A fashion collection can tell stories. Particular incidents which become universal. "Oh, I see, Twice" by Petra Ptackova is the story of an accident, a journey in the dark, searching for a way out from the chaos.
This story begins in Paris, in the neighborhood of Belleville, when a girl on a bicycle collides with a car, a life-changing encounter that will modify her way of seeing things. The crash makes her fall to the ground and everything goes black.
The girl hits her head and her eyes are unable to see as before. Her vision is doubled and she sees the world in a new dimension. From that day the girl will fight to transform this weakness into an advantage: a new way of approaching the world, with creativity.
Ptackova's collection speaks of this journey, with pieces that open up infinite possibilities in how they are worn, such as the coats that can be turned into backpacks or pants.
The shapes of the garments are inspired by the Second World War (one of the darkest periods of our history) and transported into a world where fairytale, sport and couture meet. A dimension of magic realism, where clothes are a form of art, in accordance to wearability.
