ACHTLAND AW 14/15

Piece of Me

“Gary Hume’s Walls” the working title of the AW 14/15 collection by the Berlin based designer duo Achtland. The title, a combination of the British painter Gary Hume and the walls of the Neues Museum, restored and recreated by David Chipperfield. The combination of Gary Hume’s use of the color pallet with the post-modern style recognizable in the walls, frescoes and flooring of the Neues Museum; are described as “a vibrant contrast to reduction that defines Gary Hume’s paintings”. A combination of inspiration, directly showable not only in the design of the collection but in the whole atmosphere; the use of fluorescent lights and the choice of location: the Bärensaal in Berlin Mitte. The old City Hall, with the symbol of Berlin, the bear sculpture by Georg Wrba, standing in the middle of the room with the models walking around it.

.

The collection is filled with different layers and these contain contrasting elements. The many layers of chiffon are shaped in a clean-cut elegance with a laid-back feel. The rough leather, quilted, with flower embroidery floating around with a smooth feel and the monochrome use of hard angled shapes in the fabric, together with hand painted prints. Achtland is well known for their high craftsmanship standards and selections of quality material; seeing the collection from close, this is recognizable.

.

Achtland; from the Irish – Celtic mythology, Queen Achtland whom was born mortal, elevated herself to Goddess status by marrying a God. She was dissatisfied by the voice of mortal men. The collection shows beauty and flow’s seamlessly into the Achtland aesthetics. It is best described as a follow up of last years collection and also a confirmation that Achtland is looking in the right direction.

 

She seduced, got married and become a goddess. But the hard part is to remain a Goddess, and this Achtland has proven not being a problem. I can see a bright future written in the skies.
