“..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

‘…Lutz Huelle fut assistant de Martin Margiela. Si une filiation peut se lire dans quelques détournements, point de pâles copies ici. D’immenses manches gigot se greffent sur le buste de vestons formels. Des panneaux de brocart ou lamé sont incrustés sur les devants de bombers, de vestes de jeans ou de parkas imperméables, leur donnant une allure folle et originale. Des jupes et des robes bouillonnées confirment l’orientation plus haut de gamme du designer allemand basé à Paris… ‘ Frédéric Martin-Bernard on Lutz Huelle F/W18 in LE FIGARO

“…What’s also happening now is that designers make clothes for people as opposed to making them for a fashion show, which has always been my main preoccupation anyway. Obviously, as these clothes are much closer to reality, it also changes the general aesthetic of fashion. I have never understood the idea of creating clothes for a fashion show and then selling something different afterwards. Saint Laurent and Chanel were such important designers because they dressed people above anything else, and that is what is happening again now.” Read Lutz Huelle in conversation with Pedro Canicoba in MANY OF THEM Magazine

“C’est drôle comme parfois le cycle de la mode vous rattrape au vol. L’Allemand – ou plutôt « l’Européen » comme il dit - Lutz Huelle est resté fidèle à sa signature (appliquée sur le cœur ou dans le dos des vestes en jean) depuis ses débuts, en 2000. Peut-être parce que son univers, nourri de ses années de jeunesse dans les nineties, rejoint l’air du temps, on regarde avec un œil neuf ses silhouettes de robes en soie « twistée », ses blouses à pressions qui tombent sur l’épaule, ses robes portefeuille en toile camouflage bordée de rose ou ses bombers qui muent en jupe longue de crêpe. S’il épaule façon aileron ses longues chemises de garçon sans manches et ses trenchs, l’allure possède cette féminité accessible et bienveillante. « J’ai le sentiment que, comme il y a vingt ans, tout est ouvert. Dans ce chaos qui nous entoure, tout est à réinventer », dit cet incorrigible optimiste au sourire lumineux.” Helene Guillaume on LUTZ HUELLE SS17 in LE FIGARO
