Paris, France – Today in Paris the young fashion house Paskal presented its new collection for the Fall Winter 2017/18 season. In it we find its DNA of simplicity of cut, architectural forms and optimism in full force.
The house’s founder and artistic director Julie Paskal actually walking into her inspiration for the new collection in really what turns out to be one of the simplest of manners. In fact she found herself walking around Tel-Aviv during the last month of her recent pregnancy. During these walks she would explore her surroundings, take in the atmosphere and remark the architecture of what she saw. From these moments of solitude and pleasure came forth the inspiration for her new body of work. She describes the resulting aesthetics as “retrofuturistic”.
In creating the collection, Julie Paskal has brought together textures of lace, silk, knits and wool. To them she adds prints, 3D flower appliqués, and architectural forms. The proportions allow the cuts to make for shapes with roomy comfort. The details includes pleated materials and semi-opaque fabrics like vinyl that allow for light to slightly pierce through and thus reveal the skin. And though the collection is destined for the fall and for the colder winter months, numerous pieces are cut to reveal the shoulders, the legs, arms and neckline.
As it is a winter collection we do have nice amounts of warm materials. However because of the prints and colors such as pastel lilac, granny smith green apple and stone, the collection has a rather optimistic tone. It’s made more appealing thanks to the addition of the subtropical plants.
