The Siren, by John William Waterhouse
Krystof Strozyna - Autumn Winter 2013
It is the first time that I have seen a Krystof by Krystof Strozyna collection. He graduated in 2007 from Central Saint Martins and was one of the winners of the Harrods Design awards.
Krystof is a designer who likes to combine new abstract prints each season with tailoring features that flatter the female form. This collection was inspired by aquatic life in all it's glory of simple and transient texture and shapes of eroded sand, coral and ship wrecks.
'The Siren' painting above by John William Waterhouse was the main inspiration for Krystof's colour Palette, utilizing the shades of green, grey , Burgundy, and black.
The Krystof woman enjoys her femininity and is confident in her own skin. She is not afraid to be noticed however likes a laid back stylish sexiness that only works when the clothes are body con simple and classic.
Stand out pieces for me were the body con panelled dresses. I also loved the billowing open sleeved zip jacket / blouse in aquatic green silk and viscose, a perfect look for Winter 2013...
The 'less is more' Krystof style really appeals to me, this collection is very wearable and dare I say will appeal to the Jill Sander/ Chloe woman for it's timeless classic lines. It would be hard not to look good it those dresses. I look forward to next seasons collection with great interest.
