This season, the talented brother-and-sister duo behind Dubai-based brand Poca & Poca, Wiktor and Karolina Gniewek, brings to life an imaginary fairytale starring a girl with a magical touch who spreads joy and beauty all around her. The Gniewek siblings translated this sugar-sweet story into a full Spring/Summer 2016 collection entitled ‘Once Upon a Time’.
The collection, carefully handcrafted in Poland, marks the continuity of the brand’s stylistic approach with its signature exaggerated silhouettes and iconic designs in a pastel-hued color palette. Newer elements like Swarovski crystal buttons in the shape of diamond dewdrops adorn jumpsuits and skirts and recall the inspiration behind the designs. Specialized calligraphy and princess prints, which were taken from the fragments of the story, were also thrown into the mix, resulting in a delicate and charming collection that is refreshingly romantic and gives emphasis to the invisible crown that every Poca & Poca girl wears.
Poca & Poca is available at Galeries Lafayette, The Dubai Mall.
