Like most fashion weeks Berlin served up some smoking hot fashions and some devilishly dressed A-listers.
Day 1 had everything, swimwear, children’s wear, men’s wear, women’s plus sized collections and women’s fashion collections. The looks were fiery and the models looked stunning in the designers vision and styling.
Some of the trends on the runway were 50’s inspired looks and oversized jewellery, while the swimwear showed super slinky tops paired with equally slender bottoms. Color wise, the looks were really all over the map but grey seemed to be the glue that bonded most of the collections followed by darker shades of purple, blues, and browns. The men’s wear seemed to have more white than the women’s and some of the mixed collections were really avant garde bringing focus to new creative and unique silhouettes.
Day 2 mostly focused on showmanship and delivering a fresh show which was very refreshing from the basic catwalk shows of the major cities and designers.
At times; when a show is thrilling and theatrical the luster is missing from the clothes, however, in the case of Berlin, the models were positioned on the catwalk, or the shows were color blocked in a way that seemed to add to the looks rather than take away.
The Allude Collection was a perfect example of this in that it was mostly whites and creams with perforated tops, shorts, and shift dresses. These looks were divine with a touch if mischief in a “first fall from grace” kind of way.
Berlin holds many secrets and sheds light onto a new era of vivid imagination and contemporary looks and silhouettes that the North America and the rest of Europe are keeping a close eye on. Stay tuned for Berlin Fashion Week Review Day 3 and 4
