This season’s mood for the (nude) collection A/W 18/19 features two inspirational themes: Hopi 2.0 reaches back to the days of native american spirit with bold coloured, fringed looks infusing it with european folk and vintage styles. A slightly rustic, crafted approach which is twisted and styled with glam and personality between ‘high’ and ‘low’, ‘old world’ and ‘new world’ .  Cultural exchange is the mood.  The second theme ‘Essential Attitude’ refers to todays way of dressing  where ease and wearability guide the line. Lots of comfortable and cozy clothes , mainly knitwear, with a great range of volumes to mix and match individually.  We want to break away from standardization and give each woman the possibility to customize the look. Silhouettes play with different proportions and styles for a powerful but sensuous attitude. Basics of the street-wardrobe like hoodies, oversized boyfriend sweaters and cardigans go with cropped trousers or fluid asymmetric silk skirts. Superfeminine ballsleeve sweaters with emphasized shoulders are paired with wrapskirts, highwaisted shorts and flared pants. Traditional knit-patterns as cables, ethnic jacquards, fair-isle knittings have been deconstructed and successively put together for patchworks in a cool and streetwise way . Details as fringes, the use of Lurex, logo –intarsia ribbing for necklines or contrast-coloured drawstrings add an either  sporty or glamourous touch to it. Colourful checks, pleated skirts and shirt-collars give a notion of preppy whereas laminated corduroy and crushed faux leather cheer up the look. The idea of ski base-layers like leggings and turtlenecks made from delicate silk stretch georgette in vibrant colours add a sporty but sexy twist to the styling. Colours are intense and feminine for a range that reaches from powdery blush, vibrant red, peony pink to deep burgundy, tobacco and eggshell. The ‘ethnic’ palette features blu navy, ultra-violet, violet, turquoise, greenwater, grey and black.
