With his Spring Summer 2020 collection titled “Lovers“, German designer Marcel Ostertag is encouraging his audience to accept and tolerate love for all. To underline this message, rainbow colours are used as pattern and in some pieces, the gender lines are creatively blurred. It is highly inspiring to observe the creative mix and match of various influences and inspirations in this compelling collection. Due to their summery and refreshing character, the lavish looks of this line certainly stay in mind. As location, once again the roof terrace of Westin Grand Hotel in the heart of Berlin, was chosen.
Light materials play a central role in his creations. They are often provided with ruffles, lace details and flounces. Thus, every piece has a highly individual character. Some womenswear blouses are provided with collars, which constitutes a highly contemporary, individual overall image. Pearl embroideries give the looks a rather romantic, utterly feminine approach. Simply stunning!
The colour palette of this collection consists of a bunch of bold, vibrant, eye-popping nuances, such as orange, turquoise, bubblegum and magenta. Additionally, sundry tender, graceful, soft nuances are repeatedly applied, for instance rose, creme, sheer white and sky blue. On top of that, olive, crimson, ruby and denim are often applied. This colour choice is the perfect addition for any strong, cosmopolitan wearer that dares to follow his/her passion for unique looks.
It is hard to pick a highlight piece of this line, but that rainbow-coloured womenswear suit literally let our hearts beat some seconds faster. With its figure- accentuating cut, it will certainly make you stand out from any crowd. Due to its bold, eye- popping colour choice that look is so refreshing yet powerful, it definitely deserves devotion.
“Lovers” is a highly individual, powerful collection that captivates you due to its very special detail-awareness and its vibrant colour choice. We will keep an eye on Marcel Ostertag and on all his upcoming collections.
