A PEEK BACKSTAGE AT HIEN LE SS18
Thursday 6th July, Berlin Fashion Week. Berlin-born designer Hien Le sent models down the runway for his SS18 collection in a looks that explore the poetry of dance. Le focused on the play between body and fabric, and the way in which dancers’ apparently effortless movements conceal strength and discipline.
Silks, cottons, and linens in shades of taupe, rose, and blue took on classic forms, exploring the subtlety of the body in flux; punctuations of saffron yellow injected bursts of energy.
Models wore sunglasses by Vienna-based brand neubau eyewear, continuing a design partnership that began in January 2017. The designs and tones perfectly complemented the determined elegance of Le’s collection.
