Classic white and dark blue is mixed with strong red and blush pinks. Traditional shirting is set in contrast to matt jerseys, stretch velvets, fluid metallics and washed lamés. Paula reworked her signature cuts in off shoulder versions and transparent T-shirt dresses with free floating drapes.
For jewelery Paula collaborated with befriended designer duo RÄTHEL&WOLF. They developed pieces, inspired by classic jewellery shapes and female body movement.“
