Emerging Czech designer Jan Cerny‘s Fall/Winter 2018 collection was among the top runway highlights at Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Week. The collection, titled “Sentimental Fear,” is inspired by horror movies, phobias and the eerie vibe of the technology age — themes that are emphasized by the lookbook’s digital aesthetic and dystopian vibe.
The collection itself mixes sportswear codes with a focus on technology (the 3D-printed spider web masks and technical fabrics) and utilitarian elements such as the drawstring accents, crossbody buckle straps and 3M reflective detailing. Tracksuits, statement outerwear, workwear-inspired gear and streetwear staples are united by a striking color palette of green, blue, red, black and beige neutrals. The collection’s sneakers were made in collaboration with Prestige, a local Czech workwear shoe label, while the leather bags were created in partnership with Carrynaut. Highlight pieces include the patchwork tracksuits, the glossy black oversized coat and the wax-coated trucker jackets.
