‘The Best German Fashion Designers’ Markus Ebner on Lutz Huelle @Goethe Institute: ‘Whoever markets his fashion for fifteen years simply under the first name “Lutz,” as Lutz Huelle does, likes to stick to essentials. He needs neither distant historical periods nor geographical preference for inspiration: he finds it solely in the garment itself. Huelle works away with painstaking attention to details, transforming them in unconventional ways and modernizing their traditional function without much fuss –but with high standards, especially for himself. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the designer, who was born in Remscheid, and his collections were always better located in Paris – where he has lived for quite some time – than in Germany. Lutz Huelle made a name for himself in the nineties as Wolfgang Tillman’s model and is a mainstay of the photo artist’s creative gang.’


Lutz’ Sketchbook for F/W 2011 on Filep Motwary’s UN NOUVEAU IDEAL. ‘Dear iDEALS, one of the designers I am mostly fond of is Paris-based Lutz Huelle, whom I interviewed sometime ago for Under/Current magazine as well as for Isterografo. At the time Lutz sent me some wonderful material, archival photographs and lots of other un-revealed content. I am posting some photos that never made it in either of the two publications in which our conversation was featured. Un nouVeau iDEAL reveals Lutz’s sketchbook for Fall/Winter 2011\12…’
