This season, the Austria born designer REBEKKA RUÉTZ presented her SS18 collection at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin interlaced with various influences that form a decoratively rich story. diversity was celebrated throughout the collection with a display of colours and a mixture of retro athleticism, femininity and sci-fi.

Shapes were distorted with special emphasis on the fabric mix. Sports hoodies were teamed with lacy dresses, platform shoes and colourful glasses. Innovation did not only reflect on the fabrics, but also in the way the pieces were styled. The colour combination flout the norm – midnight black, cameo green and ocean turquoise met with olive umber, cactus green, dirty whites and coral pink.

This created a unique collection with an avant garde feel, that presented garments which can be put together in different ways to create various looks for the modern Amazon.
