Lodz, Poland – The 14th edition of Polish Fashion Week started with great hopes for the future. This is the vision championed in the new Fall/Winter 2016/17 collection by young designer Damian Szczesny.
The inspiration behind the collection is horse riding fashion. One could see a wide selection of pieces made out of heavy height fabrics. The strong point of the work is the focus on details with everything being constructed and well thought out. We can find long dresses, skirts, pants, jackets, sweaters and coat. The dresses have a dropped waist and the A-line skirts are flow. The most eye-catching pieces are the chunky, long sweaters that are indeed see through.
The men’s collection also feature the same materials and textures. The comfortably cut trousers have large elastic waists. The looks are completed with either oversized tops in large mesh knits or with metallic coats.
The pants are voluminous, with pleats. We can also find even a bodysuit. Other point worth mentioning are the leather goods with sachets, backpacks and leather jackets. They appear in metallic, vivid colors that contrast greatly with the muted palette of the collection of black, gray, cream, teal and yellow.
