When I walk on the street in Prague, I can see a lot of young people on a skate and bike. This young people need the most comfortable garment, where they can keep all their stuff, safe in backpack, which is not too heavy and does not obstruct in their fast moving cross the city. This aspect inspired me to create a mens jacket associated with the backpack, two things in one piece of a cloth. The accessories, to this garment, are socks and sweaters, and they are inspired by painter Frantisek Kupka

In my free creating I am interested in street style fashion, which can people wear everyday without compromise and fear, but still want to stay unique and different. In this project I have looked for the dynamics in fashion and how I could satisfy the nowadays needs of young people. They need to be free individuals, but still connected with friends and the public. They want to travel and move without barriers and a lot of things, just with their good backpack jacket, skate and good sneakers.
The biggest challenge for me, was create the new right technology and material because of perfect function of the garment. How to get together backpack like a storage and absolutely comfort jacket. I solved this problem with a harness, which hold full backpack on the right place.
