George Styler: A Network of Inspiration

It’s such a delight to see a designer progress in their artistry, especially when you’ve admired their work in the very beginning stages. You may remember Belgrade-based designer, George Styler from my exclusive interview here, about his previous collection, Captivity. Since then, his work has taken a global tour all on its own, including the infamous bird dress being praised in numerous style shots and high-fashion glossies. 

The designer recently presented a new collection at Belgrade Fashion Week. This time he showcased his autumn/winter 2014-15 line entitled, NetWork. After catching up with the designer, I thought that I would do a follow-up on the progression of his work and share it with you.

A sort of avant-garde fairytale, examining similarities in human connection is how you could describe NetWork. Inspiration behind the line fused the concept of the general relationship with people, society, and cultures. “In this collection, I turned to the modern society individual that lives in a virtual [world] not the real world. I wanted to present how much we are connected, and to hint at the negative sides of the modern way of living where we face a total communication breakdown,” Styler said. 

“ the individual resembles a fish trapped in the net or the fish swimming in the everyday routines, unconscious of the beauty in which it should live and create.”


At first glance, you can see a vast amount of cultural references, including influence from Africa, amongst others. But, it’s the intertwining of elements that’s such a vital part of the collection, as well as the interpretation of diverse networks and association between people. 

Other essentials such as, coins and handmade decorations are also used for symbolism. Styler took beads and coins from national costumes (resembling scales) to create imagery that exhibited natural wealth. Leading resources in the collection consists of knitting with 3D materials and modern techniques of printing—thus, “creating a parallel between the past and the future, posh and alternative, orient and west, land and water,” Styler said.

  10. This is certainly uniuque and such a creative use of different textures and materials such as the coins. The colours are so rich too and I imagine the last two designs must have taken quite sometime to create.
