Sheer fabrics, fringe, dégradé, fluor, more fluor, stripes, spandex, bright pink, more fringe if there wasn’t enough before, pattern layers, leopard print, denim, overalls, tye-dye, waterproof garments, American flags, are we forgetting something? Oh, yeah, more fringe. Don’t you worry, we’re not in the middle of a seizure in Matalan, we’re just naming SOME of the elements that designer Bernhard Willhelm has used for his upcoming Summer fashion collection.
As big fans of excess that we are, we admire the eclecticism that this German (he’s got nothing of the strict and square clichés) combines in all of his designs. You might think “shit, I wear two patterns together and I instantly look like coming out of Woodstock”. That’s the point, my friends. You gotta go beyond – stripes and checks together are already boring, as fringe and dégradé are -, now you have to let your hair down and just put on everything together. It’s gotta be done in the Bernhard way; all or nothing.
