Mercedes-Benz Berlin Fashion Week - summary part2





Another show I visited last Thursday was Mongrels in Common. This one I liked pretty much. For a Fall/Winter collection it felt pretty summerly at times, but it's nevertheless feminine and cosmopolitan!
The fabrics varied from summerly fine silk to menswear fabrics made from wool and cotton. Mongrels also work with a special fabric called Nanai-Leather. It's an environmental friendly and robust leather, produced by Nanai in Germany, which was used in skirts, hotpants, belts and various bags. Most styles werde dominated by black and grey, but the accents of apricot, beige and metallic black/red brought the ladylikeness into the game! I especially loved the fact, that they focussed on the waist and the shoulder. Most garments featured shoulder pads or shirring.





Sascha Gaugel's collection for Hausach Couture was all black and all organza and duchesse. Sounds sad and draggy, but the presentation was much fun! This was based on the performance of a drag queen who first crawled along the catwalk on all fours - in an outfit most suitable for the next video of Lady Gaga) and then rocked the turn-tables.
Lots of the clothes shown are perfectly wearable, in my opinion- at least if you could do without the black bodies,
capricious cat-accessories as well as excentric crescent-shaped headpieces.
