“It might be that simple and irresistible with Huelle: an ongoing dialogue between plain and fancy. A raw-hemmed denim skirt paired with a green duchesse blouse with dramatic bell sleeves? Quintessential. A jean skirt twisted sideways worn under an immaculately tailored jacket with gathered shoulders? Lutz at his most direct. Though the cotton poplin shirt dress came a close second. The soundtrack was a jukebox of his favourite songs: “You’re So Vain”, Iggy’s “Lust for Life”, Britney’s ”Toxic”, the Slits’ “Heard it Through the Grapevine”. You can look forward to hearing those songs forever. Now imagine feeling the same way about your clothes. Or don’t, because Lutz already did it for you.” Tim Blanks on Lutz Huelle FW 20 on BUSINESS OF FASHION

Spring Summer 2017 Backstage at the Yoyo Club at Palais de Tokyo . This was what was dubbed the ´Club Collection’ in the Press,for me it was just a glorious mix of everything I liked , shown in the subterranean confines of one of the best club spaces in Paris. The collection had more colour than ever, and it marked the debut of the Couture Influence, visible in the orange jacket on Suzi. Photos by Giasco Bertoli

Best of 2019! This year was a strange one- on the one hand it feels that it has never been as important to be forward-looking and modern, on the other it seems that people crave nothing more than security and familiarity in a world that is increasingly less so. Even though there are few things I like less than looking back and holding on to the past, both my collections in 2019 were inspired by a longing for security: The idea of wearing couture-inspired clothes while doing mundane things like travelling (FW19) and my hommage to Paris (SS20) were both born out of a feeling of being grateful for the reassuring things in life. The Lantern Shirt and the Cape-Bomber, the Denim-Trench and the T-Jacket in Checked Cotton Twill over a dotted skirt in transparent tulle were some of this years favourite looks and my personal favourites were the long Fan-Skirts in Jacquard worn with black or white Mohair Sweaters from F/W 19 and the Men’s shirt in white cotton worn under a transparent tulle skirt from the S/S 20 Collection. I’m looking forward to 2020, in spite of everything. It’s always darkest just before dawn. Happy Holidays to all!

‘…He turned his focus on transparency, using an ultralight black mesh, often with polkadots, layering it over short, puffy sleeves, making them larger, or longer, and in one case, adding a chic touch to a light blue cotton shirtdress. Other times the layering felt a bit haphazard — those polka-dotted legs shooting out from under a thick trenchcoat were surprising in a slightly jarring sense —  likely his intention.  Known for his obsession with bombers and jean jackets — which he remakes entirely — for spring, he crafted an attractive and rather dressy version, cutting out the neck of a white jean jacket and replacing it with a sheen of the black see-through mesh, gently gathered and trimmed with a line of tight ruffles.’ Mimosa Spencer on Lutz Huelle SS20 on WWD

French and flirty, in the designer’s description, the collection proved he is not neglecting his namesake label Lest anyone worry…
