Dawid TomaszewskiBerlin Catwalk Highlights F/W 2012/13

Dawid Tomaszewski /W 2012/13 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin / 19.01.2012

The fog rises through the dark, swirling up to the projections on the arched ceiling of the Heeresbäckerei. Even though the collection’s title is "Apocalypse", it doesn’t feel like the end of time – more like a promising new beginning. Dawid Tomaszewksi has changed a lot: For once, he is collaborating with the Berlin label Très Bonjour, who specializes in de luxe latex. There is also a mens line. To cut things short: I’d describe this evening as a meeting of Alfred Hitchcock (the music) with Grace Kelly (who goes well with Hitchcock) and Sherlock Holmes (the boys, yeah!). As usual, Grace Kelly has an elegant and sophisticated style. The clear, cool architectural lines meet warm muted colors. Beautiful, as we know and like it. As for Sherlock: The Tomaszewski man combines latex leggings with coarsely knit degradé sweaters, or straight ankle-length pants with tartan capes. The effect leaves me surprised – and convinced.
