BERTHOLD Autumn/Winter 17 Presentation at London Fashion Week

Titled Asylum, the collection explores the rhythm of restriction  by scratches, scars and stitches on the skin, body braces and athletic tape coiled around arms and legs..

Proportions push and pull.

Dimensions meet and diverge.

Wide, desolate hospital corridors and angular shadows inspire a larger, languid silhouette for tunics and winter coats.

Thick rough bandages wrapping heads and masking identities translate into volumes delimited yet energetic. 

Taut body gloves are worn over wide leg trousers and sportif jackets have elongated, exaggerated sleeves.

Elbows are spliced open

Skinny trousers are split at the knee or corseted against the torso

Fuzzy, dimple, crisp – textures are taken from torn, soft leather and papers left folded and aged over time.

Rich felted wools and pitted technical fabrics are paired with fluffy mohair and easy cotton suiting.

Colours are polar white, heavy black and bruise.
