The Golden Thread Awards at Fashion Week Poland A/W 2011: Colourful Patterns

These designers work in very different ways, but they've all done the unthinkable (in Polish terms, from what I've seen) and embraced the use of pattern and colour. Meet Natalia Paliy, Domi Grzybek, Katharina Kubiak and Sofie Gaudaen.

Very few Golden Thread designers really embraced colour and pattern. But these ones did.

Natalia Paliy really set her own pace with a happy tune mashup and an eager parade of smiling models in summery flower prints sent straight down to the end of the catwalk in a phalanx. The styling was bloody awful but the prints were rather lovely underneath it all… who knows if she was responsible for them herself? And was this really Fall/Winter I ask you?!

Domi Grzybek paraded coral fitted jackets with gold sequin pants, slouchy 80s influenced numbers with wide shoulders, drop crotch nappy pants, plastic capes and patchwork body con dresses which had the air of Holly Fulton and Christopher Kane some seasons back. I liked the colour palette, but there was a major problem with poor tailoring: badly fitted bodycon dresses are never a good plan.

Katharina Kubiak‘s over the top womenswear styling was a total dog’s dinner but her printed mix and match aesthetic worked well on shorts suits for men. I liked them a lot… now she just needs to concentrate on what she does best.

Sofie Gaudaen ended the evening with a collection of neon rave shamans: barefooted models sporting plenty of feathers and fringing. I loved the colours but it was not the strongest showing of the night to end on…
