Ioana Ciolacu – Hunters, Spring/Summer 2015

Ioana Ciolacu, Romanian designer and winner of the fashion talent award “Designer for Tomorrow 2013“ by Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf and its online shop Fashion ID, presented her new Spring/Summer 2015 collection, entitled “Hunters”, at her first own catwalk show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. 

The idea of the collection, conceptually entitled HUNTERS, revolves around the unpredictable and inter-changing relationship between the hunter and the prey. Contrasting elements such as love vs. war or power vs. weakness come to life both in the human society and in the wilderness. This is precisely the notion encompassed by the 25 outfits showcased and evoked through color, fabric use, silhouette, prints, technology.

The contrasts have played the essential part in the innovative “hunt” unfolded on the catwalk: from pale tones to statement colors, from dreamy and fragile fabrics to precise and empowering laser-cuts. The laborious hand-stitching and the flawless digital printing (personally created by the designer herself) have outlined the haute aesthetics and the quality of the collection, which was perfected by a series of exclusively designed sunglasses, made from plexiglass, wood and cork, materials that underline the above mentioned concept.
