Not ones for convention, the Bless girls presented their fall collection, N°43, on models who, posing in tableaux vivants, were observed and drawn by art and fashion students. These sketches will be used in Bless’s seasonal collaboration with a single publication, this time Monokultur magazine.
The collection was all about outerwear, never a bad idea for fall and winter. The standouts were super-heavy wool knits and velvets in outdoor colors of green, camel and black. Hunting images appeared in all-over prints, while coats and capes were trimmed in lamb, fox, and raccoon fur. Meanwhile, Bless’s anticipated hybrid object was the Piggybankfuniture, a chair you can insert coins into and which has a mirror that makes it seem like you’re richer than you really are, which can be a blessing and a curse.
