There is, for sure, a certain difference between the first piece of Johanna Senyk (a raincoat made up from a shower curtain) and the elegant pony long jackets and denim coats from the Fall/Winter 2017/2018 collection. Fairly new on Fashion Week stages, the designer of Wanda Nylon brand admitted, in the backstage of the show at Paris Fashion Week that she wanted to design the clothes to speak put loud. To make a collection for power girls. And several models of “revolutionary berets” were on the stage to support the manifesto. (CLICK on the gallery above, for more pictures)
What I could have seen on the catwalk? First, a lost of contrasted volumes: cocoon-shaped pants or flared ones, with a little vibe of 70s were put against oversized outwear pieces and cinched waists, the long metallic dresses or sparkling jumpsuits were opposed to jackets with a lot of volume. Then it was the ingenious mix of fabrics. The designer of Wanda Nylon – winner of the 2016 ANDAM prize and one of the growing star in the fashion world, mixed syntethic shinny vinyls and lurex with natural cowhide and sheepskin, as well as bold furs in yellow or snow white with hard indigo denim full of stitches – a cool urban girl meeting the disco geek.
As for colours,, although there was plenty of black, white, camel and unbleached denim, she also sent out an array of looks in primary reds and yellows and a bright turquoise, combining them, for example, on a knit dress with a shabby-chic appeal.
