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.

 

Monday Fashion Week night out here come some impressions of the catwalk at LNFA2 store at Bikini Berlin. Between the empty rags a catwalk, a dj desk, a bar, a make up table of JACKS Beauty Department (thanks, I love my new neon orange lipstick) and many happy fashion people. On the catwalk Bélier, Maisonnoèe and Studio GAMPE. Each of them with their very special presentation if dj and violin combo or live moderation.

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.

 

Sadak Fall/ Winter 2015

PENG. Spots on and here we go with our first Runway Show of this Fashion Week.

On my kitty-corner this magical couple  so concentrated and beautiful. Last minute seated Nikeata Thompson in the front row shouting and cheering on the models. My company has no clue of fashion he says but accidentally knows on of the the models passing by on the catwalk. They are tall, small, tattooed, long or short haired. Naturally presenting the collection of newcomer Sasa Kovacevic to atmospheric Hip Hop beats. Coral red, black and white are dominating. The cuts wide and easy. Long shirts, hoodies and baggy pants.

What a pity the show is over. The vibes scatter within seconds and while walking out I catch two girls talking behind us ‘some designers just pop up for Fashion Week and than you never hear of them again’. No judging but this designer has a fan base and for sure there will be a lot more to come.

Ivanman Fall/ Winter 2015

Good morning fashion world. Our first show at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin this Monday morning is the Stage Show of the Berlin label Ivanman by designer Ivan Mandzukic.

Scattered in the white room on platforms male models are standing like frozen. Resisting the pushing mass of press and fashion people who try to get the best picture. Dressed in classy black suit pants color blocking dominates the upper components of the outfits. Whether brown shirts with purple fine knit sweater, pink jackets with orange applications, a brown coat with pink lining or an orange with orange combination. A little out sticking an off-white combination with just a little pink somehow perfectly fits into the rest of the collection.

Dandy Men Fashion with a love for details. And if you are too shy for the total color blocking on the top you still can walk on chromatic heels but do not forget the loud socks.

Lena Hoschek: the bride <3

50s sounds, Marlene Dietrich trousers, volan applications, fake fur, exposed skirts, tuile in combination with fine knit, bustier solutions, allover flowers and watercolor, blouses with artful collar design, blossom applications, accentuation waist and peplum. With a  surge of impressions Lena Hoschek presented her AW 15/ 16 collection at the Brandenburger Tor. With an enthusiastic applause the bride gown entered the catwalk and for sure every girls heart went bananas.

LOVE is in the AIR. Thanks Lena for this special moment!

happy mbfwb

Today Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin has started.

A freezing cloudy busy morning. To avoid the public transport we choose bicycle and longboard. A longboard is not a fashion accessory we had to discover. The friendly security staff did not let us in and there was no chance do get the board stored. Thanks to the super courteous Adlon people who took care of the wooden rolling piece for some hours. You guys rock!

What we did on Day 1 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin 2015: Colour blocking at the Stage Show of Ivanman, an etno explosion at Sadak, black at Sopopular and a real Berlin style closing of the day at the LNFA Store at the BIKINI Berlin.

Ayurveda

When I was first taken to the Siddhalepa Spa by a friend in Colombo I did not expect more than a good massage and timeout from the busy city. But it was the very best massage I have ever had in my life.  Starting with a health check up by a doctor, being treated by professionally trained masseuses and checking out with a cup of tea in a clean and relaxing atmosphere.

The downstairs shop supplies Ayurvedic products like soaps, teas and much more.

In case you do not make it to Sri Lanka that often but are enthusiastic about Ayurveda treatments and products check out their website.

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...
