The Berlin Fashion Week is over – and I am sick. That’s always been the case and will probably never change. It’s a fixed part of the procedure.
However, that very flu is usually a reliable indicator of a great week. Apart from the omnipresent parties and the respective hustle and bustle at events I also managed to actually expose myself to some fashion.
While David’s ass was stuck at the most important (because they are also the most interesting) shows of the week (read here, here, and here) I worked a little more selectively and a little less slave-like. Therefore, I hereby present you with utmost subjective highlight recap you can imagine:
1. Edward Norton at Hugo Boss
Fight Club fall guy Edward Norton sat in between Hugo Boss CEO Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, and especially Rene Zellweger and Pixie Geldorf. Of course he was wearing Hugo Boss. So was everyone else. And the whole lot of them looked fantastic.
At the after-show party Pixie Geldorf briefly bumped into me. Unfortunately without Eddie Norton, so I pushed her away – and almost to the ground. Oh well.
Also great at the HUGO BOSS show: The dark red of the Fall/Winter collection 2013.
2. A short-sleeve bomber jacket at G-Star
Since G-Star had to do their show directly the day after our strenuous opening party I obviously rushed into the show location (a church) as the last peron, being dead tired. That meant I had to stand – and almost pass out.
That’s why I didn’t really see much of the show. My head only cleared up a little when I saw that short-sleeved bomber jacket with the long leather gloves that you normally see in documentaries about cow inseminations.. Fantastic combination! Cow insemination and air force aesthetics. Not even the kick-ass G-Star dungarees could match that. In the Fall/Winter 2013 I might be exclusively wearing that.
Also great at the G-Star show: The aftershow party at Kater Holzig where I lost no less than my mind.
3. Carpet Couture
Bravely attempting to walk the inconceivably thin line between absurdity and insanity carpet manufacturer KORHANI showed evening wear made of – attention! – carpets. Complete madness, absolutely fantastic!
Of course all the clothes were only show pieces but maybe some attendants at the show feel inspired now to engage in some DIY action and make an outfit like that at home. Prices for the carpets start from €80. With our punk attitude we’re just going to say: “DIY til I die!”
Also great at the Korhani show: Green-haired amazon Bonnie Strange wore the carpet so that you could stand on it. We’d like to try that, too. Obviously!
