In store: Bernhard Willhelm AW10.

Bernhard Willhelm says to Dazed Digital:
"I wanted to do something based on kimono fabrics, kimono cuts and Japanese calligraphy and we used many Japanese girls. I think our biggest fanclub is in Japan. For me, Japan is the most exotic place because I don't understand a word. This is for me very exotic - something I don't know.
There was a lot of kimono shapes we used, but cut in my way of cutting. For the fabrics, some of it is Japanese silks or cottons. We used tie dye. So I tried to adapt Japanese culture and techniques into the collection and make it into something absurd and ridiculous."
