Catwalk

Especially after Fashion Week (it’s always before Fashion Week) we question ourselves or more dubitate about the sense of the fashion circus from time to time. No doubt we are fashion lovers and love to study fashion theory. But there always stays the little doubt when discussing what if the designer would have placed the seam five centimeters above the chest would that have made a better look, did you see that little blogger girl with the bow in her head, why the hell did he choose yellow and not green and what did that guy anyway do in the front row? Because in the end we do not save lives. We live fashion.

The new project by Estée Lauder creative director and Instagram art star Donald Drawbertson wraps up our thoughts in a brilliant metaphor by saying ‘Fashion is Nuts’.

We guess there are not many people allowed to picture fashion icons with nut heads and still be loved by the  fashion people. Thank you Mr. Drawbertson.

LAVA. For the first time Marcel Ostertag presented his new collection at an off-location at Berlin Fashion Week. Live music in the beginning a flashing presentation of the collection and a big final with a singing Shawny Sanders who is accompanying Marcel for many seasons as a model now. After the show we stayed at the location for a while and had a non-alcoholic beer.

The lavera Showfloor was staged at the Umspannwerk at Alexanderplatz. We made it to the closing show Friday night. Full house and the D. MACHTS GROUP proved the fusion of hair trends, cosmetics and fashion. Classy and expressive hair looks combined with the fashion creation of the Esmod students.

Creative heads behind the label VEKTOR are Kristina Puljan and Martin Eichler. Creating styles for women, men and unisex pieces in a modern, urban, elegant and sportive interpretation.

The AW 15/16 collection colors are black, white, ultramarine and red. Geometric cutting lines, layering of tops and bottoms, padded coats and sweatshirts, woolen jackets, mohair sweaters, bomber jackets made of padded silk and elastic band details form a portable and clear statement.

We would love to have some pieces for our wardrobes <3

 

We followed the Black Soma’s calling “Try the dark and mystical side of the mirror and find out!”.

Dark and mystical are the right words for describing this adventurous journey through their fashion show in Berlin last Wednesday. The designer Lukas Butkiewicz staged his new collection in an impressively different and artistical way. It was up to the visitor to move and to discover the dresses while walking through a mystical forest with models on swings or sitting on branches. And the dresses totally fit into this dark dreamworld. Straight lines and black plumes leapt to the eye and gave a raven-like impression. We discovered many cocktail dresses and evening growns – but everything seemed to be charmed – in a positive way. You felt like seeing fashion of another beautiful world. And then there was this one girl that got our attention. She was different. She was the only one dressed in white – a gleam of light in the deep forest.

This show was a great experience with a wonderful and charming new collection.

 

A big thank you to our Fashion Week Virgin Ella Wunderland for this little report from the Black Soma showcase!

Barre Noire presented its collection at the Stage of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin location.

Entering the room we can hear the birds singing. The guy behind me tells something about a Berlin club in the 90s where they had the same set up. Never mind I was still a kid by then and did not go to clubs. I enjoy the birdsong and have a look to the left and right and it somehow feels like being in the jungle.

As I have a free seating ticket I decide to stand behind the third row to have a better view. The show starts and the ones in front of me stand up. Thank god I am long-legged.

But let us focus on the fashion: complex floral jungle allovers, shirts with matching applications to the bottom, overhanging midi skirts, hole patterns, purple and greens make the collection round. Nice wearable cuts for men and women.

The easygoing elegance of designer Tim Süßbrich will definitely bring some greens to the next winter season.

 

The catwalk debut of Sopopular at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin seemed very professional. Designer Daniel Blechman did present a grungy wearable sporty look for Berlin men. Black in different nuances and textures for the clothes, paint for the mouth and nails. No clean male models but characters with tattoos.

Black three-fourths leather pants, hunched socks and rough boots as a base. Every piece fascinating on its own however in combination simple. The concentration of most of the tops is placed on the waist. Outstanding the transparent PVC rain coat and cape. Anyway the jacket with the swallowtail, black pants and boots is our favorite.

Here is a compilation of models falling on the catwalk.
It’s not easy to walk on high heels shoes and it’s common that models fall because of it. Pretty embarrassing but they don’t give up…

Most of them stay pro and keep on doing their work, some with their shoes, others without…

Dimitri gave a Mediterranean insight into Spring/ Summer 2015 at his fashion show during Berlin Fashion Week. Pattern mix/ color/ prints and treated fabrics are brand mark of the Italian rooted designer. His passion for exotic travel destinations are inspirational to the new collection.

Our favorites: the pure white dresses, see-through lace tops and huge colorful pompom necklaces and earrings.

Designer/ Model/ Celebrity/ DJane/ Hipster/ Buyer/ Partyhopper/ …, January 2014.

 

Open up the curtains. Roll out the red carpet and off we go its Berlin Fashion Week again.

Berlin lives from the tourism despite two seasons of the year when its fashion tourism. Stressed but well dressed people hustle from one fair to another fashion show and back. As time is limited and one does not want to put himself on the line to get stuck in a traffic jam, miss a shuttle or even a free drink at a new fashion hot spot its important to dress up smart in the morning or bring a big bag to change within the tight schedule.

Getting up early on Wednesday we started the day at Bread and Butter Berlin – Ich bin ein Berliner. Followed by PANORAMA Berlin to check out the relevant urban and contemporary fashion trends for autumn/ winter 2014/ 2015. Seeing Marcel Ostertag opening his own defilee in a cream coloured robe at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tent. His collection for powerful women; leather optic, silk, fake fur dresses, see through chiffons, sequin embroideries in cream, blue, black and white. Next stop the Opening Reception of Mila Et Mila Showroom Shop Gallery: beautifully oscillated jewelry. Stopping by at PANORAMA’s Swing up to the 20’s party. Dancing at the Esther Perbandt’s after show party surrounded by completely enthusiastic people – still under the spell of the earlier show at Volksbühne Berlin. Fashion Week Nights are long – a burlesque spectacle welcomed us at Bassy Club to celebrate Lena Hoschek’s show.

A crazy day at Berlin Fashion Week. Thanks for having us. We will be back in summer.

You wanne get in my pants, Mister?
– there is still room for you, no worries!

 

Already in previous collections Maison Martin Margiela showed off with some criss cross baggy pants. Last November they relaunched the style in their H&M cooperation to give more people access to this stunning classic, in which you could easily fit layers of tights or even a second body to keep warm. As Stockholm is getting cold again, it is time to dig out our MMM oversize Jeans and get cosy Antwerp-style!

How fashionable is it to dig out a ‘high street remake of an old classic’ one winter later? – Perfectly fine but if it seems too boring just change the way of wearing it this winter. SlashMuse decided if we slasheurs can be anything we want, so can these pants, here worn by R as a jumpsuit…

Speaking mannequins, amazing dresses, gender confusion and show pieces. Design and curating wise was the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibitions in Stockholm’s Arktiketurmuseet a Spectacle for all senses!

“Anyone with a heart-shaped pump will exit his fashion world seduced, lifted, entertained, moved, appy. Gaultier is alive and unforgettable”
TINTIN TÔRNCRANTZ – Colette.fr

I often couldn’t stop laughing, because he is such an over the top genius full of skills and irony!
