LWFM: Berthold AW17

By Gary Dennis Monday 9th Jan, 2017

The theme for the AW17 collection for Berthold explores the rhythm of restriction.

Wide, desolate hospital corridors and angular shadows inspire a larger, languid silhouette for tunics and winter coats. Thick bandages wrapped around heads help mask the identity, taut body gloves are worn over wide-leg trousers and sportif jackets have elongated, exaggerated sleeves.

The colour scheme, from head to toe, is black, white or burgundy. Rich felted wools and pitted fabrics are paired with fluffy mohair and easy cotton suiting.
