LFW Diary SS11: Krystof Strozyna

A label I wasn’t overly familiar with, on Tuesday evening I attended the Krystof Strozyna SS11 fashion show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout. Not really knowing what to expect, the show opened with a short film depicting a stunning model eating flowers with great aplomb.

No sooner than the film had started, guests were treated to a multitude of meticulously draped nudes, flesh tone lace dresses and leggings akin to body-stockings, a result of the extreme body-con shapes shown, filtering down the catwalk in quick succession.

Clean silhouettes, graphic cuts and oversized wooden jewellery were a few trademarks of Krystof Strozyna present on his SS11 catwalk – or so I learned. With this being his sixth eponymous collection, Strozyna built upon his favourite themes, focusing on subtle nature-inspired prints, adding serious sex appeal to his hourglass silhouette.

Contrasting chiffon was draped and inserted into panels of fitted dresses, with sheer panelling present in full length trousers, visible from knee to ankle, adding a very tame fetishist appeal. With a timid colour palette of creamy violet, mint green and diluted fuchsia, this is a collection sure to hit the spot next season.
