OHNE TITEL: Color Blocked

There is nothing “untitled” about Ohne Titel, as they hit the mark with their Fall Winter 2012 collection.

Designers Flora Gill and Alexa Adams of Ohne Titel, which means “untitled” in German, made a hard left from their bright and colorful spring collection for fall/winter 2012. Still culturally cool and super hybrid (read: classic and forward-thinking simultaneously), Ohne Titel’s approaching seasonal looks stay on trend with signature knits, leather accents, fur and sporty color-blocked suits, but in sharp colors like electric blue, purple, black, white and grey. The fashion duo even took inspiration from American textile artist Sheila Hicks, who celebrated her 50-year career as master weaver with a retrospective at ICA Pennsyvlania last year, by incorporating fledging newspaper print onto some of the garments.

What we love? Flora and Alexa use their wicked knitting skills to create stunning graphic jacquard textures for their outerwear. The unique approach lends for timeless edgy winter jackets that will remain in your wardrobe for a lifetime. Pleated skirts, sleek tailoring, leather and fox fur add a bit of luxury to the very structured, streamlined feel of the collection. And while we’re not really fans of the silk dresses (they’re just not made with everyone in mind…), overall Ohne Titel’s F/W 2012 collection is a fave.
