WEBSITES & SOCIAL
Lutz huelle is a fashion designer born in Remscheid, Germany and based in paris. In 1995, after completing his degree in fashion design at central saint martins college of art and design, lutz moved to paris and started working for maison martin margiela where he was in charge of the knitwear and artisanal lines. In 2000, he decided to launch his own brand named lutz and had his first show at fabric Hybert's studio during paris fashion week which found immediate success. It combined the ease of sportswear with the complexity and creativity of a designer's collection. One year after, Kate Moss was photographed in a Lutz Huelle's dress by Jurgen teller for Purple Magazine. This same year, lutz won the prestigious andam award - biggest fashion award worldwide - and repeatedly two years later. In 2002, he was invited to hyères festival as part of the judging panel when felipe oliveira baptista won the prize. Lutz huelle's pieces have been acquired and shown at the muse des arts décoratifs, frac, musée galliera and at the Goethe institute in Tokyo.
Lutz's approach to fashion has been described as â€˜de-contextualization' - taking things out of context, mixing and matching, working on structure and identity. A trench coat is draped to become a dress, knit is worked to resemble a fur coat, a dress is cut in heavy cotton to double as a coat and a leather bag is draped and worn on the shoulder to become part of the silhouette, thus creating an identity that is multifaceted, conceptual and personal. “this would go on to inform all of my later work the tweaking of the silhouette, pulling garments up and down the body to emphasize different parts, the mix of strong, elementary colors with neutrals, the draping of simple, every day garments, the mix and match of knit and fabric, the surrealism and fetishism, the sporty influences, my obsession with the trench coat and the bomber, and the layering of different types and genres.” His collections have been shown all around the world including Dunedin fashion week where he was part of the jury, rome, Beijing, shanghai, sao paolo and Barcelona amongst others. In addition, he has been a teacher at central saint martins and at the royal college of art in London. In 2012, the brand was renamed lutz huelle duE to the growing in size of the company and the resulting difficulty of effectively protecting the name lutz on a worldwide basis. Lutz huelle has been an active member of the â€˜féderation française de la couture et du pret-à-porter des couturiers et des créateurs de mode' since 2002.
Today the brand is sold in MULTI-BRAND STORES and boutiques worldwide as L'ECLAIREUR Paris, MARIA LUISA Paris, ANDREAS MURKUDIS Berlin, ISETAN Tokyo, STILJ Bruxelles, ANTONIOLLI Milano, IT Hong Kong, BOON THE SHOP - Seoul Korea ... LUTZ HUELLE has his own showroom in le marais district in paris.
