Berlin Fashion Week drew to a close yesterday with yet another roster full of inimitable designers, both established and up-and-coming. Here are the highlights:
Eva Lutz’s Classic Collection
Minx by Eva Lutz drew the German Promi (celebrity) crowd to the front row as well as the runway. Lutz enlisted some of Germany’s most recognisable faces to model her new collection, with rousing applause erupting from the audience as each one stepped out sporting an impeccable updo. The collection itself wasn’t exactly experimental, but still offered plenty of perfectly chic pieces: come-hither black pencil skirts and lemon sherbet cigarette pants.
Then, it was straight to the studio space for Sebastian Ellrich’s otherworldly presentation which saw dancers weave their way through a bevy of models, creating this season’s most dynamic show spectacle. The clothing struck the balance between wearability and creativity, with numerous tailored pieces (fitted jackets both for men and women, as well as lean trousers) that played with conventional conceptions of what tailoring should be. So there was vermilion red piping detail on a cream blazer and a crochet overlay on the arms of a blouse.
Earth Tones – a Spring/ Summer 2013 trend?
Holy Ghost’s runway stole the limelight though, with the most impressive draping seen so far this season. In theory, it should have been low key considering its palette of earthy tones (moss and jade green, tan and mauve) and simplicity of silhouette but the visual effect was anything but. Models appeared almost Amazonian, in full-length silk draped dresses with dramatic slits at the side. Overall, a testament to Berlin’s formidable design talent, and an indication of the big things to come for this burgeoning fashion capital.
