The Stage was set up in the middle of an empty, vast warehouse space in the west of Chelsea. The lighting was dimmed, lights pointing at the spots, where the models would shortly take their places.
After the models walked the full length of the stage, they came into a standing position along both sides, where one could examine the clothes more closely.
The collection was an array of grey tones, sporting heavy fabrics next to light knits and suits – a perfect mix between casual and strict, soft and masculine.
An almost playful accessory was found in the beautifully produced, dark brown backpacks and briefcases made of soft leather, the many scarves and hats. As a splash of colour the occasional checked shirt appeared underneath a well cut suit.
All together, an experience for the eye – the rough, dark ambience of the venue, the strikingly featured models and a collection, thats simplicity as it’s details were full of calm confidence
