Louise Friedlaender stages her collection for Autumn/Winter 2016 at Berlin Fashion Week.
When Louise Friedlaender’s granny mended clothes she would use patches, mostly made from leather until a pair of jeans eventually became a pair of leather trousers. This is one of the tales that inspired the designer to this collection.
But don’t expect anything too hippie. The hand-made vibe is counter-balanced with good tailoring, especially the elongated tailored 70s style blazers that would have done every Charlie’s Angel proud.
