Denim is democratic and widely worn by everyone, regardless of age or gender or shape and this is why it is one of my absolute favourite things. Here’s a little selection of some of our past styles, each one made from a selected vintage piece and sold only in our online store and in selected boutiques worldwide. Every piece is unique, and they’re produced in very small quantities in our Atelier in the Rue du Temple in Paris 3. For me these are Collector’s items, to be cherished and worn forever.

2 days before the presentation of the Fall/ Winter 2016 Collection I decided to add a Bomber Jacket to the looks.. I had an idea of making a ‘double- breasted’ Bomber, inspired by a jacket used for fencing. To try out the idea I took my old Alpha Industries Bomber and cut out the front panel, replacing it with a piece of beige wool I had left over. I liked it so much that I decided to just put it into the show as it was , making versions in blue ( with red wool) and black . I also added a coat version. After the show every single store wanted to order these, so we started selling them without having any idea how to produce, seeing as it was made with an original Bomber jacket from Alpha Industries. I had no other choice but to call them and tell them what I had been doing, it turned out they had seen photos and wondered what this was all about- and a collaboration was born. I have since made a new version with the Bomber every season , but that first one, called the LUTZ BOMBER, is still so special to me.

“Huelle, a German who lives in Paris, is one of the most interesting indie designers in fashion, famous in a strange way for having his best ideas copied by many lesser talents. With this collection, it was about him respecting, and yet extending, the DNA of a house founded by the late great Alber Elbaz, a creator of clear and powerful codes.Thankfully, the result was a balanced cocktail of Huelle’s street style, delicacy with denim and sense of rock n roll, married to the hipster grand couture of Elbaz, blended with the one virtual show Alber created for AZ Factory.” Godfrey Deeny on AZ Factory with Lutz Huelle on FASHION NETWORK
