The 2017 Spring-Summer collection of Cukovy was inspired by op-art. As sublime it may sound as simple it is.
We play around just like Carlos Cruz-Diez is playing with colours and perspectives. We are looking for our limits in colours, patterns and materials. If we watch a Cukovy piece from a distance we recognise the motifs. When we go closer we can see the richness of details and if we go even closer, we learn the secrets of the materials.
But the harmony is turned upside down by the ragged jeans opposing the uniqueness of the luxuriously woven textiles. Twoness in one. As it is presented by Stav Strashko. Man and woman not separated. Female masculinity, masculine effeminacy. What is the difference?
