Moments de la vie
The Maisonnoée show is always good for a surprise and this time was no exception. The first appearance on the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin were two kids who rocked the house instead of walking in a way that left the audience jubilate. The following show was in no way inferior.
Both kids and women collection were inspired by the uniqueness and beauty of the moments we experience in our lives. Suitably the fabrics range from heavier quality like leather and cashmere to light and floating material as silk and lace with connotation to the fleetingness of seconds. This adds up to a collection that is defined by its variety and overall elegance contrasted by sporty and military elements like hoodies and camouflage prints referring to values like freedom, authenticity and conscious behaviour.
In terms of colour the collection is dominated by darker tones like black, grey, dark blue and green and completed by spots of colour like red, bright yellow and white - again reflecting highlights that brighten up our days. As typically for designer Sophie Oemus the Fall/Winter 2019 collection persuades by it’s clear cuts, feminine appearance and unagitated elegance that makes the designs special but at the same time very wearable for the sophisticated woman.
