ISSEVER BAHRIBerlin Catwalk Highlights F/W 2012/13

Issever Bahri F/W 2012/13 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin / 21.01.2012

When I rushed in from the rain on the last day of fashion week, the tent seemed deserted. It wasn't that people had lost interest, simply that the seating rows for the Issever Bahri show were already packed. And the looks that were sent from offstage towards the click-frenzied photographers were worth it. Pencil skirts with bondage- like knitted grits, gangsteresque fur coats, college-style silk blousons and quilted leather jackets only sound weird on a list. To the eyes of the audience, however, they merged into a harmonious, convincing image. The collection of Derya Issever and Cimen Bachri didn't prize touch over reality: The knit sweaters in dark blue, clean cut powder colored blazers and straight hipsters can easily be called wearable. However, the same isn't true of the beautiful shoes worn by the thin-legged models – those were made for standing rather than walking.
