Tillmann Lauterbach S/S 09 showed in Paris and Tillman was inspired by his last trip to Addis Ababa Ethiopia. The collection reflects how we deal with fallen grace and the lost identity of our times. Lauterbach hopes his clothes will arouse us to change direction.
The suits are roughly tucked and belted at the waist, emphasizing a reclusive attitude. Shoulders are oversized revealing the handmade shoulder pads as a form of modern embroidery. These wears are meant to be works in progress allegory for the state of transition that the world seems to be stuck in. Special bleached and coated Italian nappa completes the vintage silhouette, which adds an exclusive texture and polish. Tillman Lauterbach gives us a simply funky collection that is wearable.
