Karolina Kurková Wears The Classic JETS Black One Piece

Iconic Australian label, JETS Swimwear, is bringing back the classic black one piece ~ the sleek silhouette, the ultimate in sophistication, and the staple that every woman needs in her summer wardrobe.

 

But effortless style comes with a ten month creation process of true artisan design. The JETS Sydney based design team carefully construct and craft each and every piece from scratch, starting with sketches, then inhouse prototypes, and most importantly, fittings on real women. Then they fit and refit until it is just right. Flawless on the outside, yet carefully constructed on the inside to ensure every woman feels confident and looks fabulous in swimwear.

Recently at the David Jones SS18 launch in Sydney, Karolína Kurková owned the runway in the epitome of the classic JETS black one piece. Timeless, iconic and sophisticated, JETS is bringing classic back!

Drawing from the campaign ‘House of Spring’, the highly anticipated David Jones Spring Summer collection took place at Sydney’s Fox Studios where 350 guests enjoyed the new collections presentation, and a sumptuous springtime supper. The space transformed into a flourishing greenhouse, capturing the essence of a new season awakened as the first hint of spring rejuvenates its surroundings, bringing the runway to life with the world’s best brands, ready for the season ahead.

Karolina Kurkova, a former Victoria’s Secret Angel and mother of two, has appeared on more than 25 Vogue covers internationally.

David Jones has celebrated the launch of their Spring Summer 2018 (SS18) season showcasing the very best of Australian designers and leading international brands.

A cast of over 45 renowned runway models was led by an all-star line-up including David Jones Ambassadors Jessica Gomes and Victoria Lee, and international supermodel Karolina Kurkova,international model and celebrity offspring, Anwar Hadid, and Sudanese-born Australian model, Adut Akech.

This season the runway looks were created by celebrated make-up artist, Victoria Baron, SS18 Makeup Director. Victoria has created a unique make-up look for the David Jones runway that reflects the seasonal palette using a range of some of the leading cosmetic brands available at David Jones.

“The beauty look for the SS18 David Jones Collection is inspired by the clashing colours and textures of spring time and the celebration of diversity in beauty’, says Victoria Baron, SS18 Makeup Director.

“Spring is a time of growth and renewal. There’s a huge focus on skin health and preparation for a fresh, hydrated and youthfully luminous complexion. Natural flushes of earthy bronze tones on the cheeks and eyes, brows are free and organically brushed, lashes are defined and lifted.

Partnering again with Aveda for the SS18 show, Creative Director Terri Robertson-Kirkwood will lead the Aveda National Style Team to create the hair looks.

Aveda’s National Style Team led by Creative Director Terri Robertson-Kirkwood created the hair look for the David Jones SS18 Collections Launch. This rejuvenated beauty look takes influence from the first hint of spring, bringing fresh energy, inspiration and the promise of possibility. While simplistic the look has a strong innovative elegance that compliments the vibrant SS18 collections.

“This hair look is all about deep conditioned, beautiful, healthy hair and this is reflected through the lustre and shine that has been created, which is also a current demand we are seeing from consumers”, says Aveda’s Creative Director for David Jones, Terri Robertson-Kirkwood. “We are seeing a trend for hair that is simplistic, as well as a desire for visually healthy and shiny hair. The Aveda styling products used help sustain this health and shine on the runway, regardless of hair type or texture.”
