Ive always been surprised by the amount of beautiful women that pile into Lena Hoschek show . Its like magic all of a sudden the lobby of the tent at Bradenburg Tor is swarming with gorgeous curves wearing past Lena Hoschek pieces that they know by name. Horschek certainly knows the female figure inside out and her designs lovingly embrace a womans attributes and gently shows them off. Its certainly a sexy sight and I mean it in poetically painterly sense of the word.
Bringing the unmistakable signature charm and flair of her designs to the German catwalks, Austrian designer Lena Hoschek opened this year’s Mercedes-Benz Berlin Fashion Week with a stunningly seasonal Spring/Summer 2016 collection inspired by the French region of Provence
With designs bearing quaint names like Plaisir, Rendezvous and Paradis, the Mediterranean influence of southeastern France was clearly evident in the wonderful selections of colours, the paisley and floral prints, the exclusive Toile de Jouy fabrics and the delightfully feminine cuts and fits.
The striking knee-length summer dresses, loose A-line dresses with ruffled collars, floaty patterned skirts, light blouses and off-the-shoulder tops all have an air of typical rural French nonchalance, and ooze with romantic bohemian chic.
Accessorising her models with straw hats by MissLilysHats, ribbons, light scarves or on-trend floral crowns, the collection is relaxed and shows off Hoschek’s signature vintage style picked up from her time interning with Vivienne Westwood. The attention to detail is perfectly tuned all the way down to rustic wooden shoes, retro bags and Lena Hoschek slingback pumps.
