Paris: German designer Lutz Huelle’s label has been slowly gaining recognition over his eleven years in business. He has won the ANDAM award twice and was chosen by iD Magazine to judge their Emerging Designer awards this year. As in seasons past, Huelle focused on draping for his spring collection. The organic shapes he created were elegant and flattering. He countered all the fluidity with sharply tailored outerwear and jackets, as well as slim high-waisted pants. Jewel embellishments and prints featuring oversized gemstones, in addition to amethyst and citrine tones suggested the idea of luxury was on Huelle’s mind. Either way, he succeeded in creating a desirable collection on par with his previous work. –Joanna Manganaro
