MFW FALL WINTER 2017-18 – ARTHUR ARBESSER FW
The 80s, red thread of many Fall Winter 2017 collections, make a comeback also in Arthur Arbesser’s show, inspired by Wim Wender’s acclaimed movie “Wings of Desire” and from 1980s east Berlin – a time when Germany was still divided and dipped in a dark and gloomy atmosphere. Thus, the collection slides in a cold industrial environment and opens with a series of austere looks, dominated by black and sharp lines that wink at uniform and sailor cuts. But colour touches are there too, and they come in the form of geometric prints in bright or pastel shades, plastic patent looks in pop colours that give a modern and vibrant twist to the collection’s noir inspiration, also visible in the choice of an elegant 1930s makeup.
