Mercedes-Benz Berlin Fashion Week - summary

Yesterday evening the runway show of Stine Goya was a real highlight finishing a rather average Fashion Week here in Berlin.

But let's start at the beginning... Wednesday morning the first show I watched was Lena Hoschek. One of the German celebs attending the presentation of the designer from Austria was Enie van de Meiklokjes. And it almost felt like the collection was designed for Enie alone- there were loads of beautiful petticoats and the 50s makeup is Enie's signature look. But you could also see menswear inspired outfits with shirts, ties and waistcoats. The inspiration came from the middle of the last century and the mostly rockabilly-like looks were nice to look at, but not very new of course. One of the design elements were heart shaped fabric applications on some of the blouses - these reminded me instantly of the Viktor & Rolf for H&M collection 3 years ago (the one with the red skirt was a 1:1 copy in my eyes). But they looked cute then and they did now...

No Ifs (by Kilian Kerner) was the second runway show I saw. Nothing much to write about the styles here - it was boring boring boring. Okay, this was just Berlin Fashion Week, but even here you needn't to show uninspired street styles like that - it felt like looking at the new (or old?) New Yorker- or H&M Divided collections - the hairdo of the female models was the highlight of this presentation in my eyes!

Anja Gockel was the opening designer on Thursday. And the opening model there was Alek Wek - she's no more seen on runways in New York, Paris, Milan or London, but again - this was Berlin... The collection shown was rather large with different styles. Lots of sequins - on trousers, jackets, dresses or skirts in greenish gold or black as well as fake fur trousers or jackets were part of the collection. Other fabrics were ruby red or printed satin and cotton trousers (with two different materials / dessins) - aah, these trousers, yuck!
Most of the clothes are alright for women over 40 - but all in all it felt a little bit to much Galeria Kaufhof (boring German department store) like.

Offside the events in the tent at Bebelplatz, C.Neeon showed at WMF - a frequently used party venue near Alexanderplatz. There were two collections shown at this presentation - C.Neeon and Mykita.
The clothes were designed by the German duo behind C.Neeon - Clara Leskovar und Doreen Schulz. The sunglasses and glasses worn by some models (who looked pretty average and amateurish) came from the Berlin label specialised in glasses Mykita.
The theme of the C.Neeon collection was the flamingo. Prints and colors on the dresses, longshirts and leggings reminded of the colors of the birds. There was a flamingo print and other more geometrical prints - the latter is typical for the label. The clothes shown were interesting and looked pretty and cosy. But like so many collections of this Fall Winter Fashion Week this as well looked really summerly apart from the boots, some scarves and a few chunky coats.

to be continued tomorrow...
