Hailing from Poland, MISBHV has cultivated an aesthetic that has reverberated globally within streetwear and high fashion communities alike. It’s also been picked up by some high-profile fans such as A$AP Rocky, Rihanna, and Kylie Jenner.
For MISBHV’s first fashion show, designers Natalia Maczek and Thomas Wirski paid tribute to their homeland and its storied history by presenting a collection that took cues from the Polish poster art, bringing elements of Warszawa 1966 into 2018 for a riveting look at what this brand is capable of.
The show was staged at the imposing Palace of Culture and Science, which set a tone for the impactful designs that followed. For their SS19 collection, MISBHV worked with Polish artist Roslaw Szaybo, whose archive of dramatic prints were applied to a range of shirts, pants and outerwear.
“POLISH JAZZ” was a recurring text throughout the collection, being printed on silvery-white short-sleeve shirts and long shimmering dresses. Textures ranged from thick and reflective neon green patent leather to semi-transparent black coats with “WARSZAWA” printed in white and occasionally in reverse.
Some other key pieces included the oversized blazers which arrived in yellow-green, blue, and white, squared off at the shoulder, and styled with shorts for a very contemporary take on formalwear. Other pieces were more focused on nightlife with posters for Polish club events being printed on sleeveless T-shirts and tucked in to razor-blade print pants.
