Ohne Titel AW13/14

It was a busy but productive trip this time around in the Big Apple for AW13/14 New York Fashion Week. One of the few shows that I went to this year was Ohne Titel's presentation at the Milk Studios few days ago, which I got to sneak around backstage and took photos. 
It was definitely a very different collection than AW12/13's, but in a good way - taking inspirations from Tauba Auerbach and created lots of interesting elements. The use of light red on the runway was a surprise, since it didn't seem like a color of choice for fall.  However it worked wonderously in combination with darker tone colors such as olive, navy blue, and black in the collection as a whole. Ohne Titel's designers Flora Gill and Alexa Adams heavily focused on integrating square knits to represent mathematical grids and lines that added space and time dimensions into their pieces. Sounded simple, but in fact these minimal details gave the collection more depth and complexity. 
I especially love the leather head pieces on some of the models - a futuristic tone was very well played. Ahh - need I also mention the mixed use of leather materials, which seem to be one of the essentials in the fall 2013. At the end, we got to meet and greet the Flora Gill and Alexa Adams in the VIP lounge. I very much enjoyed there work, and really looking forward to see more of their pieces here in Canada
