4 collections I liked at Berlin Fashion Week
There is no better place to discover interesting and talented designers than the first fashion week of the season, Berlin Fashion Week. Bold ideas, imaginative cuts, playful textures and colors: the Berlin Fashion Week is the perfect moment to spot the lines of the next season.
My first choice: Ioana Ciolacu, the Romanian designer I liked a lot (from her first collections – presented by myself in some glossy magazines – to her imaginative way of putting out the clothes). Her Fall/Winter 2016/2017 collection is inspired by Fellini’s “La Strada” and I couldn’t stop notice the delicate bow details in the neck, sleeves and shoulders, the playful prints and the hard make-up.

Marina Hoermanseder: is the new sensation of the Berlin Fashion Week. Her fashion house, established only two years ago, made some waves on the Berlin catwalk. Known for the hyper-feminine forms recalling Allen Jones’s sculptures and Pedro Almodóvar’s most extreme movies, this season’s collection has an office wear, feminine, inspiration, but also some fetish details embody the balance between Berlin’s dark heart and increasing polish.

Perret Schaad: the blue, the white, the golden details – everything is so well assembled and the textures (designed to protect us from the cold weather) become so fluid in the designer’s hands, so even winter could be easier to be accepted. Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad got me at these blue straight coats… (www.perretschaad.com)
Marc Cain: the choice if you need an everyday wardrobe. Cute blouses, wide trousers, straight lined coats, scarfs and feminin details – the house designer Karin Veit put a chic collection on the catwalk at Berlin Fashion Week. (www.marccain.com)
