“To hear Lutz Huelle speak about his clothes is to be on the receiving end of all sorts of mini revelations. To wit: “I like that something appears sexy because the person inside it decides it is going to be sexy.” The supporting evidence: a trench coat or gray jersey tunic that could be unzipped from the shoulder down the arm. Or else he’ll consider how a garment might exist in a fixed seductive state of sliding off the body; this he did by suspending the core of black parka from diamanté straps, flipping its raison d’être from outerwear to evening attire. Huelle operates from the premise that his designs need to end up being worn; otherwise, as he puts it, “What’s the point?” But his application of elasticized seaming to alter volumes, or the flapper fringing spilling forth from a boxy blazer also backed up his belief in “eccentric simplicity.” Amy Verner on S/S 2016 , Vogue Runway

“De L’or en Art”, Elisabeth Clauss on Lutz Huelle in ELLE Magazine: Lundi à Paris, Lutz Huelle a présenté une collection inspirée d’un dimanche à peindre. Le résultat ? Un équilibre contemporain, moucheté d’or, barbouillé de simplicité. Il a éclaboussé, repeint ses laines précieuses de peinture métallisées. Il a noué sur l’avant une robe tablier sans manche d’un noir profond, il a enroulé l’écharpe intégrée d’un manteau pour en inventer une pièce hybride, mi-cape, mi-manteau de cocher.

The first time I met Maria Luisa, I didn’t actually meet her – seeing her in the showroom at Margiela every season, we’d always been anxious to know her opinion about the latest collection , but I had never dared to speak to her. The day she came to see my first collection I was on my way to the office, at the time in the Rue de L’Aqueduc, behind the Gare du Nord. Walking towards the building, I saw her standing in front of the door , this incredibly elegant, beautiful woman, and in a moment of Panic I turned around and left. She’d come to have a look at the collection – and for me this meant make or break. She became the first person ever to buy the collection, a huge confidence booster and, as it turned out, an enormous help when I then took the collection to Italy in search of a producer. Mentioning Maria Luisa opened literally every door. Her immense talent and open-mindedness, her enthusiasm and generosity were a huge inspiration and continue to be so- her legacy will live on in all those she helped and believed in, and in whose careers she played such an important part.
