Styles by Tim Labenda

Wild youth – Tim Labenda creates and styles

BY ISIDORA – Designer Tim Labenda is one of Germany’s most talented young designers and protégé of no less than Vogue Editor Christiane Arp. On top of that, he won the European Fashion Award 2013 and is known for designs and styles that play with contrasts. During his visit to OUTLETCITY METZINGEN, he showed us his summer styles and festival looks for 2018, giving his fancies free rein. He mixed prints, colours and materials and inspired us with his unconventional approach. The girls from the Shoppisticated blog and model/influencer Vincent von Thien clearly felt great in these outfits. On both Kira and Vincent, the first look was on-trend double denim. Here, for both looks, Tim opted for Levi’s, adding white Adidas sneakers. Always the perfect combo….

Mix and match!

For the second summer style on Vincent, Tim sought out shorts with a belt from Etro and a matching travel bag from Hackett. He added a cardigan from Missoni, which jumps out thanks to the characteristic print. The light espadrilles from Etro are, in addition to catching the eye, extremely comfortable.

Magnum Hawaiian Style

Tim Labenda reworks a master of its era. The typical Hawaiian shirt from Etro is half tucked into the waist of casual chinos from Lacoste. The same espadrilles by Italian print brand Etro come into play again here. Hawaii or Metzingen… the main thing is that the style is right.

Mission Missoni

This sleeveless look by Missoni can, against all expectations, be worn with or without a shirt. Note that a touch of tan is necessary here… The delightful paleness of winter can, however, be hidden away if required by popping a simple T-shirt or chic shirt underneath.

This travel bag from Hackett perfectly matches that festival fever. Everything you need for an adventurous event will fit in no problem… except for maybe the tent! It’s light, stylish and easy to clean once all the action is over. The great thing about it is that it looks cool as well as showing off your style. A great choice!

Jeans it up!

Denim shorts are over? What does that even mean? Tim Labenda is convinced that denim shorts are back in for men. They just can’t be too short.

The pairing is what’s important here, of course. Add a simple, casual shirt from Missoni and the right footwear is a must. Tim found the shorts in Levi’s. They know how to get things right and have even made history doing so.

Whether it’s a festival or a beach bar…

Kira from Shoppisticated enjoys letting someone else do the styling for once and lets Tim get down to work. The result has excited the entire team. Tim pairs this bodysuit from La Perla with a long Missoni skirt. Add the La Perla beach hat and loafers from Ballyfor the perfect diva look, with skilful ease. Beautifully done!

High Class Pyjama

The pyjama style is nothing new. But monochrome combinations by Tim Labenda give the look that certain something. Pairing different shades of blue makes this style one of my absolute favourites for summer 2018. I am in love with the mono-look by Tory Burch!

Tim Labenda also carefully selects matching accessories by American designer Tory Burch. These wonderful bright blue tones are reminiscent of warm summer nights on faraway beaches. The must-have of this season (and beyond).

Diva style… with a twist

Maike from the Shoppisticated blog also loves her looks. Sometimes diva-esque, sometimes fabulously playful. Either way, Tim makes her shine. This look by Missoni paired with the long, transparent shirt from La Perla reminds us of Saint-Tropez in the 60s.

Girls just love to play!

Maike swings her shoulders and the tassels on her Missoni shirt dance. She laughs, in high spirits. She loved the look straight away. Tim pairs the fringed shirt with white shorts from La Perla and highlights the playful colour of the look with shoes and a bag in a folklore style by Tory Burch. If I think about it, this is definitely this year’s summer style and festival look for me… but wait… didn’t I say that about all the styles? All this fashion magic has bewitched me!
