Guide: How to Shop Berlin Designers / 2013

Shopping Berlin based designers in Berlin isn’t as easy as it should be – most of them make a living thanks to their sales in Asia, others just don’t make enough sales at all. This is why I made that guide – clothing needs to be bought to be worn. It’s over a year since I first published the first edition of “How to shop Berlin designers in Berlin” guide and naturally, quite a lot of things have changed. Some stores closed or changed their concept, others opened or have taken over new designers and so I updated the guide with all the new information that was available to me.

Backstage: Augustin Teboul Summer 2014

I am very happy to present another set of Joseph Wolfgang Ohlert’s photographies from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, this time from the presentation of Augustin Teboul. The label showed its newest pieces in a former supermarket building from the 60s. Their deep-black and heavily embroidered designs were decorated with elaborate head-jewelry and very white faces, easily creating, once again, one of the most impressing collections of this fashion week.
Take a look at all the amazing shots from backstage:

On the Runway: Lala Berlin Summer 2014

Whatever Leyla Piedayesh does with her label Lala Berlin, she’s doing it right – always reciting the latest trends (heads with wide brims, pastel prints, sweaters with bold motifs, impressing reds) without appearing to be a copy-cat, she and her team of Lala Girls create looks and pieces that prompt a certain must-have-feel that’s needed to make a label not only creatively, but also commercially successful. Her next summer collection, presented during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin at the former Opernwerkstätten in Mitte, is full of these kind of moments. I felt it with the floor-length trenchcoat in light pink, with the bold summer knits, the light-blue shorts in summer tweed, and last but not least with the oversized kaftan with a giant monstera plant print in bright pink hues. Yes, I can see me spending the short weeks of Berlin summer in this kind of clothing.

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:

On the Runway: Kaviar Gauche Summer 2014

Back in Berlin after one season in Paris, the Berlin based label Kaviar Gauche decided to present their new collection in the fascinating space of St. Agnes, a former church built in the 60s as an icon of German brutalism architecture, in Kreuzberg. The church has recently been acquired to be remodeled as a gallery by Johan König and is now also used as an event space.
The giant main hall of the church was dramatically lit when a selection of pret-a-porter and Kaviar Gauche’s signature bridal wear was presented to the audience. Hence it was no problem, to take some pretty pictures:
