Like us, humans, the 2018 spring-summer fashion show of 22/4 started on the ocean, but unlike the primitive sea from where our ancestors came from, 22/4 runway recalls a very peaceful past: the designers' - Stephanie Hahn - early swim experience of a German childhood. This summer holidays nostalgia were translated beautiful and peacefully into nautical notions, where cords - between other details - were present in every style. From an intense breathing atmosphere matching the dark palette of the ocean and the presence of human through sounds of underwater machinery, the beauty became dramatic. This contrasts with the fresh white and full green styles and models wet bodies, making this show an ocean of handmade creativity.
