For their Ohne Titel RTW Fall 2013 collection, designers Alexa Adams and Flora Gill drew their inspiration from the opposite attraction between positive + negative and strength + ease. Several factors contributed to this collection’s success including Titel’s signature knits (adored by all) – sweaters, sweater dresses + small jackets, leather – flared skirts + leather accents + the graphic excess of grid + interesting geometric patterns throughout the collection, on sweaters + pants(row 1, looks 1 + 4). One key departure for the label was printed silks in everything from sleeveless draped blouses to pajama pants (row 4, looks 2 + 3).
My favorite looks were: row 1, look 1-love the peplum top in what appears to be chiffon with the sweet surprise of similarly sheer black cap sleeves over pants with muted shiny black ‘sequined squares’ (love the juxtaposition between soft + hard, shiny + matte) + look 4-the all-creme ensemble down to the shoes, have an effortless swagger to them, considering how simple it all is (look at those shoes), row 2, look 2-check out the shape of these obnoxious leather sleeves; and row 3, all looks.
