On September 15 Eva Minge presented her latest ready to wear collection as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, a collection that was unfortunately not up to all that we have seen during the week.
Inspired by the story of the independence movement and regime in the 80s in Poland, the designer wanted the message “Freedom and Solidarity in Fashion” has given us an overloaded look and in bad taste. Overloaded element and the falsity of material like leather orange-brown varnish gave unflattering and un-feminine results. Eva Minge, known for her haute couture creations presented in Paris and Milan, may have tried to do too much with her ready-to-wear line, a mix of cargo jacket jersey with applied colored stones, waist-band kimono-style strapless gown and rustle for a result devoid of class and sophistication.
The collection ended up being not very accessible. The pieces in neutral colors were bland and unattractive and the military inspirations were badly used. The joint transparency and opacity in suits and dresses in leopard print satin gave an amateur clubwear look.
The styling was off as both sunglasses with orange lenses and high suede boots did not mix. In addition, the models seemed less professional, one of them even removing her shoes at the end of the runway. This show was a disappointment. Large leather wallets, however, were the most interesting element of the show.
