NYFW F/W 2019 - Jiri Kalfar

Czech designer, Jiri Kalfar, made his New York debut this month during New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2019. A lifelong dream to showcase his work on the runways of New York City, the designer recruited supermodels Paulina Porizkova, Linda Voitova, and Alina Baikova to support his vision.

The inspiration for the collection derives from Alexander Pushkin’s story, ‘Eugene Onegin,’ one that takes place in the land of long cold winters during a time when art, music, literature and the fashion of the high society were at its peak. Kalfar was inspired by the story and the fashion that took place in the lavish palaces of Russian aristocracy.

What makes the new collection unique is how these fancy garments were combined with a modern day twist. Kalfar collaborated with Czech company, Preciosa, one that is well known for its exquisite crystals. The hats featured during the show were provided by Tonak, celebrating the two-hundred-twenty-year-old history of Czech millinery. – GM
