Just back from my trip to Krakow, where I discovered some great wearable art. I stumbled on the J. Podlasek boutique, located on a small side street off of the medieval Old Town square.
The boutique had a great selection of gorgeous clothes made out of linen, cotton and wool, as well as handmade jewelry to go with many of the outfits.
Made by local artists, some of the pieces are hand-painted or made on a loom. I was drawn to the colorful inlaid yarn patterns on this long tunic.
How about a stylish blue felt cloche to get you through winter?
Aren't the patterns and colors on the coat and scarf ensemble below nicely playful?
One local trend: quite a few women wore orange shoes or sneakers. I even passed an outdoor photo shoot where a model was decked out in a black, backless dress and bright orange sneakers.
Even if wearable art doesn't dominate Krakow's streets, it's there. To see more handmade fashion, go to J. Podlasek.
