ERWIN MICHALEC - from the blog of Fashion Scout MONDAY, 23 FEBRUARY 2015
Emerging Designer Showcase AW15


At first glance, Erwin Michalec’s collection suggests medieval influences, but upon a closer look there’s references of the 4 elements water especially. He presents plain silhouettes illustrated by African tribal drawings. African and other ethnic cultures are consistent themes within his work so much so that this season’s collection overlapped slightly with his last, as he reused linen material and hand painted it with the image of a mechanical boat. He plays with the idea of combining ancient mechanism with African culture, “What would happen if Leonardo Da Vinci lived in ancient Africa?” he poses. Movement and fluidity are the reason behind the simplistic flowing silk silhouettes of tunics, by connecting it with connotations of water such as fish, sails and even sand he aims to design functional art. The designer admits that he doesn’t feel influenced by other big name designers, but rather looks up to the unsung ones.
