Our Prague-based Contiki Insider Martina Vackova returns for the penultimate instalment in her introductory guide to the young, stylish denizens marching to their own sartorial beat on the cobblestoned streets of picturesque Prague.
Martina, a 25 year old personal style and fashion blogger, cross-fit junkie, paleo devotee and leader of an envious life, snapped the following well-dressed Czechs around Area Letna, her favourite area in the beautiful city, which she describes as being “surrounded with two large parks, one of which has famous beer garden with view over whole downtown area, the Charles Bridge and the Prague castle and still very close to city centre.” Ideal situation alert.
In a reliably stylish Weekday shirt dress, a Rayon Roulette vintage belt and a Need Supply coat evoking the broken television aerials of childhoods gone by, Julie was snapped on her way to a work meeting look like the epitome of business casual; if the office you worked in was as fun as the memories that coat evokes.
Putting the rest of us to shame, Renata is on her way grocery shopping in a romantic H&M coat, a throwback cloche hat from Zara paired with trousers also from the Spanish retailer, second-hand knee-length riding boots and a Playbag bag.
Straight outta some fantastic Victorian-era 90s Disney animation, the charming Hanka was papped by Martina on her way out for a lunch, wearing a radian Yves Klein coat from her own label Lazy Eye, atop shoes by Justin and accessorised with the sweetest thing.
Zuzana is the best possible advocate for her own brand ZK, wearing her own graphic designs and shoes from stalwart retailer for the young and achingly on trend, All Saints.
On her way to enjoy some mulled wine in Letna Park, Nikol wears a coat and sweater by Bershka finished with jeans by H&M. That’s a mulled wine weather sweater if I ever saw one.
Looking a preppy vision in an All Saints peacoat and a radiant H&M sweater, Lubos and his jaunty mo’ were scouted on his way to hang out with a friend. His plaid shirt is by Cubus, and his all-weather boots were fashioned by Autograph.
In another H&M coat, Topshop jeans and shoes by Aldo, Adam is dressed to impress a potential client and lock in some brand new bid’niss.
Again, putting both you and I to shame by being both effortlessly well-dressed and thoroughly prepared, Lukas gets a head start on his Christmas shopping in a vintage motorcycle jacket and Docs, paired with Topshop basics.
Looking like a high-vis good time, Miro poses alongside his ebullient bicycle while wearing the universal uniform of Lee jeans, a vintage Wrangler jacket, statement socks by American Apparel and Dr. Martens Monkey boots.
