Although Berlin Fashion Week already lies behind us I can still feel the breeze of sleep deficiency and the need to sort my thoughts and impressions. As inveterate as fashion week in Berlin is as great are the post-fashion week events – because people cannot get enough. Ever.
Last week I was presenting the G-Sessions opening event based on the 30th anniversary of Casio’s G-Shock model. It is actually a session of 4 events so I am still up to a closing party and post-closing party. Great expectations I guess. For this second event G-Shock collaborated with the most important bloggers from the Berlin blogger sphere. Among them were Jessie from Journelles, Jakob from Dandy Diary, Stil in Berlin’s Mary Scherpe as well as Katrin from Metropolitan Circus and other incredible bloggers. Each of them had the chance to stage their very favorite G-Shock model of which we could admire the results during yesterday’s event. Within a very beautiful yet simple and minimalistic installation the photographies of the bloggers and their selected favorite were exhibited. Naturally every watch was displayed properly and obviously ready to be bought. While Carl Jakob decided to wear the Maison Martin Margiela G-Shock (review it in last Sundays post) that has been designed in the frame of their latest designer collaboration, Jessie opted for a more colorful and fancy version in ice cream pastels. I consider this as a very well thought through summer adequate decision, since summer seems to be having an inner conflict of either being authentic or playing the cool side.
Since Voo Store hosted the event and will also be hosting the upcoming G-Sessions events and because Kenzo, Carven and co. finally brought their new collections into the stores I benefited from my attendence yesterday and reviewed the new sweaters and embroderies for you. I must say that Voo Store in Kreuzberg is one fantastic store, offering an incredible vibe that no Kenzo store or department store could ever provide. For sure this is not for everybody but the ones, looking for a contrasty and grounded high-fashion shopping experience. While the Kenzo tiger did not caught my attention too much during the last seasons, the new cloudy and heavenly implemented prints are more attractive to me. The unostentatious label embroidering in light silver is the character I was wishing for in times of the tiger that is still of great actuality. I always had this strange feeling that this Kenzo tiger was taking all over and did not leave space for individuality. Since I am hyper-sensitized by now, I feel this dangerous penchant for this Kenzo creation and I do not hope that I will end up with a tiger in my closet when this should be long gone. Maybe I will opt for the clouds, what do you say?
Auch wenn die Berliner Fashion Week nun schon wieder ein ganzes Stück hinter uns liegt, verspüre ich noch immer einen Hauch meines Schlafdefizits und dem dazugehörigen Drang, meine Eindrücke passé passieren zu lassen und zu sortieren. So unverbesserlich, wie die Berliner Fashion Week ist, sind auch die ‘Nach-Events’ – weil die Leute einfach nicht genug kriegen können. Immer. (more…)
Just like our comfort zones craved so, we can finally enjoy a real summer where bikinis and tanning oils absolutely took over and made up all the inconvenience the bad weather caused. From the position of a tanning bed I really don’t mind looking back at some of the greatest Autumn/Winter 2013 collections, such as Carven’s was. Creative Director Guillaume Henry – who’s known for his quirky volumes and fabrics – created coats that were oversized and reminded of teddy bear textures while showcased some of the prettiest colours of the season: baby blue, pink, camel and blush. The size wasn’t the only twist in the collection, after the sugary palette a bunch of sexy animal prints followed as well as rubbery jacquards and graphic prints. The dresses were dreamy yet carried a great deal of edge, especially a black-on-black, zebra-stripe pencil dress cut high on the neck with an open back framed by wide collars. It all felt minimal yet richly flavoured in quality, volume, elegance and freshness. If I would have to address a message to the whole collection itself I would say ‘Come as you are’.
Genau wie wir es uns gewünscht haben, können wir endlich den wahren Sommer genießen, wobei Bikinis und Bräunungsöl die Überhand gewonnen haben und uns für die Unannehmlichkeiten des schlechten Wetters entschädigen. Von der Sonnenliege aus stört es mich nun nicht mehr, auf die großartigsten Herbst/Winter 2013 Kollektionen zurückzublicken, wie zum Beispiel Carven. (more…)
