London Collections Men: BERTHOLD AW16

This is the third time Raimund Berthold has presented at London Collections Men, and the use of silhouettes in this collection are a great representation of the theme he chose for this season.

With the intention of showing how clothing can envelope the body, BERTHOLD mixes “the tension between covering and smothering.” The loose tailoring portrays how we use clothing as an armour and defense mechanism without being too complicated or particular, which relates back to his inspiration of religious habits and uniforms worn by the British army.

Throughout this collection you will see the colours black and orange being used thoroughly to cast sharp and striking silhouettes of the model, yet when you look closer, some of the lines are very soft and gentle. This is a great effect that goes with his armour inspiration, as it looks harsh on the outside, yet inside it is soft, like the human beings trying to defend themselves in everyday life.

I look forward to seeing how Berthold’s aesthetic develops further for next season.
