LFW: Paula Knorr Autumn Winter 2018 Collection
Discover Paula Knorr Fall Winter 2018/19 collection presented during the ongoing London Fashion Week. Focussing on the impact of intimacy and sensuality in female dressing, the collection features body-hugging silhouettes, as well as Knorr’s signature cutting techniques.
Womenswear today ranges from extreme nudity to demure precision. Inspired by this freedom, Knorr creates a collection that showcases her own vision of what empowered and sensual dressing can be today. The collection features body-hugging silhouettes throughout; highlighting Knorr’s signature cutting techniques as she transforms evening dresses into comfortable yet powerful designs. The collection combines luxurious fabrics with dramatic shapes and strives to push the boundaries of evening wear with hints of power dressing incorporated. Wrapped turtleneck, sequin gowns and mini-dresses in velvet printed tulle are mixed with voluminous wool trousers and tunics. Materials include glossy metallics, soft wools and heavy sequins; all of which intensify the sensual feel of the collection. Strong, bold reds and silver sit in contrast to blush blues to create a strong but sensual colour palette. For her AW18 presentation, Knorr collaborates with experimental Jazz singer Laura Totenhagen who transforms empowering poems into music. Her live performance together with a strong and diverse mix of models, exclusively cast from Linden & Staub, celebrates female sensuality and power throughout. – from Paula Knorr
