Berlin, January 20, 2023–LML STUDIO by Lucas Meyer-Leclère presented his "CUM DEDERIT" collection as the first fashion show to take place at St. Marienkirche in the heart of Alexanderplatz. On the organ, Jonas Sandmeier accompanied the fashion show with a concert along with special guest singer Lucky Love who sang an Acappella version of his song Masculinity.
The collection was inspired by the Song of Ascent in the bible "Nisi Dominus" which is attributed to the prophet Solomon and its musical interpretation by Vivaldi. "Cum Dederit" is the fourth movement of the composition, which is characterized by a slow, contemplative style. Meyer-Leclère drew significant inspiration for his collection from the chromatically ascending lines and slow, expressive style of the composition.
Masterful cuts and fits, revealing knits from recycled organic yarns, sensual silk braids, hand-woven fabrics and lush hand-woven tweeds that were created by sustainable materials exclusively for the collection: With "CUM DEDERIT" Meyer-Leclère creates a new wardrobe that bridges attention to detail with sensuality. The collection includes couture pieces, but also luxurious prêt-à-porter. Each garment is handmade.
The silhouettes combine menswear cuts with a feminine touch. Meyer-Leclère's collection transcends gender boundaries for the wearer to fit their own identity.
LML STUDIO has always taken a stance with its creations. Sustainability is Meyer-Leclère's top priority. Re-interpretations of looks from existing collections, the steady reuse of fabrics and local production make his fashion utterly sustainable. This collection will include a capsule of tailored looks that will be available in several sizes and limited editions.
"St. Marienkirche is not just any church. It is where I was baptized in 2017 and where I had the chance to assist the Pride CSD services by Bertold Höcker. A community that welcomed people from any sexuality and religious horizon. It is the place where I learned to love myself, worship God, sing in German, hear the organ and pray," noted Meyer-Leclére.
The collection was presented as part of Berlin Fashion Week with the support of the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy, and Public Enterprises in collaboration with the Fashion Council Germany.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to St. Marienkirche.
