Tettmann.Doust ‘Corpus Ephemera’ Spring/Summer 2013

It’s refreshing to stumble across another fashion label that doesn’t adhere to trends but rather cuts its own path. Tettmann.Doust, by designers Nami Tettmann and Elke Doust, are one such label. They are attempting to blur the typical seasonal cycle of fashion by producing biannual collections which share an overarching theme. Happily, their designs look drop dead gorgeous and somehow still perfectly suited to the new season too.

Tettmann.Doust’s first ever Spring Summer collection is titled ‘Corpus Ephemera’ like their debut Winter range is an ode to the anatomy of the birds and the bees. The imposing title translates roughly to things of the body which are only used temporarily (thankyou Google!) This time around they are aiming for softness and fragility inspired by cocoons and the shed exoskeletons of cicadas. If you pay attention sheer, floaty silks are printed with diagrams that mimic those in biology books (I keep trying to tell people science is sexy, this collection just re-enforces that). The label has also experimented with lingerie for the first time, while marginally more substantial designs feature light layers and draping that takes the place of a “shell” for the wearers. In this era of fast fashion we tend to expect any leatherwork to be lazer-cut yet Tettmann.Doust still use hand-cut methods. Their intricate beading, refined while the pair worked under the tutelage of local designer Gwendolynne, is also done by hand.

Presenting this intriguing sophomore collection for Spring it’s little wonder the duo were recently named Emerging Designers of the year.
