Fashion Week is long over, but the pieces of Vladimir Karaleev’s new collection still spin in my head and I get a little scared thinking of the length of my want-list… Yet again, he managed to give me goosebumps and made my heart beat faster while the models presented the clothing to the sound of an instrumental Lorde piece. I’m not sure how, but he managed to make the most rusty fabrics look elegant, to give loosely drapes and open seams a finesse. And then when he does sexy, so subtle yet so intriguing – like the final dress, a black velvet number with a front view as unobtrusive, as the surprisingly exciting open back. I’m a fan, always have been, always will. Best thing by the way, you can buy Vladi’s clothes online in his webshop.

Vladimir Karaleev’s presentation during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin is always highly anticipated by many. This time he showed a smaller pre-collection of his upcoming summer 2014 show, that will be fully shown at Paris Fashion Week this October. Nevertheless, beautiful colors and fabrics in his signature styles convinced the audience (and myself, naturally).
On one of these ultra-hot days this week, I went to see a little preview of the new pieces of some young Berlin designers for a story I photographed for Mercedes-Benz. This is an caption of Vladimir Karaleev’s new designs, that he will present in less than two weeks. Loads of whites will come together with a beautiful denim and some more technical fabrics, he hasn’t used before.
The moment just before Vladimir Karaleev’s show is starting is always my most exciting moment during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
I must admit, there have been way too few people on this blog, that once started out with only people. But my travels, the store and many other exciting new things have kept me from taking portraits, somehow. This shall have an end now! And how better to restart than with an at home portrait I wanted to take for so long!
