On the third day of Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019, Czech wonder child Jan Cerny presented his latest collection at the outside area of Letenska plan. Venturing off from the event’s main Baroque Clam-Gallas Palace venue, the vast space was opened to the public, allowing everyone besides those with “invites only” to attend. Held during the evening, the runway was lit up by an arrange of Mercedes-Benzs.
Titled “Ego Trip,” the collection plays on both the values of doing art for oneself as well as the more literal aspect of travelling. Incorporating both sportswear codes and classic silhouettes, Cerny’s edgy looks undoubtably showcases his creativity and attention to detail. Meticulously decorated with paintings from Cerny’s good friend, Slovak painter Martin Lukac, each look was then heightened with details such as 3M reflective strips and utilitarian elements including drawstring accents. Crossbody bags and sneakers done in collaboration with Prestige finished off the runway looks.
Before Cerny’s highly-anticipated showing occurred, the designer gave us a backstage look at the collection. Set up in an underground parking lot, the models were given ample of space to loosen up before the show, even taking a floor scrubber for a spin. Take a look at our backstage coverage of the Jan Cerny SS19 “Ego Trip” collection above and stay tuned for more designer content from Prague Fashion Week.
