LFW : The artistic journey of Roksanda


For her FW17 collection Roksanda Ilincic took her inspiration from the artistic movement Dada and also in the culture of nomadic populations.

The designer has once again played on opposing confrontations, contrasts, she mixes with a perfect balance of opposing themes like traditionalism and modernism. For next winter, it’s a culture shock, an intertwining of two totally different universes that brings together the warrior woman Roksanda: Masculine / Feminine, Artificial / Organic, Eclectic / Classical or West / East … a marriage of opposites Creating a new beauty.

Signature of the designer, work on the feminine silhouette and its forms is renewed with an innovative synergy of volumes, shapes, cuts and colors.

Oversized laminated wool coats and quilted fabrics contrast with romantic and feminine laminate pleats.

Dada paintings are found on clothes thanks to textured and tactile laminated fabrics, the result of a true technical research.

Crepe or organza pleated dresses contrasts with the bamboo silk satin jackets decorated with leather cords and glossy enamel.

These fluid, broad, comfortable, flexible silhouettes undeniably refer to the nomadic locker room with traditional earthy colors such as ocher, honey, chestnut, clay, but also black and cobalt.

The collection is accessorized with leather caviar bags in shades of cherry red. The boots made in collaboration with the famous house Malone Souliers take on the Rothko tones of the collection and are dressed in cotton stringers and curved heels.

Exploring an emotional sensory symphony, Michael Nyman, a minimalist composer and one of the most innovative and famous British composers, joins Roksanda to accompany his discovery of a nonconformist refinement.
