In her eponymous offering, Berlin-based fashion designer Perbandt incorporates utilitarian yet chic uniform-inspired unisex designs in black and white for both men and women...

You may very well ask what’s so unusual about a woman wearing a necktie these days but at closer analysis, the sexy androgynous black and white look is reminiscent of the sharp black and white uniforms worn by SS officers during World War II that were reportedly perfected by none other than taylor/designer Hugo Boss.

Boss, of course, had been entrusted with the task of helping to create the uniforms of all the armed services of Nationalist/Socialist a.k.a. Nazi Germany, as those of you historians and WWII buffs (such as yours truly) may already know…

The stunning uniform-like look includes moto-style sleeveless jackets with broad lapels, trench coats and black leather ankle booties. Stark as it might sound, the look is undoubtedly sexy…

But the Esther Perbandt Autumn/Winter 2014/15 collection isn’t just about sexy jack-booted unisex looks – the collection also includes stylish slacks, feminine sweaters, soft ivory colored knit coats, black and white plaid dresses, wrap closure trousers and even oversized black shorts.

Designer Esther Perbandt herself came out in a monochrome black ensemble, topped off with a sharp little black visor hat with metallic embellishment. Her no-fuss no-muss personal style is clearly reflected in this collection… Personally – I’m a fan!
