Bucharest, Romania – Lui by Luiza is one of this writer’s favorite names in Romanian fashion. The house’s new collection starts very strong and plays on the pleats theme that is already a popular one for Fall Winter 2017/18. She creates looks that combines gold pleated silk pieces with others in velvet, lace, etc. From there the collection starts to lack cohesion. This causes it to move a bit all over the place. Not only do the shapes and materials vary widely, but the colors also vary too much in order for the body of work presented here to be considered as a true collection.
This is more of a catwalk presentation of individual looks. Like many others in Romania, Lui by Luiza will have to learn to comply with the basic norms of ready-to-wear. This is not just important for visuals, but also for approaching boutiques and department stores who will demand only cohesiveness.
