Lodz, Poland – The chilly atmosphere of the Scandinavian countries influence the work for Spring/Summer 2016 by Polish designer Jaroslaw Ewert. Six months ago his work was a mixture of fiery reds and futuristic design. This time the garments are colder, simplified and nature inspired.
The shows started with a silver, metallic leather jackets paired with printed skinny pants and a simple crop top. One could see regulars, which Ewert is known for like baggy pants, straight-line vests and coats with asymmetric zips. Other signature touches are colourful lining, A-line shapes, pleats, round necklines and high collars.
Maybe the design of the silhouettes is always clean and simple. I t includes multiple layering, mixed prints and different volumes of fabrics. As the show evolve it gets more sharp and complicated. The prints are maybe simple, yet have a little disturbing and melancholic appeal to them. On the dresses, skirts, pants and coats we can see sharp geometrical shapes, vertical lines, circles and abstract prints reminding plants, Norwegian fiords or water.
There are no accessorizes this time. And the colour palette is more subdued with white, navy, grey, silver, powder pink and black. Though maybe not as intense as Jaroslaw Ewert’s last work, but it is more refined and chilly.
One admits that this is a fine work from Jaroslaw Ewert. The brand’s signature style continues to develop. It’s not such a strong fashion statement that the last one, but more commercial. A sure winner with the consumers searching for fine clothes, which stand out.
