Much to the thrill of HUGO BOSS fans everywhere, the Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show streamed live yesterday from Berlin Fashion Week. If you missed it, you can still catch the video on hugoboss.com.
Karlie Kloss opened the show which was presented at Berlin’s hallowed “Old Masters Museum,” the Gemäldegalerie. The HUGO Mens and Womenswear collections were showcased on a glossy white 400-foot long catwalk by more than 30 top international models, including Kloss, Joan Smalls, Liu Wen and Mathias Lauridsen, to some 800 invited guests.
The show opened with a wearable mix of black, white, and pops of bright purple pieces for men and women, including beautiful streamlined coats, fur vests, slim pants, and pencil skirts. Sleek, minimal, and mostly monochromatic, there was nary a ruffle, print, or pleat in sight. The second half of the show introduced a touch of color in the form of pink, orange and geometric prints.
What this collection excels at is introducing timeless, artfully tailored pieces in silhouettes that are clean and reductive. Modern styles that have been interpreted afresh to create a look that is both minimalistic and luxurious that can easily be incorporated into any well-dressed woman or man’s wardrobe.
Packing a star-studded punch, the front row consisted of Julianne Moore, Georgia May Jagger, Sky Ferreira, Pixie Geldoff and Jared Leto (among many others), as well as star blogger Bryanboy who served as a backstage host of sorts.
