+ MBFWB AW14 Recap

To prep for the week, the whiskeys at NEU! Bar were appropriately clean and vanilla smooth – perhaps too much so. Despite the pains of waking the following morning, a bit of gourmet coffee clears the brain and so started the HIEN LE show – the 10am opening runway for the latest Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week...

Yes, it’s MBFW Berlin time again: black bags are packed, shirts folded, suits selected, and cameras good to go. See you all inside the tent! Shortlink http://eeb.me/NbjPt

+ MBFW SS2014: Hien Le

After a tempestuous night of precipitation plus a few drinks at Interview Mag’s party, the Berlin sky is blue and clear marking the start of MBFW Berlin Spring / Summer 2014 Collections. First up is Hien-Le. Spring leaves, dragonflies, and pastels comprise the majority of the motif – pristine and correct. But to what extent...

+ Fashion Hacking Sunday

In a rooftop atelier at the ‘far end of the world,’ Mieze Schmuckermeier – Berlin based founder of Fashion-Hackers – hands me a foamy coffee to offset the soggy weather. A silver-studded baseball cap tops off the black of Mieze’s Cleopatra-styled hair, cut to the chin, and I realise she’s dressed to work. I am...

+ MBFW Berlin Finished

Jan 15th to the 18th. Four days of fashion observations. The tent is a strange place were I’ve noted people to hug and kiss FW acquaintances they hardly know. And where they avoid like the plague the ones they actually do know…strange. I stay with my trio of knowns and have a fantastic blast. But...

+ MBFW Berlin MICHAEL SONTAG

For the MICHAEL SONTAG show, I managed to borrow a few images here from Berlin-based fashion photographer Scott Elliott making an occasional appearance this season for a few shows. The catwalk is unusually black and the red spot lights give a dramatic boost to Sontag’s collection paired with boots that remind of 17th century French...

+ MBFW Berlin MARCEL OSTERTAG

Blues and greens get mixed up with purple and tartan. But the obvious highlight is the finale. To the roaring clap and grins of the crowd, OSTERTAG himself steps forward onto the catwalk, not just for a head tilt bow, but as part of his own show. Using himself as a model, he prances up...

+ MBFW Berlin HOLY GHOST

Finally, a team – the three “spirits” behind Holy Ghost being Sedina Halilovic, Ivana Bogicevic and Jelena Radovanovic – with the guts to embrace the classics. The trio takes us back in time with classy style. In the dramatically dim spotlight, a pushed hotel dolly feature a red Fedora hat cocked sideways atop a bow-tie...

+ MBFW Berlin A DEGREE FAHRENHEIT

From roots at Marc Jacobs and Jen Kao, Yu Amatsu – the man behind A DEGREE FAHRENHEIT – exhibits his A/W 2013/14 collection at MBFW Berlin worn not only by the wrinkle-fearing fresh blooded models, but two older ladies, equally stunning in Amatsu’s timeless silhouettes.
+ MBFW Berlin DIMITRI

+ MBFW Berlin DIMITRI

Dimitri – this designer constructs. The necessity of a bag to compliment an outfit, the addition of fur around the neckline to bring out a monotone piece, or the expression of a pattern needing only itself, a long pea to visually elongate the legs, or allowing elegantly simple strap shoes to do the work.

+ MBFW Berlin PERRETSCHAAD

I’ve known Tutia and Johanna, professionally and as friends, for roughly two years now. Long enough to understand their runways to be a reflection of themselves, a play of two complimenting personalities – Tutia’s audible bursts of giggly laughter and Johanna’s bright smiles, or the former’s chaotic worktable versus the later’s tidy one. And in...

+ MBFW Berlin Have a Laugh

LAUGH – (verb) To express certain emotions, especially mirth or delight, by a series of spontaneous, usually unarticulated sounds often accompanied by corresponding facial and bodily movements. To see, and more importantly to BE seen – seems to be the theme for those attending MBFW Berlin, more of a party than a serious intake of...
