Fashion in Berlin: Michael Sontag Summer 2016

It seems as if Michael Sontag foresaw the weather of this week (I am not yet saying the weather of this summer, let’s be patient, people) and designed his new collection for summer of 2016 accordingly. He presented a collection with loads of long pants in very beautiful casual cuts, cosy grey sweaters, long shirts with flower embroidery that reminded me of the decor of 1990s girly shirts, many layers, and two beautiful trench coats, one of them in a very 1990s natural linen. I wish I could wear that today.

On the Runway: Michael Sontag Summer 2014

Taking pictures of Michael Sontag’s runway presentations is always a pleasure. His dramatic one-spot light hitting the softly flowing silk drapery makes it easy to snap some beautiful shots.
He created a strong look for the coming summer – his silk shirts and dresses are layered over luxurious t-shirts, a style still revoking memories of the 90s, but done in a quasi high-fashion version embellished with crystals. His bold colors of choice were a rich turquoise as well as a very sunny yellow, layered with a modest beige fabric, grey jersey and deep black. See some of my highlights here:
