After discovering her talent at Central Saint Martins London, graduating from Esmod Berlin and interning at Alexander McQueen, French-Austrian designer Marina Hoermanseder presents her Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. The leather corsets moulded to the body, variations of leather straps and twisting buck- les as well as flowing fabrics are inspired by ortho- paedic support apparatuses, naked cats and brain structures. These themes are dominant throughout her designs.
The colour scale includes muted nude shades such as beige, grey, rosé and taupe and is accentuated by blueberry and green elements. Leather skirts made of straps and buckles are contrasted with draped blouses, elaborate leather capes combined with cashmere shorts and leather bodies with winter coats. Details like leather buckled sleeves put the designer’s individual stamp on the entire ready-to- wear collection. The fetish elements and progressive cuts of the clothing are bound to stir up the fashion industry.
