“…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

‚Plenty of designers these days have turned to patch-working garments together; what makes Lutz stand apart is that the results are not just for the look—they’re resolved into wearable garments with a French nonchalance about them. With his offering of gilded brocade narrow pants, you could imagine these clothes being the kind of thing you see young Parisian girls wearing in cafés and bars. As we know: They never overdress, but they always wear the right thing. Sarah Mower on LUTZ HUELLE F/W 18 on VOGUE RUNWAY

LUTZ HUELLE F/W 18 ´ How to change the silhouette of a garment without losing its original sense or use —a cinched waist in a denim jacket, a draped back in a cotton shirt, an elongated asymmetric hemline in a zipped jacket. I added panels of wool, lurex jaquard or metallic wadding at different points, pushing the volume to the front or back or simply changing the fall of a hemline. Last season’s rounded jackets have turned into shirts; and on skirts the volume has slid down just under the knee. Worn with a cinched waist bomber, they continue the idea of couture in a day- or sportswear context. The oversleeves are pushed even closer to the neckline, adding drama and poise to wardrobe staples like a woolen coat, a cotton popeline shirt or a tuxedo jacket. In the end, I wanted a collection with a sense of strength, positivity, and ease going into the future.
