Founded by Berlin-based designer Aleksandra Jagdfeld, new fashion brand Aleksandra Viktor has introduced its debut collection—a series of Chapan coats tailored in Germany and created using traditional Uzbek Ikat weaving techniques.
Motivated by the birth of Jagdfeld’s son, Viktor, the Chapan coats—a unisex, calf-length boxy overcoat style that can be worn day or night—were designed with the “Power Women” of Berlin in mind, taking into account their varying backgrounds, professions, and ages. Available in combinations like pink, turquoise, and black; white, blue, and yellow; and navy and white, the coats (which can be styled loose or belted) serve as the perfect outerwear statement piece for the sophisticated, color-loving professional.
Featuring a series of 9 bold, geometric patterns, the designs have been created using modern takes on traditional Uzbek patterns, and are made with the Ikat technique, in which sections of yarn are dyed before being processed on a loom—for a resulting variation of unique, geometric, cloud-like patterns. Each hand-woven coat is composed of materials made specifically for the collection, including the beautiful printed cotton outer shell, and a 100% silk lining.
