Lutz Huelle had a lot of ideas for spring, all of which he packed into one collection. It started with the deep color palette of painter Paul Klee, which translated into linear prints on a faintly draped dress. Then aquarelles entered the picture; Huelle employed the black-and-white brush-stroke patterns most convincingly on a lapel-less trench that he styled over an electric-blue legging in stretch taffeta.
Oscillating between soft and feminine on the one hand, strict and masculine on the other, the designer also experimented with textures: a silk dress-turned-tank top with its lower part left see-through, and silk-polyester bombers embossed with a crocodile pattern.
It was too much to take in at once, and yet the collection had plenty of commercial appeal, including a versatile run of cardigans. Some were rather conservative, hand-embroidered with Austrian sequins, while others were knitted from long silk-chiffon threads, giving them a slightly ethnic vibe.
