C’est Tout designer Katja Will may have been conservative with her monochrome palette, but this collection, dubbed Poesie Noire, was no-holds-barred in its brazen sexiness with sheer chiffon, skintight leather and silver nipple tassels as central features. Translucent black bow blouses worn with wide-brim felt hats gave a nod to the Seventies, while more contemporary looks included a jet-black leather pencil skirt paired with a long-sleeved black jersey top, and black city shorts with a military style jacket. Gothic elements came in a floor-length black cloak with leather panels on the shoulders, not to mention lace detailing and a spooky black veil. And given the label’s loyal following in Berlin, those black leather turbans that topped off many of the looks will likely be seen around town come fall.
