Alexa Adams and Flora Gill of Ohne Titel took us to the moon for fall 2011, and we didn't mind one bit.
Artists of form and shape, the duo did not disappoint this season, showing fiercely structured pieces with contrasting softness in the details, all inspired by the early Apollo mission spacesuits. "There is an interesting distance and tension between the two extremes," said Adams. A foiled, layered skirt in gunmental was paired with a weightless top and sheer sleeves. Harsh, all-black ensembles featured blousy princess shoulders and hair trim for endless movement.
Volume popped up at the shoulders, wrists and ankles, as well as in the hip of structured trousers and hems of angular dresses. Chunky gathered knits and shearling collars added to the chic, bundled-up look.
The collection was deeply rooted in various shades of grey and "lunar white" according to the designers, save for the head-to-toe red zip dresses and banded leggings, which was a crowd-pleasing look.
Also garnering much attention was the footwear selection. From the grey and black booties with fox trim and metallic banding to the heels with a chiffon overlay, shoes were the icing on the cake to a collection that was (pun intended) out of this world.
