Just in time for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, summer came finally to the German capital. So, fashion designer Lena Hoschek presented her Spring/Summer 2019 collection "Tutti Frutti", which can definitely be seen as a sweet temptation!

The audience was thrilled, because they'd love to get dressed themselves in Hoscheks new collection, which includes swinging summer dresses, tiny tops, airy  wrap dresses with romantic details, Carmen blouses and the well known ribbon skirts, whilst summer took over the city. Including Bossa Nova songs and a danced defilee.

To get the tropical feeling at it's best, the designer did a few plain Shirts with cute exotic animal prints like cockatoos or toucans - but by taking a closer look they turned out to be fruit arrangements!  Her new designs were not only about fruit prints, they were also about embroidered pineapple and lemon pieces. On top Lena Hoschek put stripes, sensational flounces and some clean but colorful pieces.  Serving  as  an  ode  to  the sun,  the  colours  range  from  precious  pinks, through vibrant oranges to beaming yellows. 

The collections highlight was the lemonade wedding dress, a bespoke couture gown of Couturier Thomas Kirchgrabner. It impressed with excessive draping and lots of silk taff layers of ruffles in fresh citrus tones. The perfect combination to the clothes were some playful basket bags by Nannacay. Nothing new, because basket bags are a huge trend this summer, but super cute and perfectly fitting into the collection!

For more than ten years now, Lena Hoschek is famous for her feminine retro style: Nostalgic but modern fashion in the style of the 40s and 50s. In her current collection, the designer combines traditional craftsmanship, precious materials and bold colors and masters to create a passionate intermezzo of palmtree leafs and fruits combined with refined silhouettes to transport the tropical and happy vibes straight into office wear and everyday life.
