‘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 HUELLE No.30 S/S 2015 Part 2 ‘Art Rebels’ Looking at Karl-Heinz Weinberger’s photos of Rebel Youth inthe 50s and 60s I started wondering what they would wear if they, instead of hanging out in the street, were spending their time in Museums and Art Galleries. Bombers, Trenchcoats and separates in prints inspired by some of my favourite artists- Paul Klee’s multicoloured stripes, Michael Krebber’s watercolour paintings, the graphic works of Ellsworth Kelly and Wade Guyton’s irregular black and white stripes. Asymmetric dresses inspired by oversized T-Shirts complete a collection in which each and every piece work together to create a complete wardrobe.

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 HUELLE F/W 2013 ‘Egon Schiele’ Inspired by the paintings of Egon Schiele, this collection is about surface and movement. I wanted clothes that are easy but in a complex way, formal but comfortable, extreme clothes for everyday life – in a way the essence of what my collections have always been about. I also wanted an underlying sensuality, showing the body in unexpected ways.
