Paula Knorr London Fashion Week FW19
Represented by SPRING London.
In order to evoke the essence of comfortable, yet sensual, dressing, Paula Knorr’s SS19 collection plays with the contrast between volume and fitted silhouettes.
Through this exploration of extremes, Knorr reveals obscured shapes, together with figure-hugging silhouettes. Body-con one-sleeved ruffled styles are set in contrast to oversized cape-like contours and fluid feminine pieces which highlight Knorr’s signature cutting techniques.
Paula Knorr: London FW19

Fabrics include soft viscose crepe, light stretched cotton and shiny metallic lamé. Soft jersey gowns and light cotton tunics are fused with bold, Swarovski crystal embroidered mini-dresses and voluminous trousers. Illusion tulle is printed with glittery clouds to create translucent textures.
The colour palette combines soft pastel and crème tones with warm pink, oranges and steel blue. Transparent sequins and soft lamé fabrics are interwoven with light cottons to introduce a summery feel to the evening-focussed collection.
Multicolour Swarovski crystal banding is embroidered on draped shift dresses, creating a fringe like movement at the hem. The Swarovski crystals trace and accentuate the natural body lines, creating an illusion of movement.
Alongside ready-to-wear, Knorr has also collaborated with design duo RÄTHEL&WOLF to create statement jewellery featuring SWAROVSKI crystals in new ways; the minimal and bold language of the jewellery elevates the collection by contrasting with Knorr’s signature fluid shapes.
