"Design a set of clothes matching the image of the new Citroën DS5": this was the task 5 Norwegian designers were given a couple of weeks ago. The price would be a 55,555 Nok voucher. My first thoughts according this theme were: How could they ever be able to design clothes inspired by a car? Which fabrics would they be using: leather? How would they integrate the image of the new Citroën into different silhouettes? 

Tuesday night Helje Hamre, L&J, Kevin Azzopardi, T-Michael and Mardou&Dean showed us each how they interpretered the given theme. Since I'm a big Mardou&Dean fan (their clothes are GORGEOUS) I was pretty excited to see what they had done... But I must say that it was the blue silhouette created by designer duo L&J which blew me of my feet. I'd love to jump into the new Citroën DS5 with this beauty on :-). 

Eventually, it was the in Bergen based designer Michael T. who won the contest with his very manly yet sophisticated suit. I must say that he picked his model very well: the perfect guy to wear his suit :-). 

Tusen takk This Is Pr for invitasjonen.
