Designer Bernhard Willhelm on Creating Adventurous Genderless Garments
"In the best case, we wear what we design without being too precious about it" says designer Bernhard Willhelm, who's seasonal collections pull together a range of disparate influences to create a truly unique collection.
FW19 offer themes of consumerism and "the relationship between consumers...and the present and future states of humanity and the world.” The fall lookbook features the Veniceball basketball team in oversize silhouettes – adventurous, genderless garments. The designer has an ongoing relationship with California, in 2015, Willhelm uprooted his Paris-based studio and moved to the Hollywood Hills creating an spontaneous and naïve collection. Five years later, Willhelm continues to be drawn to California, making smart and acutely aware genderless collections that drawn from a range of influences.
