“The opportunity to express yourself through fashion shouldn’t be limited by borders or cultural directions.” Different cultures and social environments converging and coming together is part of Marcella Lobo’s life. The 24-year-old with Italian and Indian parents grew up in Germany and completed her fashion design course at Amsterdam Fashion Institute. Her “Hyphen” collection symbolically combines a variety of influences and experiences that can, for instance, come together to form identity. The sporty cuts of hip-hop culture thus melt together with opulently decorated Indian fabrics in vibrant colors to create an eclectic overall look.

Collection

Designer's message

There are two main factors that differentiate my collection and make it special from a technical design perspective and a cultural step-change for Streetwear. Although this collection has a strong focus on textile design by enriching textures on large surfaces, it also focuses on pattern construction is something this is often lost when developing and experimenting with textiles. The facbric manipulations in HYPHEN work together with the construction of the clothes while enhancing and elevating the design.
