The Best of 2018 .. this year we did the ‘New Look’ Bomber and the ‘Starbomber’. We exaggerated the volume of sleeves of coats and shirts and cut them close to the neckline, calling them Oversleeves . There were Bellcoats and Waterfall Dresses, Denim and Lace and Lurex Jacquard. Prints of Roses, Dots and Crocodile. And there was a T-Shirt printed with ‘First and Last and Always’ intercut with pieces of Lace, our favourite piece of 2018.

“…That’s also why I’m hopeful that things are going to be fine, in any case, because with everything that’s going on, people will react, and are reacting, to make things change. For example, the Everytown for Gun Safety movement in America — the scale of it is totally unprecedented, and yet it’s all been led by very young people. They’re saying, ‘take note, because we won’t vote for you, we’ll vote you out’. Those things didn’t exist five years ago. It will all be fine in the end. I feel hopeful.” Read Lutz in conversation with Rebekka Ayres in the latest issue of ZOO MAGAZINE

“..auf den ersten Blick mag es vielleicht verwundern, dass Lutz Huelle begeistert von Dingen wie einer Chanel-Jacke reden kann. Dabei macht er ja genau das Gleiche wie einst Coco Chanel, als sie die Jacke erfand: Er erschafft neue Klassiker aus dem Vorhandenen, das Chanel-Kostüm des 21. Jahrhunderts, wenn man so will.” Hella Schneider on Lutz Huelle’s Show at Berghain, on VOGUE Germany

“For the designer Lutz Huelle, combining fabrics or garments has become a signature, and a way of expressing difference. “We are not as simple as fashion wants us to be,” he says. “We are more complex. It makes you question.” Huelle founded his own label in 2000, after working closely with Martin Margiela, and his AW18 show had blue denim jackets sliced on the horizontal and matched with black brocade, and wool coats with vertical panels of metallic quilted lining. “It demands the person wearing it to be really open,” says Huelle. “When I first started doing it, it was difficult for people to understand. If you’re wearing these things, it’s about you.” He means the attention that will be received, the way the garment attracts curiosity. Like: “Why are you wearing two pairs of trousers?” Huelle says he also likes how these garments confuse signals. “People judge so quickly. They look at someone and what they’re wearing and think, ‘That’s who they are.’ But if they are wearing something that contrasts, you look at them and think, ‘I want to know this person.’ ” Maybe half-half garments expose the untruth we believe about our bodies — that they are symmetrical. Look in a mirror right now: one eye is higher than the other, shoulders slope differently, hips make us take an angled stance. Human bodies don’t all perfectly line up, why should clothes? ” Charlie Porter writes about “Hybrid” Clothes in the FINANCIAL TIMES

“…Paris-based designer Lutz Huelle, who was invited by the council to close fashion week with a “best of” his last two collections at Berghain Friday night told Merkel, “As a German living outside of Germany, I can just say we are so proud of you.” To which there came a lively round of “hear, hear.” His praise wasn’t meant as a political party endorsement, he explained to WWD. “You have to be proud of anyone who shows humanity in these times, and you can’t ignore the human aspect of her work.” Melissa Drier on WWD on Angela Merkel meeting with members of the German Fashion Council and Designers at the Chancellory in Berlin
