Lodz, Poland – The designer Bajer Ola-Bola shows a really energetic mixture of colors, details and designs both for women and men. The main colors are red, black and white, with details in gold and silver. The fabrics used include wool, chiffon, silk and cotton – everything organic. The theme of the collection is “fylgir’ meaning inseparable.
The designer makes her own prints and custom made fabrics. She generally does most of the work by herself. The wild prints give the clothes an edgy look. Some of the them are inspired by Scandinavian designs. The designer mixes silver and gold in a really interesting way (metallic’s are a big trend now) and uses Swarovski crystals as unexpected accents. The collection features dresses, blouses, shorts, skirts and coats. Some the pieces seemed to be heavy while others are really lightweight and almost like lingerie. The sets where a big mixture of prints on prints (strong trend) and multiple layers. The fabrics are shiny and matt, which also gives an interesting combination. Most of the clothes are really fitted defining the body.
All of the pieces — though sometimes chaotic — belong together and are really well thought out. They are not glamorous, but the casualty and the edge of the collection will get noticed by the modern day individual loving to stand out and loving clothes with much detail. This is really for urban mavericks.
