Happy Valentine’s Day! Liz Malraux Spring-Summer 2020

Hello my beloved readership,

in the evening of February 14, 2020 Liz Malraux Couture presented its Spring-Summer 2020 collection. Having this in mind, happy Valentine’s Day!

Other than in summer the Liz-family this time gathered together in the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski in the heart of Hamburg. The meeting-point has been divided into four halls:

  • the entrance hall with the press-wall
  • the foyer in which the pre-show as well as after-show party took place
  • the side hall, where the catwalk for the so called “no age”-models – customers of different ages completely dressed in LMC – was placed
  • the main hall where the show took place.

Of course there was another dressing room for the models and after the show for potential customers behind the scenes however since the entrance to that room is restricted it is left out of this order.

17.00 pm

The fashion show had already begun at the entrance, not only thanks to the fashion show of the no age models before the actual fashion show but because each guest looked no different than the models on the catwalk in their creation and personal interpretation of Liz Malraux.

18.00 pm: a best of Liz Malraux Spring-Summer 2020 recap

Environmental protection, lastingness and durability in the most fast-moving field in the world: fashion. These three terms have been the main-emphasises for the Hamburg star-designer within the bounds of this collection.

New York Couture

Topics that concern the world Liz Malraux has taken up launching the trends of the year for example with her tote bags with different embroideries on it. These versatile to use bags can function as shopping bag as well as handbag or as she recommended to me personally as baby bag.

Tricolore

Golf Collection

Another leading society topic that has made it to the catwalk of Liz Malraux is girl-power: on the one hand with a woman – who is no one less than model and host Diana Richter – instead of a man hosting her fashion show since last year and in occasion of the remake of Wonder Woman and many other super heroines leading the screens of cinema her corresponding collection.

Milano

St. Tropez

Love towards the detail: this is what Liz Malraux Couture is famous for. Crocodile leather and crocodile leather patches: what is bouclé for Chanel is this material for Liz Malraux Couture. But furthermore I would consider Liz Malraux as the German Coco Chanel with Polish roots of the 21st century, not only because no designer else realises the bouclé cloth so fine as Liz Malraux but also because – besides from having at least an as striking and unmistakable trademark – if her guests are not wearing LMC they come in Chanel. Appropriate? Yes but Chanel is the only appropriate label.

Fantasy

Talking about family I consider the soirées held by Liz Malraux the most personal ones. Same faces to recognise each time anew, same staff, the designer‘s three-headed-family supporting her off stage behind the video-camera with her daughter filmmaker and videographer Anastasja Black filming the fashion show and her husband helping her directing everything as much as his wife. With that it is no surprise that Liz Malraux always shares things of her private life with her “extended-family”. This time one of her favourite undertakings to relax at home: cosy watching movies such as “Out Of Africa”, and one other passion besides from riding horses: playing golf. In order to that she presented two themes.

Denim in Different Nuances

But Africa was not the only journey Malraux had taken us to. Just like her guests came from many parts of Germany and Europe so have parts of her collection been inspired by wide parts of the world from fashion metropolises to the city where dreams are made up to favourite luxury resorts for holidays. This fashion show has been truly international as well as multicultural. But Liz Malraux proves as usual that different things perfectly harmonize together.

The grand final has been announced. Right on time our baby whom we had taken with us woke up while he had been asleep during the whole show and admired two rounds of creations one more beautiful than the other.

The show was over and the hall got empty slowly but surely and if you think fashion was the only thing people have been talking about then you should have seen everyone approaching us telling us how impressed they have been about our baby being so peaceful and calm during the show – the host included – despite the very bright light, applause and loud music.

Passion

The foyer turned to a real disco at the after show party with light-effects in the darkened room. For those who are less of the party type the room beside was silent and fully lightened.

Personally I prefer the event taking place at the Grand Elysée because besides from the main hall and the dressing room you only have one big room instead of three divided ones where you can find everyone from everywhere and where you can be seen and recognised perfectly and not miss anyone or anything and even for photos you do not need to tear anyone out of any room or occupation. In addition the traffic is calmer and so the parking as well as the stop and go possibilities are better.

Huge thanks to Liz Malraux and her entire team for another beautiful fashion show, for always bringing us together and making Valentine’s Day the most unforgettable one ever!
