This season, my high-light of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin already happened Tuesday evening: the first runway show of Achtland at Kronprinzenpalais. Thomas Bentz and Oliver Lühr, the creative minds behind the label, finally decided to show their pieces in a classic runway show, choosing a classicist palais at Unter den Linden.

Life can be fast and sometimes it takes less than 80 minutes for a newborn to become a pensioner. The baby that was just lying on the blanket in the middle of the room starts to crawl in the next shot and then walks out of the door before it will have grown into a young girl that calls her daddy on her toy phone. The teenage girl will be a young woman, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a widow and her story will be told through 68 different women. No man will ever be visible.
Sissie Goetze’s presentation happened at “the stage”, a new location that was formerly known as “the studio”, enlarged and painted in brighter grey tones, that allows a more simple and also less expensive presentation for the fashion audience in the same location as the big runway.
I saw some pieces in her show, I instantly liked – those pants with super-comfy elastic waistband and tailored pant legs and the crisp white shirts with interesting details would make great wardrobe staples. See more in the gallery:
Hien Le opened Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin once again for the presentation of the new summer 2014 collections in the tents at Brandenburger Tor. And what a beautiful opening it was, accompanied by Janet Jackson tunes. Hien Le created his own print of dragonflies, seen on men’s and women’s shirts, skirts and dresses. And then finalized his collection presentation with outfits in smashing red and pink hues, made of perfect soft and flowing silk. His cuts are simple and will always be, that’s what he does best.
