City Lights, City Nights

The fashion mavens of Poland know exactly where to go for the couture fashion experience. Natasha Pavluchenko’s eponymous label boasts a series of boutiques that are an innovative mix of design studio and fashion gallery. Here, you will not only find fabulous ready-to-wear, you can also place an order for a couture piece or take advantage of its styling service, all in impeccable surroundings. So, when a new collection is announced, you can bet that Poland’s beautiful people will be rushing to commune with the clothes over a cup of really good coffee.

Her new summer collection is entitled “Night Chic,” but forget the sun-sea-and-sarong look—this is dressing for a high-style summer in the city in a palette of black, white and red. Think glam evenings sipping champagne in a rooftop hot tub, or networking over cocktails at a fashion event. Or days spent catching the latest must-see art exhibition before meeting a client at the hottest restaurant in town. There are statement crystals galore: they stud cropped and laced leather jackets, and embellish satin-bowed sandals and evening bags; and they decorate beautifully cut crisp white shirts, and make sparkling focal points on luxurious lacy gowns and cute knit jackets. We especially love the elegantly Swarovski-crystallized swimwear. Featuring sheer panels and on-trend strapping, styled with silk scarves and heels, this is what to wear when you are invited aboard that yacht.

You can also find Natasha Pavluchenko collections on the couture circuit at showcases such as Alta Roma Alta Moda, Berlin Fashion Week and Monte-Carlo Fashion Week. And her talents have been put to good use in the wider design industry, including a Marbet furniture line and even the Fiat 500 interior! Look out for Pavluchenko’s creative vision—it’ll be heading your way soon.
