Fashion designer Antonia Goy and architect Björn Kubeja, the two creative heads behind the label, continued with the ideas of their winter collection „Alien Nation“, which was already inspired by childlike curiosity, open-mindedness and the unconcerned interest in all stranger things.

Right at the beginning, bright colors like orange and signal red as details like belts, ribbons or shoes popped up collectively with stripes and powerful plaid checks and caught the audience’s attention.
It went on with flowing long dresses, dresses with asymmetric front parts, feminine high waist trousers, wrapped pants and skirts, oversized blouses and bold coats with sharp silhouettes. By the use of asymmetries, cut outs and transparencies the designer duo build architectural volumes and recreated the proportions of classic patterns. Light cotton, textured batiste, flowing silk crepe and viscose were used as materials.

To that color bang at the beginning, followed black, white, blue and green as main colors. After a short break, the models used to pose for the photographers, a wild mix of prints, polka dots and even more stripes followed as well as a change of the shows mood. Instead of simply walking along the catwalk, the models suddenly began to take selfies with individual viewers in the audience, took seats between the guests and started dancing on the catwalk. So much fun in the early morning is rare at the fashion week, but Antonia Goy has not only proven a sense for great fashion, but also a feeling of joy. And this is one of the most important – but unfortunately, too often forgotten – things in fashion: it should be fun!
