CUKOVY’s SS18 collection was inspired by the Hungarian National Gallery’s exhibition, Modern Times. The designer found inspiration in artworks of Hungarian artist Sándor Bortnyik, who is successfully playing with the elements of futurism, expressionism and cubism.
CUKOVY is mixing practically ladylike, comfortable garments with joyful, shiny and brave aesthetics. Special attention is paid to exclusive materials and meticulous tailoring: printed organza, seersucker, calico, spangle, leather and net fabrics are breeding the versatility of underground couture style. Exciting colour blocking dresses, vivid pouches, slightly bomber and leather jackets as key pieces are evoking cool femininity.
One of the main line of the collection is the details’ variability inspired by the popular DIY movement: shoulder loops with colorful leathers are removable or changeable, the suspenders can be turned into belt or something else. The concept is built around inspirational sources blending sporty masculine and sophisticated feminine elements.
CUKOVY was born in 2014 from the encounter of Lívia Tálosi and Brigitta Csukovics. Their label is characterised by forward-thinking garments merged with a rebellious, futuristic view.
Contradictions dissolve and endpoints meet in their collections, where functions interchange and non-fitting textures merge. The dual, mellow and exciting garments follow contemporary trends and exciting new solutions, embedding the vision into the art discourse.
