Fashion designer Hien Le who is well known for his unisex-pattern and the easy going implementation of material, presented his Spring/Summer 2018 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin fashion designer and dedicated his new designs to the poetry of dancing.

The show started with a few looks in white: cotton shirts were combined with shorts and high waist skirts, flowing skirts and silk blouses in light pink followed. Up to this, a few male looks hit the catwalk and showed high-waist stripe shorts, loose shirts and jackets in beige. In both styles, Hien Le picked up his signature way of layering, for example by wrapping different shirts above each other. A free wrap details and some pleats recall the typical dancer's style, but by their clean cuts, they are also clearly Hien Le.

The colours were as delicate as the materials: Nude, beige and bright blue shades were supported by a bright safran yellow. The used materials, light cotton and silk, were decorated with handmade buttons from porcelain manufactory SCHOEMIG, who cooperated with the label HIEN LE and supported the new collection.

All the looks were combined with that one shoe, that probably never gets out of fashion: white sneakers. And it was not just the collection that brought us directly to a dance studio, it was also the music selection. The models danced over the runway to relaxed R'n'B sounds from Brandy's "The Boy Is Mine" and Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel".
