3,2,1, PLOVE!
The swimwear as synthesis of material and form

The diploma project by Pavlína Miklasová called 3,2,1, PLOVE! is a result of a long-term process in the visual, technological and social-cultural respect. Her inspirational sources result from concrete experimental architecture and conceptual arts, which has a close relationship to nature and actual climatic aspects. Human, present in its natural and artificial environment, is the embodiment of always different needs for clothes. In the concrete field of swimwear design, this brings her to the necessity of specifying its purpose and function more accurate. The examination of conceptual, material and processing levels was objectified in the new concepts of swimwear design.

In her world, she is always conscious of connections in today´s instant world. Besides her contact with contemporary technologies and constant investigation in this field there is always present her interest in preserving and connecting the traditional techniques and combining high-tech and low-tech attitudes, and furthermore, all of this carried out with an amount of joke and intelligent friskiness.

Swimwear as a product and an experiment. An innovative swimwear design pioneer.

_From the land with no sea_




“During my studies, I have become interested particularly in swimwear for several reasons. One of them was my relation to the water as both unrestrained and at the same time soothing natural element. Firstly, swimming is an activity, where body and mind get harmonized and under certain circumstances, it might become almost experience of the transcendental character. The founding of my own swimwear label was the opportunity to share those specific emotions with others through this unique garment.


Secondly, I perceive the limitedness of form and material as a challenge and an opportunity for innovation. My goal is to cover both the history of the material used for swimwear production and the current tendencies and possible future transformations or functions of this piece of clothes.”
