LML Studio // SS23
The main focus of designer Lucas Meyer-Leclère is to create wearable art pieces that have couture feel to them and do no harm to the environment. His designs are gender-fluid and altered by hand.
LML Studio presented its pieces last season as part of DER BERLINER SALON, where it gained the appreciation of former VOGUE Germany Editor-in-Chief Christiane Arp. This time, Meyer-Leclère showcased his design as part of a runway show at MBFW.
The collection “Sensible Ensemble“ celebrates the beauty of diversity, being together, and enjoying being free. The designer’s central concept was to create coats to keep the wool industry going in times of the global warming crisis.
The three-part presentation included performances by the Berlin Ensemble and an a cappella of Marlene Dietrich’s and Peter Seegers’ anti-war song “Tell me where the flowers are”.
The designs were themed “remake, reuse, reassemble” and included repurposed and reworked vintage and found articles dating back to the 1930s. As well as hand-knitted, crocheted, painted, and embroidered trousers, shorts, coats, tops, and accessories.
His collection is Lucas Meyer-Leclere’s response to the many adverse global events and a celebration of vibrancy, love, and passion. An impressive finish for this MBFW Berlin.
