Paprocki and Brzozowski are the golden boys of Polish fashion who have previously won the coveted Golden Thread Awards, viagra sale and so they were given the pole position as last show on Saturday night. The venue was packed to the rafters and there were even some goodie bags on the front row seats, viagra dosage but any excitement soon died down on discovery of the contents: a fashion magazine (that I already had) and a brochure.

The designers: Paprocki and Brzozowski.

The show began with a cool mini movie of flapping doves, with the wing beats easily mutating into the already familiar melange of church bells, violins and heartbeats… which gradually turned into thumping techno. The models sported metal neck collars and cuffs, garish blood red and black fake tattoos wriggling up their arms – the only edgy part of an otherwise safe collection of black, grey and pewter metallic tailoring and ruffles. Hair was long and crimped, fuzzed out around the face. There were boxy cuts, cascading layers, sequins, lace, and splotchy ink prints. If I’m honest I struggled to see the connection between shapes. And someone please tell me, what is up with Poland’s love of grey?
