The casual couture collection “A Breath of Nihilism” Spring/Summer 2018 is aimed at modern, urban, young women with an active personality. Conceptually, the collection is about the liberation of industrial perfectionism and the return to being casual, brave and striving for freedom.
A kind of romantic anarchy is created. This is illustrated by traditional costume elements, which are taken apart and reinterpreted. The collection’s delicate colour palette ranges from white and cream to the colour of the skin. The key colour is a bright sulphur green. Transparent silk fabric and foundation garments transport a contrast between lightness and tradition. Pearl embroidery and the processing of material in floral look are evocative of blooming flower fields. They are a symbol of volatility and transience. They symbolise passive devotion and humility.
