In his final collection for Rena Lange, designer Carsten Feilitz drew inspiration from artists Piet Mondrian, Hans Hartung and Frank Stella. Their minimal and graphic legacy offered a template to further refine and modernized the house’s iconic style elements: reducing the bow to a crisp, linear tie; squaring the bib-front blouse; and taking a more graphic approach to the  placement of fabric appliqués and Lange’s hand-crafted fabric pastiches.

Feilitz also built up the luxury quotient in a more geometric manner, adding shimmering rectangular panels down the front a little black shift, or black lace decoupage on a damson turtleneck dress. It’s a period of change for Rena Lange, with Annick Gorman poised to take over design leadership and Rudigier & Partner the new Austrian owners. As for Rena Lange’s commitment to luxury, Sigmund Rudigier promised “there will be more, not less.”
