Me, the canny force – 2016

I consider swimsuits to be a medium pointing out on the clear clash between used aspects of a certain product and a conceptual approach. I got inspired by the Japanese pearl-fishers that used to wear special diving wrapping clothes. Via the printing, I transfer the wrapping onto the material and through the new features, I refer to the past. I also use other illusory elements such as fish or lines. My aim is to create an illusion of three dimensions on two-dimensional space. The material similar to the human body disappears, becomes invisible and refers back to the naked body without clothing.

Pavlína Miklasová *1991

I am the founder and art director of  studio Plove®. As one of the few fashion designers, I focus on all-Czech swimwear accenting innovative attitude and functionality. My collections are preceded by material experiments; by examining material in different contexts I try to define and reappraise both function and form of the product given. I have a special passion for working with the knitted & elastic materials. I graduated in 2017 from the Academy of Art, Architecture, and Design in Prague, Czech Republic – Fashion and Shoe Design Studio of Liběna Rochová.
