We could hardly say no when Antonín Soukup and Miroslava Kohutiarová, founders of LAFORMELA, invited us to collaborate on their latest FW19 collection. LAFORMELA is considered to be one of the leader brands of Czech fashion scene, celebrating success both in its homeland and abroad.
LAFORMELA is well recognized for its bold color schemes and graphic details, drawing inspiration from subcultures, history and outdoors. Their latest collections were close to streetwear aesthetics but FW19 is different. LAFORMELA has returned to its roots and as Antonín himself described, is more grown up now.
This collaboration was not about bags or backpacks as you might guess. It was all about caps. Caps and balaclavas. We love challenges and developing a new product is always an exciting journey for us. Especially when it is beyond our daily field of action.
Together with LAFORMELA we have designed a series of classic shaped caps and hunter-inspired balaclavas, ready to be worn separately or combined together. We have used various materials including a highly functional nano-membrane fabric as well as alpaca wool. All pieces are hand crafted in the Czech Republic as both NAUT and LAFORMELA value the local production.
The collection was presented at Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Week FW19 and you can check it here.
