NASA space suits might not be the most promising launchpad for two young designers aiming to create clothes for a young, urban woman, but if you think about it, it is one of the most thoughtfully crafted things a person could wear. One loose seam and—pfft!—off you are, far into the Milky Way. With this in mind, Ohne Titel’s Flora Gill and Alexa Adams took the best elements of the astronaut ensemble and incorporated them into a tightly edited selection for fall.
Not all of it worked (we doubt NASA would secure shoes with duct tape) but a lot of it did, including the spiral-stitched sleeves on the sweaters and zipper detail on the tailored jackets. Gill and Adam’s colo-block knits and multitextured dresses in shades of gray will surely delight their loyal clientele, who will probably also want to get their hands on the shearling and wool hooded coat with the buckles just below the waist. Outerwear has been an important component of the collections thus far, and this strong piece fell in line with the oversize silhouette we’ve been seeing. The designers also hit on another big trend this week among both established and emerging labels: the red dress. Gill and Adams showed two—one with sharp edges and zippers; the other with a rounder, more orbital hem. These looks were by far the highlight, a colorful terrain we’d be eager for the designers to explore next season.
