Julie Paskal, an Ukrainian fashion designer launched at Kiev Fashion Week, showed her Fall-Winter 2017-18 collection during the latest Paris Fashion Week.
The inspiration is an intimate story. It’s an homage to the city of Tel-Aviv, where she spent the final month of her pregnancy.
Julie Paskal was exploring the city. She was admiring the architecture, interacting with the environment and making notes. She felt in love with Tel-Aviv’s retrofuturistic Bauhaus with its awkward curves, shapes and textures. The collection expresses the designer’s personal feelings in relation with the surrounding.
The brand, famous for its delicate silhouette and minimal shapes, explores a clean and very feminine design that reminds to Japanese designers of the ’80s.
The wearability is over; iconic pieces of the collection are the “egg coats” with maxi pockets.
The laser-cut that is part of the DNA of Paskal gives to the design a strong distinctive touch.
Drawstrings on shoulders, dresses and skirts defines the silhouette of the collection.
Paskal uses technical materials such as milk-white lace, enclosed in transparent vinyls, and 3D-flowers made of reflective fabric.
The color palette of the collection is a reminiscence of the contrast between stone and subtropical plants, urbanism and nature. Black is the dominant color confronted by a bright splash of greens: mint and apple green, as well as white floral lace and atlas print, both revealing the purity and innocence.
Once again, Julie Paskal with her sublime spirit surprised us with her minimal and refined creations.
