New York Fashion Week F/W12: Ohne Titel

Ohne Titel designers: Alexa Adams and Flora Gill with Binzento Vincente blog correspondent KO

KO was once again on an assignment for Binzento Vincente to New York City to cover bits and pieces of F/W12 New York Fashion Week
This time we decided to see Ohne Titel's collection at the all familiar Milk Studios, knowing that like my previous coverage on Suno, their designs won 2011 CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund AwardsOhne Titel is the work of two ladies: Alexa Adams and Flora Gill, both had previously worked for Karl Lagerfeld. The two reunited and launched Ohne Titel in 2006, since then their work were well received for their detailed and innovative designs.

The room was full, and like other shows, many media were there including The Satorialist and Fashion Television. Fashion designer Monique Pean and owner of ONA handbag designs Tracey Foster also attended. "COBALT BLUE, BLACK, GREY and WHITE" is the game for Ohne Titel latest F/W12 collection. Materials of printed silks, fox fur and knitted jacquards were used in combination to provide multi-layering architectural style. The focus on lining detail and textile graphic patterns on each of the pieces further displayed the intricate craftsmanship of Ohne Titel. The style safely emphasized the female forms, and slightly gave me the sense of "women in power".

My favourite piece of the collection (see below) is the graphic-pattern black and white checkers/stripes textile, asymmetrical zipper jacket with black and white stripes dress. I was joking with blog correspondent KO, as she communicated with me live about this collection, that somehow it reminded me of "arctic penguins". Regardless, it was evident that Alexa and Flora centralized their inspiration into a linear story, which audience may or may not remember.
