“… as the first model stepped out into the cavernous space -incandescent under the glow of splendid chandeliers – to a virtuoso string composition by Vivaldi, it was clear that nothing about this spectacle would be obvious or expected.” Devon Kaylor in SLEEK Magazine on Lutz Huelle’s Show at Berghain in Berlin

“I don’t like it when it’s obvious,” Lutz Huelle tells me about his designs ahead of his first fashion show in Germany last Friday night. Earlier that day, Huelle met with the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, before presenting a selection of his favourite looks from the last two seasons in the hallowed halls of Berlin techno Mecca, Berghain, for MBFW. The glaring juxtaposition of these two events proves that Huelle is nothing if not unpredictable. And, as the first model stepped out into the cavernous space — incandescent under the glow of splendid chandeliers — to a virtuoso string composition by Vivaldi, it was clear that nothing about this spectacle would be obvious or expected.

The normally Paris-based designer explains that he wants clothes to “pose questions” — he does not want to be able to sum up a person’s character just by glancing at what they are wearing. “What I really like is when you can’t dig up anything about who that woman is”. This sense of complexity is palpable in Huelle’s ensembles. There is an intellectual density and rigour to his designs that somehow translates into an effort to capture the multiplicity of female identity. “Fashion gives you the chance to decide if you are this person, or that person, or someone else entirely, or a mixture of all three,” explains Huelle. “It’s such freedom if you think about it, because if you’re born into a specific social construct, or find yourself in a certain situation, but you’re not that kind of person at all, you can show that by choosing not to dress like that.”
