KRALOVA_Design is the brand of Czech designer Zuzana Kralova settled in Madrid. Zuzana conceptually inherits the artistic bullish of the interwar period in Central Europe, and perfectly merges that legacy with the Mediterranean spirit, where color is making inroads and confronting in a constant struggle with form, an expressionist form that evokes an interior in a constant need of perfection. Kralova is committed to innovation and differentiation, with collections designed to the catwalk, and a clear inspiration in the art world, but also with garments that can be used for day to day wearing. Clothes that leverage cuts, concepts and solutions developed for prototypes, although adapted to a different use being the result of a thorough study of the female body. The brand mission is to satisfy the need for expression through the garment. This concept produces collections aimed at women who are far from conventional, for whom being one more is not a valid option, women with intellectual curiosity, wanting to risk and provoke to some extent.
