Hello. Welcome to KALTBLUT. Why have you decided to participate at The KALTBLUT SS17 Installation? Nico Sutor: Because our style and aesthetik fit together, it’s not so much about trends, it’s about the idea behind, that lasts longer then one season.
Can you tell us something about the collection you presented? What was your inspiration? Nico Sutor: The collection is called “HMN”. I wanted to lay the focus on people, not gender, I wanted to design pieces that make u feel good when u wear them. The color pallett is strongly influenced by skintones and the stereotypes we have in mind. It’s no black and white at all.
What kind of material did you used for the collection? Nico Sutor: I love to use jersey and viscose, everything thats feels good on ur skin in summer. If u feel good, you look good.
What challenges did you face during the design process? Nico Sutor: Finding the fabric I wanted in the colors I wanted, that was harder than I imagined.
