Mados Infekcija (Fashion infection) is am innovative event in Lithuania celebrating fashion and art, a platform for young designers that combines shows with a number of special presentations and exhibitions.It is also the place where the new Smeilinener Collection was presented.
Designer Mischa Woeste, of the German brand Smeilinener has a special knack for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Her Autumn/Winter 2008/09 "Mind Games" collection is no exception, with high contrast colors, rolling geometric shapes, and feminine satiny finishes as the focal points. (And any brand with the words "makes you happy" in their tag line instantly gets a plus in my book.)
Inspired by a landscape architectural model designer Mischa Woeste presents with “Mind Games” a new pattern between fashion designs and art. Amount of lines of architectural models combine all the points the same amount at regular intervals by a curve and serve as attitude information. The precise thought process during production and the mental challenge of thinking result in a collection “Mind Games”.Combining strong, clear colors (chocolate, caramel, lilac blue and silver blue) and high-quality textiles- stretch silk, and 100% Trevira wool, Smeilinener creates elaborate, sophisticated, playful and yet highly precise fashion.
The designer Mischa Woeste worked this time again with interior design fabrics of the Danish company “Kvadrat” and chose patterns of Tord Boontje and Fanny Aronsen, duo otherwise known for their special porcelain and lighting design.
