austrian designer lena hoschek‘s spring summer 2011 collection

after assisting vivienne westwood at her london studio, lena hoschek started her own label in 2006 at the age of 24. her collections do not follow trends or the general conception of ‘cool’, they are simply a reflection of what has fascinated her since her childhood: the female ideal of the 40s and 50s, craftsmanship, high-end tailoring, traditional materials and patterns but also rock n’ roll and punk music, tattoos, bad guys and fast cars.

i’m so tied up with real & personal work right now that i’ve neglected to blog anything worthwhile in the past few days. unfortunately that will continue for a couple more days as i look forward to a busy weekend and attending my first ever big sporting event (aka fifa world cup soccer match) on monday. i’m really not into sports, at all… but like everyone else i’ve been swept up by fifa fever, as you may have noticed.
