Titled “Tagebucheinträge” or Diary Entries in English, Kilian Kerner’s spring 2010 collection is inspired by five anonymous diary entries. The result is a thoughtful collection that has both strong and sensitive attributes. The collection gains its strength by use of Kerner’s close attention to detail. Overall, the garments are kept modest and minimal. However, the minute areas often overlooked are thought of as important and highlighted. Honing in on the ideal silhouette, Kerner succeeds with the use of small, but sharp lapels, zippers and darts. The elements work in harmony to marry the ideas of modernity and practicality. Finally, bringing a gentle calm and elegance to the collection is its iridescent qualities. The sheen acts as a catalyst for emotion. While the silhouette presents a strong representation of Kerner’s man, the sheen brings his heart to the surface for a softened, more relaxed outing.
