Paula Knorr, the queen of lavish evening wear and draping returned to London fashion week, bringing with her, a collection of Swarovski crystal adorned dresses, tops and trousers.
Adding a contemporary adaptation to evening wear her unprecedented design technique, use of oversized sequins, asymmetric cuts and geometric silver shapes fused, to create the luxury, elegant evening wear that Knorr is known for.
Throughout the collection, brave, figure hugging silhouettes, layered with experimental draping are covered with gentle crystal placement and delicate sequins. Merging luxury with comfort, Knorr includes a sportive element to her collection, combining gentle fabrics of jersey and lycra alongside more lavish fabrics, creating comfort, flexible drapes and rushing within her elegant designs allowing for a gentle fluid movement to the garments.
Demonstrating a captivating contrasting against the sport focus of the collection, a combination of fluid satin fabrics, soft lame velvets with a glossy liquid shine, in bright neon’s, rich wine reds, and soft blush pinks embellished with a blend of mesmerising sequins and iridescent Swarovski crystals.
Included within the collection a signature Paula Knorr design featured a contrast of the elegant and sportive design. A partially translucent, fitted black mesh top, presenting a high neck and fitted sleeves ending at the elbow, embellished with a delicate placement of Swarovski crystals acted as the highlight of the garment. Further accentuating the outfit, black fitted trousers in a glossy lycra material presented a unique draping effect falling from a fitted wait from which the two aspects of the ensemble merged, creating the illusion of a dress.
Incorporating geometric silver shapes, a line of jewellery created by Paula Knorr worn alongside the collection complimented the asymmetric shapes, luxurious sequins and crystals exhibited throughout the line.
Creating a collection of allure, elegance and luxury, Knorr once again demonstrated her complimentary design technique, unique tailoring and understanding of the female form for her AW19 collection.
