This time, the inspiration for her new collection, Marina Hoermansender – the Austrian-French designer, found it in the opera divas and Victorian vamps. Those who follow her work already know that she has an unmistakable and impeccable signature –and that would be her defining bodices of bondage, buckles, and sculpted bodices. Mainly formed from leather, you can see the exceptional skill and effort put into all of them. Being an award-winning designer, for this collection, she decided to do something different.
Her motifs, patterns and her signature “MH” were wisely and perfectly placed in her new pieces, in the form of the heartbeat. This goes on everything, from makeup to pink guava juice. The style is also present at her newest collaboration with the Austrian company Wolford. Her signature look just transferred onto Wolford’s hosiery and bodycon dresses.
The designer herself explained that she found the inspiration from opera divas and Victorian vamps and she used fleur du mal devoré velvet. You can see it on all sheer gowns, as well as on minis and culottes for a better effect. The paper-thin patent pleather was present and it was placed in the ruffle-collared raincoats and jackets in black color and bubblegum. Pushing her own limits, and transferring the little girl into a woman, she played safely on the edge of vulgarity with the black color, bondage-belts and buckle pieces. It gave the whole collection a more sexual style, but still preserving her original signature.
