Mode Suisse Edition 18 took place in a modern setting of a newly opened co-working space and event location – Brooklyn-like loft in Zurich – VN Residency. At the 2020 autumn edition during the challenging times of COVID-19 ten Swiss designer brands showed their collections in a form of short runways and showrooms to the media and creative minds of the city: 

  • Klaesi Holdener (Zürich, Berlin) presented a capsule collection called “Dreamerz”, comprising floaty pyjamas, shirt dresses and kimonos and showed their collaboration with eyewear-label SOL SOL ITO (Zurich).
  • Garnison (Porrentruy) characteristically played with gender expectations, aiming to define new codes while still respecting the established rules of menswear.
  • NOMADISSEM’s (Schaffhausen) collection was inspired by the contrast with nature’s power and the elegance of open water sailing.
  • HEAD – Genève alumni ak lebinôme presented their first gender fluid collection consisting of manipulated images from personal memories printed on bold textiles.
  • MOURJJAN (Zurich, Beirut, Klosters) teamed up with Vanto (Biel) once again to create an accessories collection oozing with self-confidence designed to reset mind and spirit, entitled “Reimagine. Reset. Reinvent.”.
  • amorphose (Lugano) presented a capsule collection simply named, “I love you”, which translated into an exquisite aesthetic reminiscent of Bello’s couture roots. 
  • NINA YUUN’s (Burgdorf) baby son Bada provided the inspiration for a collection that offered clothes for strong, independent women who are also kind and gentle.
  • Luca Xavier Tanner (Zurich) created a collection about transparency and sculptural elements. 
  • KDH1932 (Thun), was launched by Kandahar, Mode Suisse’ new footwear partner, in a modern take on the traditional shoe brand.
