Paris Fashion Week—Tillmann Lauterbach SS’13 Collection
West meets East in Tillmann Lauterbach men’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Inspired by a trip Andy Warhol once made to China with his photographer friend Christopher Makos back in the 1980’s, the collection takes the post punk aesthetic of Warhol’s New York and melds them with classic Chinese wardrobe structures. And more—Micro Jacquard jersey on tops and trousers, Italian canvas bags, rubber coated short sleeved summer coats and beautiful prints also allude to the influence of the industrial revolution. The collection showcases midnight blues, various shades of grey to black, dashes of-off whites and khakis, and a pop of Tibetan Turquoise. The construction of the silhouettes lend to the mood as well, providing a relaxed feeling to even the most formal of pieces.
