The designer allows herself to break with monochromes in order to accommodate prints that could be described as a mix of pop art and Kabuki: a white canvas covered with colorful brushstrokes or with very fine paint lines. The vibrant colors in this collection range from blue to yellow, with the occasional splash of deep red. Laurèl`s colorful works are printed directly on the fabric, which leads us to the other trend in the collection, which has its raison d’ être in the work of Schwaiger’s husband, Munich based artist, Jo Netzko, blurring the line between art and fashion.
Laurèl presented the collection at Berlin’s historic Brandenburg Gate. As we can see in the video, the presentation was the perfect excuse to bring out Germany’s fashion elite. ■
