ALEKSANDRA VIKTOR LUXURY FASHION
ALEKSANDRA VIKTOR is a luxury fashion brand, founded in Berlin by Aleksandra Jagdfeld. Through one iconic wardrobe essential – the coat – Aleksandra’s designs take the customer on a journey: exploring heritage, tradition, culture, and a deeper sense of connection. They embody centuries old rituals and use hand-craft techniques to create the highest quality pieces reinterpreted for modern life.
Her debut collection consists of nine exceptional IKAT Chapan coats highlighted in a range of boldly curated sophisticated colours and patterns. All of ALEKSANDRA VIKTOR’s weaves are made in Uzbekistan, where each hand-woven fabric is uniquely produced under Aleksandra’s creative direction by a team of local artisans before the limited edition garments are constructed in Germany.
IKAT is a traditional weaving technique used in different parts of the world, where the yarn is dyed in sections before being processed on the loom. This treatment and conversion of the threads creates stunning, irregular colourings that become unique geometric patterns. This very rudimentary technique is recognised and used in various cultures along the historical silk road. The specific cloud-like patterns of an Uzbek IKAT coat, specifically on a Chapan style are unique to the region. Worn by men and women alike throughout Central Asia, the often oversized sleeves protect against cold and were an expression of polite withdrawal when showing bare skin.
Aleksandra was drawn to the Chapan coat for its versatility. The coats are timeless pieces that can be worn in a multitude of ways: casual or elegant – night or day. It’s a coat that transcends seasons and is unisex. It’s a collector’s piece for the discerning eye.
Selecting her colour palette from the rich shades of the Asia, five of the nine coats feature a bright white bases pierced with crimson, khaki and indigo threads, whilst mustard yellow detailing brings the prints to life – perfect for all destinations, these coats are equally at home in the city or by the beach. For the most adventurous dressers: the luxurious shade of aubergine with an inverted white circular motif on the ‘Juliet’ coat is much desired and the intricate rust and off white cloud emblazoned Chapan is a showshopper.
Aleksandra ́ s great goal is to support local manufacturing groups all over the world and help them thrive again in the era of fast fashion. The brand values the provenance and origin of fashion. The craftsmanship and tradition combined with sophisticated design are the fundaments of it’s spirit.
