LUTZ HUELLE S/S 2013 ‘Gestures’ I was thinking of gestures, poise – how a simple tilt of the head, a flick of the shoulders, the way one leg advances to balance the body, hands in pockets, can transform the most mundane situation into one of grace and beauty . The staples of an everyday wardrobe, infused with a “couture like” spirit : lowering the neckline and raising the waist, turning embroidered crystals into graphic prints, elongating a baseball jacket with silk organza, and cutting a parka in fluid crocodile print georgette.

Lutz on UNTITLED ‘Shrouded in satin, cottons and translucent patterns, Lutz Huelle’s Spring 2013 collection for Paris’ fashion week keeps cool with light fabrics while focusing on draped, fluid fabrics. Elegantly designed, some garments had a caftan effect while other outfits bared skin over zebra-printed hooded shirts. Predominately monochromatic with flashes of intense canary yellow, green and mauve, the collection remained thoroughly modern. Highlights from the show included a white strapless pantsuit ensemble, wrapped around the model with a trail of fabric extending from behind.’

Either way, he succeeded in creating a desirable collection on par with his previous work

Lutz Huelle on HUNGER TV ‘WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR THE LATEST COLLECTION? There was a girl standing in front of me in the line at the supermarket, striking the most amazing pose, really like one of those couture models in the 50s and 60s, hips tilted just so, head leaning to one side, arms slightly curved. It suddenly completely transformed the moment and made me think of how little it can take to look beautiful – just the way someone holds themselves, a gesture, a flick of the head. So I started thinking of the idea of couture, and the poise that comes with it, but in everyday garments- a trench coat, cut in swathes of fabric, or a biker jacket with a low plunging V neck. It turned out to be the most ‘couture’ or sophisticated collection I’ve ever done.
