Lviv, Ukraine – For her Sax35th label, Polish designer Alicja Czarniecka has created some very interesting looks. The new Spring/Summer 2016 season is an easy sale for the designer as she has understood exactly how to offer what women today want.
The designer opens the collection with a short black cocktail dress. Though far from being the most exciting piece in the collection, it does set the tone for a summer of short cuts. The designer is working with sheers and horizontal leather bands to create an air of nudity, but still something that is covered. Among the first pieces to benefit from this is her tight black skirt. She pairs it with a nude tone sheer top with prints. The prints actually appear to be body art or tattoos against the nude. These motifs would go on to be repeated and elaborated upon in other fabrics.
Quickly we see Czarniecka tons and tons of tassels added to her work. From the skirts to the blouses and dresses, they create a huge amount of natural movement. This movement, along with the cuts, and expression generated by the models make for a collection that is exciting, appealing and attractive for all women to wear. That is as long as you have the legs and attitude to successfully carry them off.
Black is the overwhelming color of choice in the collection. However it is important to note that the Polish designer also adds in a bit of mocha. We find the mocha and the prints included in her tights and body suit as well. The great aspect of all this is that because of her intelligence, Czarniecka has managed to create a collection that is sexy enough to be desirable, but still safe enough to be a commercial success.
