After the SOPOPULAR presentation at Berlin Fashion Week was one of our highlights at fashion week we only today – with a massive delay – saw the according video of the collection “Black Hole Sun” and have to say: It’s awesome!
Especially brilliant: SOPOPULAR designer Daniel Blechmann seems to be a huge Grunge fan. He named his label after a quote by Kurt Cobain (It’s tough to be so popular”), and the name of his Spring/Summer 2014 collection is taken from Soundgarden smasher “Black Hole Sun”. We appreciate such a high degree of being a fanboy.
Obviously you can also find the Berlin label’s new pieces of the upcoming spring in the video. We get to see: Suits with shorts, a hooded coat, loud graphic patterns, sweatpants, longsleeves, and a skirt-ish piece with grey color shades (When asked about it designer Daniel Blechmann simply calls it “coat with opped collar”), pullovers with elbow patches – and generally a minimal, except for the graphic prints, simple collection. It impresses with clear cuts and high quality garments – inspired, says Blechmann, by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. You can tell.
