Gosia Baczyńska Spring/Summer 2015

Polish designer Gosia Baczyńska launched her company in 1997. The designer doesn’t draw, so she works directly with the fabrics. The latest collection “Black Spring” originated from the designer’s fascination with Henry Miller’s 11 Commandments. Gosia Baczyńska introduced the context of artistic Bohemia from the 1930s. She kept a playful mood on the runway. Gosia Baczyńska selected her favorite phrases from Miller’s text, such as: “Keep human! Go places, see people, drink if you feel like it” and “Don’t be a draught-horse. Work with pleasure only”, which she transferred onto blouses, skirts, dresses and shoes. They became a statement element in the designs. Gosia Baczyńska composed 3D experimental pleats sculpted or cut by a laser, prints reminiscent of typesetting, laces covered with foil and flock patterns, and jacquard knits. Most of the frocks stayed knee or midi length. Black, navy blue, pink, blue, white and mint-green were the main colors in the lineup. The rings were adorned with a typesetting motive and contained an encrypted message. Gosia Baczyńska debuted with her own shoes (sandals), where the same prints seen on the clothes appeared on leather and on the upper parts of vinyl. The box-shaped heels were wrapped in a printed leather with the typesetting motive. The shoes were created with the collaboration of Nunc. The collection presented exuberant, original and feminine garments.
