COCKEREL is not what it seems.

Five outfit s expanding into the world of objects\, adopting the morphology of plastic crates in puff printing\, or transposing their structure into the details o f the pleating of a skirt\, a blouse\, the sleeves of overalls… This is the pilot collection from COCKEREL by Lenka Kohoutová.

And in re turn a vase\, a designer object that has lent clothing the technological es sence of weaving\, and yarn winds round its curves line by line. The object enters into a direct dialogue with the woman and becomes part of her outfi t. It displays attributes previously seen as something that people do – it gets dressed (or is dressed).

It’s about establishing equilib rium rather than grabbing attention\, which is strictly divided between clo thing\, object and space. Individual items of clothing are redefined in the ir fundamental forms – blouse\, skirt\, trousers and their derivatives. It’ s about looking for the essence of clothing as a covering for the body\, in confrontation with other objects in a particular time and space.

The strong “rooster” colours p oint to the planned development of the brand\, but they also evoke the spir it of the 1960s\, and besides the power of their primary colours they also possess impact\, dynamism\, drive and confidence.

In Lenka Kohoutov á’s designs there is something constant\, something that prevails – the wor ld\, circumstances\, moments – working in a system that functions in its pl ace and time. In COCKEREL nothing exists in isolation and everything intera cts. The basic structures and colours of plastic crates have been imprinted into the anatomy of the clothing\, and the body comprises the substance of the form and gives shape to the prints.

In the designer’s personal story the moment has come for her to present her unique concept and collec tion and launch her own brand. This move is above all about the need to cre ate. She offers a collection that simply IS\, take it or leave it\, and for the customer this display of freedom is uniquely refreshing and daring.

\n

What we wear makes us who we are\, or who we want to be. If the desig ner’s ambition is to treat clothing as individual items\, this is less abou t elevating each item than letting COCKEREL come into our lives piece by pi ece.
