JUSLIN-MAUNULA presents their spring-summer 2018 collection. Founded in 2015, JUSLIN-MAUNULA is a creative collaboration between designer Laura Juslin and architect Lilli Maunula. Bringing the functional nature of architecture to fashion design and the decorative aspects of fashion to spatial constructions, the brand’s presentations in themselves are powerful visual experiences where spatial installations often physically overlap with the clothes.
The JUSTIN-MAUNULA spring/summer 2018 collection is inspired by Interior design images from the ‘40s and ‘50s. The focal point being the fabrics which are; vintage wallpapers and curtain folding initiate the many striped motifs and ruched details. Elasticized-waistband pants, skirts or sleeveless tops are disturbed by the clashing nature of some of the fabrics. Unlined coats in bold silver foil micro pleated lame give the impression of a thick tweed fabric but are as lightweight as organza.
Glittery effects animate the striped silk and lurex layered silhouettes worn with matching gloves telegraphing an opulent and nonchalant total look. Graphic lurex jumpers and skirts with motifs inspired by Finnish Art Nouveau emit soft pink sparkles. Accessories play a key role, with jewelry closures adorning almost every piece in the collection.
