About the designer

Paulina Ptashnik’s MESSIS ss 2015is a men’s and women’s collection which refers to folk traditions connected with the end of the harvest time, and the Harvest Festival. The Marian Feast combined with pagan rituals, thanksgiving character in connection with rivalry for the most beautiful traditional harvest wreath introduces a lot of contrasts. Collection Messis ss 2015 is a combination of tradition and modernity.

Forms of the clothes refer to casual wear of women and men working at harvest and therefore in the collection we may find 7/8 lenghts, raw trim. Golden details of the clothes refer to liturgical elements

Materials used: cotton, linen, batiste, cotton knitted fabric, leather. The collection is maintained in beige colours in combination with celadon and golden colour accent.

*MESSIS from Latin: harvest, crop
