LUTZ No.7 FALL/WINTER 2003/04 ‘THE SMITHS AT THE DISCO’ Listening to The Smiths’ ‘The Queen is dead’ on repeat.. the idea of mixing Glitter and the Ordinary : a Men’s Blazer with Fringes, striped Shirting is worn with sequinned TShirts, Sweatshirts in grey Jersey have wide glittering hems. A striped Mohair Sweater is draped around the Body. I asked myself: ‘How can I put the aggressive, ‘street’ attitude of a Bomberjacket into a pleated dress? The answer was: fix some of the pleats so they don’t move, cut the shape of a Bomber ( those pockets, the rib finishing) into the pleats as if it was a flat fabric, then leave the rest of the pleats open.. Voilà! The result was this, quintessential Lutz :-) Ideas from this collection keep on coming up in later collections, especially the fixed/nonfixed pleats that I’m still using today.
