Berlin Fashion Week: Patrick Mohr Spring/Summer 2013

Patrick Mohr has surprised everyone at berlin Fashion Week with with the presentation of his fashion yet again on Friday.

Instead of imitating all the other designers and set a runway show in a white Mercedes Benz tent at the Victory Column, he invited a few journalists, dozens of bloggers and even more young homosexuals who seemed to appear to all mourn the  Nu Grave-Time and were one and all dressed in black leather to Bayblon cinema in Mitte.

Ten models stood on small white columns in front of the screen, but soon had to go in order to clear the view for what Patrick really wanted to show us: his fashion film “Metamohrphose”.

The lavishly produced film lasts for good 10 minutes. Besides the actor Wilson Gonzalez Ochsenknecht and Bonnie Strange, the owner of a thrift store, all models are primarily from the Hamburg agency PMA. The film “Metamohrphose” was shot in Berlin by Hakan Can.

While the film deserved a decent ovation from the audience at the premiere, it remains pretty unclear, at least for me, what exactly the Spring/Summer 2013 collection by Patrick Mohr looks like.

What you could see were well-known trademarks such as triangles, triangular-cut jeans and casual tank tops. New additions are faded color gradients, large prints and especially bags made ​​of leather with graphic cut outs, and pale-printed scarves.

Bags and scarves are known in the fashion world as an absolute money-maker. Because nothing can generate high revenues, as accessories. Those who don’t believe it, might make a quick call to Marc Jacobs or Louis Vuitton.

Patrick Mohr, meanwhile, can be complimented for a zeitgeisty collection presentation. Let him enjoy fame, glory and money.

Vivienne Westwood: ‘YES’ for the Split-Off of Scotland

Today the people of Scotland are deciding in a referendum, if they want to be independent, or want to continue being a part of the British kingdom. Ex-corner-and-free-kick-specialist and fashion icon David Beckham has militated against the split-off of Scotland in an open later.

‘Becks’ says, watch out, get your tissues, because now it is getting emotional: that Scotland and England have more in common, then what separates them.VIVIENNE WESTWOOD apparently has a different opinion:

Westwood sent her models on the catwalk, at her Red Label SS 2015 show during London fashion week, with blue ‘YES’ buttons, which were pinned on hats and revers.

Westwood, who’s always used her fashion shows as a platform for political messages, also put notes on the chairs of the guests before the show, which had the following statement on them:

‘I am so excited. I hope that the Scots will win. It could be the turning point towards a better world. They could lead by example.’ Backstage, after the show, her words in-favour of the split-off of Scotland, were even clearer: ‘I hate England … I like Scotland because somehow I think they are better than we are. They are more democratic.’

The fashion by Vivienne Westwood – doesn’t matter in which line – has crossed its zenith. When Vivienne’s pieces become fashion (again), then it’s mostly old ideas, like the ‘Mountain Hat’, which are becoming successful again.

But – if you are not considering her fashion – it is fascinating with what kind of radicalness Westwood is combining fashion in politics, although her high age (73 years). She knows how to use fashion as a platform for her opinion, as well as hardly anyone else in the fashion business.
