A bit of everyday luxury
“Playing dress-up begins at age five and never truly ends.” – Kate Spade
“Don’t buy a ready-made item, order it from a craftsman” – how many times have you seen such an advice in various threads regarding outfits for a larp? Surely quite many. The larp fashion situation is getting more and more alike to the one we know from our everyday life. If you want a larp outfit that perfectly fits your body and style, you can have a doublet, gambeson or dress tailored by the best artisan and choose the exact materials, cut and colours you want. You have to pay an appropriately high price and have to wait some time until the order is realized (and it’s often the case that the better the craftsman, the longer the waiting period). More and more problems arise if the thread magician of our choice does not leave in our vicinity – but, for example, on the other side of the country. Still, when everything is over, our delight when we see our new set from Oak Stall, shoes from Jacek Karelus or a Mi-Parti dress is priceless!
“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” – Coco Chanel
Some time ago the world of grand fashion found a solution to the conflict between “I want to have unique clothing from great designers”, “I want reasonably priced clothing” and “I want my clothing right now”. That solution are prêt-à-porter collections – serially-produced (although usually, in short, limited series) outfits delivered to shops and signed by famous designers. And that is what you’re going to find in the 5 Żywiołów Store now: prêt-à-porter collections signed by the best Polish artisans and designers of larp and historical outfits! And the models you will find in those collections will be available exclusively in our store!
“A woman with good shoes is never ugly.” – Coco Chanel
First, let us present to you a real treat: two models of shoes created just for you by a real footwear magician from Kalwaria Zebrzydowska – the renowned and admired in the larping and re-enactment communities Jacek Karelus. Tall boots and the ‘cow snout’ type simple shoes will be appreciated even by the pickiest customers: a great design, the highest level of execution and the best materials – all of that makes for the highest-quality product, soon available in 5 Żywiołów Store only! One important thing – to emphasize the uniqueness of our prêt-à-porter collections and their exclusivity we decided that they won’t be eligible for any promotional campaigns and discounts, and we won’t add points in our store for buying them.

Of course – this is just the beginning. We plan to put on our shelves many more collections of that kind (await news!). Or maybe some of you are manufacturers and feel like it’s high time to present their own prêt-à-porter collection? We’re open to suggestions! Write to us on [email protected] – perhaps it can be a beginning of something awesome.
