For fall 2012, Ohne Titel‘s Alexa Adams and Flora Gill found inspiration in the works of fiber artist Sheila Hicks who is known for her sculptures made out of tightly woven fabric, including everything from newspapers, used clothing and other textiles.
The fascination with textures and weaving techniques was immediately evident in the first look–a monochromatic skirt/jacket combo, featuring sporty looking piping and contrasting patterns. More monochromatic looks followed, including a silky, glammed-up version of track-pants paired with a leather and fur top.
Cobalt blue (a color we’ve seen a lot of) soon burst onto the runway in the form of abstract black-and-blue patterned dresses, and graphic print frocks and suits. A particular favorite of ours was the cobalt blue suit with black contouring that will make any wearer’s body look like Gisele’s.
