Berlin-based label Antonia Goy presented it’s first ever runway show as part of Berlin Fashion Week’s Der Berliner Mode Salon, despite being around since 2006. The design duo behind the brand – the eponymous Antonia Goy and Bjoern Kubeja – come from a fashion and architecture background respectively, which is highlighted in the collection through highly structured and complex silhouettes.
The collection, named ALIEN-NATION, takes inspiration from the current world climate and specifically the identity of the female silhouette. Hard masculine tailoring is softened by flowing asymmetric details, while classically masculine plaid and stripe prints are glamorized by metallic viscose jersey, abstract florals and pops of fuchsia pink. This contradiction references the need for freedom and peaceful coexistence in the world today.
Accoutrements including leather sock garters – used to accessorize sleeves and high heels – and extraneous bows on shirt and pant cuffs added a deconstructed edge that felt very much in line with current trends.
All in all Antonia Goy’s latest offering makes a statement about the modern woman navigating our world, trying to make a nation of difference.
