We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria Berlin at the very heart of Berlin’s City West. The hotel has a sophisticated ambience in modern Art deco style. There is also a Michelin-starred-restaurant Les Solistes by Pierre Gagnaire. The hotel is close to the shopping boulevard Kurfürstendamm, home to one of my favourite department stores KaDeWe and also opposite a funky industrial designed building called Bikini Berlin which houses a number of interesting fashion boutiques.
MBFW Berlin took place opposite of the famous Brandenburg Gate.
Going from 40C in Australia to -4C in Berlin was a big change. Personally I have never experienced such cold whether! Luckily I had my camel coat from Mackage to keep me warm. Underneath I wore a knitted stripped twin set from Rag & Bone.
Mercedes-Benz showcased the new SL shot by American photographer Jeff Bark. The campaign features Russian supermodel Natasha Poly and latex work by the talented Japanese designer Atsuko Kudo. The campaign, Obsession with an Icon, puts the new SLs’ distinctive design in the spotlight.
ODEUR was founded in Stockholm in 2006 by designers Petter Hollström and Gorjan Lauseger. The sports and street-wear collection has a uni-sex characteristic which is one of the brand’s essences. Both male and female of all ages and lifestyles can wear these outfits.
The Winter/Autumn 2016 collection clearly demonstrates that they have mastered the basics which are much more complicated than at first glance. Strings of fabrics are used to give a layering effect as they flow behind the models. This is emphasised with other strings worn as necklaces and ankle bracelets. It is also reflected in the hairstyles.
Aside from the all white and all black outfits, the two is mixed with an electric blue as well as geometrical motifs are incorporated.
In 2005, Lena Hoschek started her own label at the tender age of 24. Ever since, her name has been synonymous with a nostalgic return to traditional tailoring, classic designs and the ultra-feminine hourglass silhouette.
Some things like waist-hugging silhouettes always remain the same. Lena Hoschek knows how to innovate collection after collection with different themes and inspirations without losing sight of the traditional British lifestyle. In this collection, there are some exceptional vintage looks, a cross between Sherlock Holmes and traditional British men’s fashion. Lena Hoschek contrasts these opaque styles with transparent fabrics. The floor-length couture gown in French lace is one of my favourite garments from the collection.
