PASKAL Autumn-Winter 2017-18 collection is a personal story. As she spent the final month of her pregnancy in Tel-Aviv, Julie Paskal was exploring the city. She was admiring the architecture, interacting with the environment and making notes. The inspiration for the collection followed: Tel-Aviv’s retrofuturistic Bauhaus with its awkward curves, shapes, and textures.
Julie uses technical materials: milk-white lace, enclosed in transparent vinyls, and 3D-flowers made of reflective fabric. The contrasting color palette of the collection is a reminiscence of the contrast between stone and subtropical plants, urbanism and nature. Black is the dominant color confronted by a bright splash of greens: mint and apple green, as well as white floral lace and atlas print, both revealing the purity and innocence.
PASKAL AW17-18 collection is an exploration of the internal and external movement, a reflection of Julie’s own feelings and the environment around her.
Paskal is renowned for delicate silhouettes and minimalistic shapes, which are reminiscent of innovative architecture and nature. Beauty is derived from the garments core components and construction, laser cutting is at the core of the brand’s DNA. The result is sensitive design with a strong personality. In 2010 architecture graduate Julie Paskal launched her brand PASKAL. 2016 was the turning point for PASKAL when Julie was honored to have her SS16 collection featured in the display window at Colette in Paris and she presented her AW16 collection at Paris Fashion Week.
