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!
