MICHAEL SONTAG
Spring 2012, Berlin Fashion week



Michael Sontag’s perennial and cognitive attitude to the development of his work has remained with his Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
He has continued to break through the set parameters of fashion, allowing his work to develop with clarity from his previous Seasons. This lucid and flowing concept mirrors the sleek lines and fluid silhouettes of his work. Breaking the boundaries of trend, age and Season, Michael has created a wearable collection for the elegant, confident and sensual woman. Michael has maintained his organic approach to design allowing fall of the fabric and how it interacts with the female form, to determine his work.
To achieve his creations Michael subtly manipulated draped fabric, forming certain twists or folds, whilst retaining the natural flow and movement of the fabrics by using little or no stitching.
The refreshing colour palette evokes a semblance of a breezy Summers day, using a base of muted chalky tones of blue, white and brown which is juxtaposed and energised with hints of buoyant yellow and pink.
An air of luxury is affirmed by his use of exceptional fabrics. Crisp, crepe-like cotton, fluid washed silk formed, effortless light organic cotton, incandescent Teflon coated silk and soft silk jersey.
The combination of powdery colours and luminous fabrics, conjures up images of dust glowing in the sunligh Michael Sontag’s perennial and cognitive attitude to the development of his work has remained with his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. He has continued to break through the set parameters of fashion, allowing his work to develop with clarity from his previous Seasons. This lucid and flowing concept mirrors the sleek lines and fluid silhouettes of his work.
