The newest howitzweissbach collection is called SECHS ICONS. Our sixth line is a distinct tribute – a melange – but also represents a feeling for the present. Everything can be mixed up these days. No rules are there regarding what to wear – neither of a special time nor a certain place. Modern people live noiseless eclecticism. Such freedom is connected to an open-minded feeling for fashion and the own identity. And it is connected to the ability of seeing the roots of the present in the culture of the past. With collection SECHS ICONS we bow to that interesting and crowded past. Bringing the style references from the past century together in one extraordinarily contemporary collection was one of the greatest joys in howitzweissbach’s latest work. Lady Di meets Twiggy meets Marlene Dietrich. In the design process we started to feel and to imagine visions like the one of Emilie Flöge meeting up with Greta Garbo at a Fast Food Restaurant to talk about new ideas and inventions. Every piece is a 21st century tribute to a decade long ago. Pure silk is the foundation and creates an exciting variation of transparency and translucency while providing a solid structure in the designs. The pieces play with space between the materials, the dresses include playful transparent details – like universes seen in a snow globe. SECHS ICONS assembles the connection of former fashion universes but also creates small secret worlds.
