Exactly a week ago 7th Mode Suisse Edition took place at Kongresshaus Zurich where the work of local designers for the upcoming FW2015/2016 season was shown.
It was an interesting event with 16 labels presenting, and a showroom where one could get to meet the designers and buy some interesting pieces. As for the work itself, most of it was filled with swissness as I like to phrase it for simple, traditional and not very out of the box looks. That said, some of the designers managed to surprise me with interesting textures using different materials or cuts, such as the example of STF and Steinrohner. Although most of the pieces had typical shapes and cuts, the difference in colours and the way they were put together made a major difference so for me, it was easy to pick my three favourites.
Sara Vidas knocked me with the total yellow outfit and that statement fedora hat. I was looking forward to check her design at showroom, but unfortunately this brand was not there. Pitty, I bet I would have taken that hat! SARO was the only brand that showed that real feminine elegance, especially when an amazing burgundy oversized leather coat appeared on the catwalk. Loved his black mini dress and amazing lace dress at the end. (You can check the whole catwalk on our Instagram.)Pieces from En Soie catwalk were just so french and adorable. Those skirts are so Paris worthy. Loved their casual suits and embellished sweaters.
Big thanks to Yannick Aellen for organising the event and inviting me.
