The Ride of Kings

Inspired by the annual Czech folklore festival and celebration The Ride of Kings, an event on the UNESCO world heritage list, Chrobokova Lenka's collection of designs works with three motifs drawn from the event – the wrinkled sleeve, and the embroidered images of the horse and the rose on a silk organza. Updating the folkloric garments to a contemporary style that Lenka considers a sort of 'modern pomp', the designs take a minimalist approach, combining black viscose knitwear, the black organza and white silk taffetta in a structure of sharp lines and geometric shapes.
