Designer Sedina Halilovic said Yves Saint Laurent was Holy Ghost’s major inspiration for fall, which was evident throughout the 34 looks in this young Munich-based label’s second Berlin showing. In contrast to last season’s light and bright palette, this one was all about black, charcoal and bits of burgundy. The opening look, with two bellhop-boys escorting a bell man’s cart carrying a model wearing a sharp black ponyskin coat, tuxedo shirt with bow tie, black skinny trousers and burgundy fedora set the tone for a series of well-constructed cocktail looks.
Lace was used in peek-a-boo ways, either to expose the back or reveal the décolleté. Still going strong was Holy Ghost’s signature jumpsuit, which was modified six times with either an open back, front pleats or tuxedo stripes. While certainly not for a day at the office, the red velvet two-piece HotPants suit with butt ruffles was noteworthy, yet Halilovic saved the best for last: a printed silk scarf gown in turquoise and emerald green, a limited-edition cooperation with Munich accessories brand Roeckl.
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
