Michael Michalsky's collections for SS10 are inspired by the groundbreaking work of the American photojournalist Dorothea Lange (1895 – 1965) who became renown through her documentary of the countryside living in America during the 'Great Depression' in the 1920ies. Michael Michalsky re-interprets this time analogous to the current worldwide financial crisis: laissez-faire and ultimate decadence are the main themes of his transformation of the 1920ies into today's fashion.
