Marcel Ostertag SS19 Show
Every season, Marcel Ostertag swoons us. Before the next season arrives, we gush over how wonderful his last collection was and then we go to his new show. The lights dim, the music starts and BOOM! There we are, smitten again. This season we had the luxury of getting that feeling 59 times, with his vast collection including colors of the rainbows. “ In many cultures worldwide, the rainbow serves as an added symbol of awakening, change and peace. It is a sign of tolerance and acceptance, the diversity of different forms of life, the hope and longing for freedom.”
This collection is special because of Marcel’s dedication to fighting for what we need as human beings. The incorporation of menswear this season symbolizes an equalizing revolution; men and women truly standing as one, shoulder to shoulder for the greater good of the human experience. “That is also a reason why Marcel has incorporated menswear on the catwalk for the first time in twelve years; the collection for the male muses at Marcel’s side includes ten looks, which are especially dominated by summer cashmere and floral prints.”
Marcel’s SS19 collection, named Muse, explores the seventies - a decade that has always enchanted him. The freedom of the decade, the idea that anything goes really set the designer off. Freedom seems to be a synonym for what moves Marcel’s designs. And he was not shy this season about the freedoms he wants people to have. Which is why it includes decadent red carpet looks along with casual items in array of color and metallic sparkle to communicate that freedom comes in many styles.
The relationship between clothes and life are very real for the designer. Every season, he manages to leave the audience thinking. We know his clothes will make us look pretty, yet his shows move us. Every season encouraging the movement of thought for the greater human good. “You have to stroke and value fashion. Fashion must be your strengthening companion; [it must] be at your side even in difficult times - just like a strong partner."
