Paula Knorr AW/18 - 180 The Strand
Could there be a more glamorous and elegantly stunning collection than that of Paula Knorr? Well, the designer, most recognised and well known for creating clothing that empowers women has done it again. Knorr’s AW18 collection featured some stunning pieces, once again we see the signature aesthetic use of materials such as Lamé, mesh and liquid-like velvet.
Giving a nod to the lucrative feel of the material, we see the models in the Knorr show standing vigilantly around a large flowing piece of Lamé on the floor, the fluidity of it all and reflection of the lighting allowing the aesthetic glittering principles of the material to stand out on the models, giving them their appearance of deities.
Within the collection we see the use of elegantly layers, primarily focused around one shoulder dresses with a mixture of shiny black, neutral palettes and sanguine colours. Slit dresses and lengthy forearm wraps are also a feature alongside sequinned, and mesh tops and skirts completed with linear patterns throughout. Pointed-toe shoes are also present, giving the already lucrative collection a sharp edge.
Knorr’s feature of bauhaus inspired jewellery presents a welcome juxtaposition to the fluidity of her collection, as we see linear-inspired metallic ear pierces and a totally cool hybrid between a ring styled bracelet.
If you are heading to any award shows or big events this year or, perhaps, you simply want to look and feel amazing, then this collection is the one for you.
