ODEEH Runway Show
Designers Otto Drögsler and Jörg Ehrlic combined their creative talent to present ODEEH no 8 on Monday 4th March. The runway was located in a chic ‘garage’ with bare concrete walls and floors, and simple wooden benches lining the catwalk. Seated on the front row, we were able to admire the many elegant fashionistas opposite us, sharply dressed and ready to be dazzled.
The show began with loud electronic indie music. Slow moving models in black chunky heeled boots proudly presented the F/W13 line. Roughly twenty looks were exhibited, many with clashing colors of purple, tangerine orange and silk blue, while mixed textures and prints created a unique vibrancy. This was followed by tailored simplicity; structured black dresses and trousers. The idea of simplicity was enhanced by the models’ sleek ponies and minimalist make up.
Typical ODEEH geometric prints created a sense of sophisticated bohemia, with flowing kaftan-like silk dresses and tribal printed wide leg trousers. Fluorescent chunky knits contrasted with silk trousers and metallic skirts, a recurrent trend for FW13.
The outerwear had leather finishes and structured shoulders enhancing the overall sense of elegance. As the models walked their final catwalk and the designers took a bow, the audience stood and clapped wildly. The new collection was clearly impressive.
