Deca­dent With A Hint Of Fetish

Where Berlin - - SHOPPING -

Play­ing with the beauty of the un­con­ven­tional, Berlin-based de­signer Ma­rina Ho­er­manseder com­bines the fe­male sil­hou­ette with 18th-cen­tury or­tho­pe­dic el­e­ments. Tight-fit­ting leather corsets con­trasted with del­i­cate, flow­ing fab­rics and skirts made from buck­led belts are just some ex­am­ples of her un­usual style. The de­signer's first show at Berlin's 2014 Fash­ion Week was a great suc­cess, with Lady Gaga her­self plac­ing or­ders right af­ter. Ho­er­manseder's style keeps evolv­ing, and the 2016 spring col­lec­tion saw blue lac­quered breast­plates paired with a vo­lu­mi­nous leather skirt, how­ever also tak­ing a more fem­i­nine turn by adding dainty, leather flow­ers, and porce­lain-in­spired pastels into the de­signs. Her col­lec­tions are al­ways col­or­ful and lively, and to make things more play­ful, one of her lat­est lines in­cor­po­rates el­e­ments from Hello Kitty, a child­hood pas­sion. Lobeck­str. 36- 40.
