We have walked around the designer stands and discovered some new talents presented here for the first time.
An almost aristocratic charm and an unrivaled volume production for this New York label, which definitely promises to be talked about. XXL cuts, opulent and graphic materials, a luxurious DNA, this brand acquires its reputation due to its ultra-contemporary feminine tailoring. A perfectly mastered game of masculine-feminine completes its strong brand identity, launched just two years ago by the designer Suk Chai.
In the same vein as its predecessors, from Martin Margiela to Raf Simons, Enes restores the name of Antwerp fashion houses, unveiling an edgy line of leather pieces. He works leather so that it becomes as supple as cotton. For summer 2017, the label explores the wardrobe of a female urban adventurer, from Monaco to Santorini, everything is revised in a delicate and subtle manner.
DOMOKOSCH is a womenswear label designed by Katharina Domokosch. Katharina studied at Central Saint Martins and previously at the London College of Fashion. She cut her teeth at Hussein Chalayan, Peter Pilotto and Nike before launching her label. Her work has been featured in Vogue, WGSN, Swarovski Visions and Stylebubble amongst many others. This collection draws on ceremonial dressing, religious rites and celebrates the heritage and raw beauty of the alpine landscape.
Lilly Ingenhoven is a young fashion designer who studied at the Academy for Fashion and Design (AMD) in Munich, Germany. She was awarded the AMD Best Graduate Fashion Award by Luca Strehle (CEO Strenesse), Kerstin Weng (Editor in Chief Cosmopolitan) and Michael Sontag (Designer). Established in 2013 in Munich, the label offers luxury ready-to-wear products ranging from evening dresses and skirts to perfectly fitted blouses that are made to last for a life-long love.
