Kilian Kerner Backstage Looks
Two worlds collide; Claudette, the princess who wants to break out of her life and live an adventure, meets Rico, the simple boy on his way to becoming a successful boxer. Their lives couldn’t be more different. Nevertheless, when they meet, they instantly fall in love.
The fashion accompanies the love story between those two characters—a portrait of the different faces of modern and confident femininity. We saw exactly that: contrasts. The women’s designs started in light pastels, incorporating many tulle and glitter elements. The show was working its way to more bold shaped, high slits on black dresses adorned with shiny stones, ultimately completed with a tailored suit completely covered in glitter.
The story of Claudette and Rico was absorbed by boxing aesthetic elements incorporated throughout the collection. One coat had an oversized hood resembling a boxer’s cape. The pants had the classical boxing waistband. The designer showed an exciting mix of materials by choosing leather combined with wool-like coats.
