As the curtains rose on W.E.4 Fashion Day during Berlin Fashion Week, Danny Reinke launched his remarkable Spring/Summer 2024 collection, “LUSTGARDEN.” A prêt-à-couture journey inspired by the illustrious triptych “Garden of Delights” by Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch, the collection transforms the artwork into a utopian dreamscape—a paradise of love where positive emotions fuel sexuality. In a bold exploration of contradictions, “LUSTGARDEN” becomes a symbolic reflection of gluttony and lust in contemporary society.
The Allure of Rosé Tones
Central to the SS24 collection are rosé tones in various nuances, artfully combined with shades of blue, green, greige, and white, adorning luxurious silk fabrics like dupion, satin, and chiffon. The heart of the collection lies in its exclusively created prints that breathe life into the title “Lustgarden.” Drawing from the masterpiece by Hieronymus Bosch, fragments of the painting are meticulously transferred, expanded, and reassembled to form captivating patterns.

The profound theme of the collection stems from a museum visit, highlighting Danny Reinke’s commitment to meticulous research, a cornerstone of his creative process. At the heart of the label lies an unwavering dedication to craftsmanship, with each garment and detail meticulously handcrafted in the Berlin atelier. For this collection, Reinke collaborated with a couture tailor from Paris, resulting in key pieces like a dress adorned with over 300 hand-crocheted flowers and leaves or a voluminous tulle dress in delicate pink.
