Sturdy, Tough and Sexy
The runway was rocking yesterday evening during the show of The Danish fashion label Gestuz. The rugged models, the content of leather, the rocking music and the tough biker boots.The designers Sanne Sehested Niels and Lene Boesen invited us to discover the Danish winterwonderland. Besides the Danish coastal weather and nature the designers were inspired by the way the Danish photographer Kirsten Klein is photographing the lines of rocky plains and the waves of the stormy sea. This inspiration is identified in the collection called ‘through rocks and waves’ in the prints on the dresses and shirts, the use and combination of fabrics like lace, wool, washed denim and not to mention leather. The shadows of the Danish coast were responsible for the color palette of the collection. Colors like black, grey, dark blue alternated with warm colors like gold and nudes were passing the runway. The choice of using different materials in different combinations like wool and leather and silk and leather ensures that the collection is sturdy but in the same time very feminine. The Hunters love this style and the fact the models were wearing biker boots during the show, to give that extra sturdy touch. The combination of biker boots under a silk dress is daring and that’s what we really like. Hunter Niels was actually wearing the same kind of biker boots underneath his suit.
