Reduced, authentic, feminine
Högl will be going in a completely new direction at the start of the spring/summer 2021 season. The new collection looks focused, modern and innovative, and concentrates on new shapes and silhouettes. For the first time, it has been divided into two overriding segments, HÖGL CITY and HÖGL WEEKEND. In the CITY segment, a reinterpreted minimalist elegance re-places the classic segment. Clear lines and understated cuts exude feminine casualness and calm.
HÖGL WEEKEND embodies the modern casual look – with sportswear touches, con-fidently relaxed yet still with a lightness that will carry you through the summer as if you were walking on air. The collection satisfies the longing for nature, clarity and purism. The focus shifts to the own well-being; anything that is superfluous is discarded.
This part of the collection stands for a lifestyle that all of us have adopted to some extent, due to the current social situation. Slowing down, making do without and solidarity characterise everyday life and are also reflected in fashion. “Less is more” is the new motto.
The Soft Mini-malism collection element is characterised by a stylish neutrality, an easy-going chic expressed in shapes and colours. Loafers, sabots, balleri-nas and also sneakers in white and cream shades are understated and unfussy. They are made of super-soft leather that fit snugly like a second skin.
The Modern Craft collection element satis-fies the longing for nature, hot weather and travel. The craftsmanship is visibly empha-sised and used as a style element. The use of natural materials such as raffia and can-vas results in new essentials with hand-crafted details.
The inspiration provided by nature is reflec-ted in the designs of the court shoes, san-dals, sneakers, sabots, mules and sling-backs. Elaborate woven details add a natu-ral chic to purist silhouettes. New lace-up boots look pick up the trendy utility-style, whereas light shades give them a sensible and uncomplicated touch.
Summer feeling meets romanticism and playfulness. The collection theme Dreams-cape turns dreamy moments and a touch of nostalgia into a wide variety of designs that ranges from sneakers and flats to graceful heeled sandals and court shoes. A new floral print, inspired by untouched flower meadows on a balmy summer’s evening, turns every-day designs that are suitable city-wear into soft and feminine companions. Understated glamour comes in the form of graceful heeled sandals and court shoes in the metallic shades platinum and bronze.
For the first time, Högl will extend the core collection with capsules. Four limited edition mini collections stand for further development and innovation, especially in terms of the design language – fashion-oriented, more edgy, albeit intentionally reduced.
In the BLOW capsule collection, well-balanced silhouettes also meet voluminousness in a season gene-rally dominated by voluminous fashion. Minimalism, neutral colour-ways and super-soft materials are the embodiment of feminine fashion coupled with lightness. The mules, slingbacks, sabots and heeled sandals feel air cushioned.
This capsule collection picks up the retro aspect of the autumn/winter collection and develops it further. Curved heels are added to designs with high cut vamps which thereby become an interface between con-temporary minimalism and retro charm. Court shoes and mules therefore look assuredly stylish, elegant and confident.
The third capsule collection, SCULPTURED HEELS, focuses on heel shapes. Slingbacks, court shoes and sabots are creatively made striking with new, constructed looking heel shapes. On feminine slingback court shoes, geometric shapes replace the usual block heels and add a sculptural visual touch to them. The statement heels are like small works of art on your feet and add a personalised touch to the plain looks of the 2021 spring/summer fashion.
A vision of sustainable innovation
“Driven by IDEAS”, Högl intends to combine innovative design and zeit-geist in a future-oriented way with given expectations regarding the use of eco-friendly materials and re-source-saving production steps, and to continuously optimise our manufacturing process with the pro-tection of our planet in mind.
A pair of sustainably manufactured sneakers set the first milestone. The stylishly urban all-rounders are made of recycled nylon and gold-standard certified Napaleather (LWG). Ultralight, super-flexible high performance running soles provide the basis. An anatomically shaped footbed and the sacchetto construction on the inside guarantee maximum wearing comfort. A sustainable cotton interlining also ensures an optimum foot climate management.
