Blame F/W 2012/13 presentation at the Studio during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin / 20.01.2012
Some collections presented at the studio have the character of very ambitious yet misled degree work. There’s a lot of draping and experimenting with materials that don’t want to blend in: plastic, aluminum foil, steel wool – it all happened. Blame is
different. The combination of classic elements like tweed and silk jacquard with neon colors and blurry prints looks wonderful. Highlights: a soft bright yellow shawl with oversized rhinestones or flower prints which resemble frozen moving images. A crimson leather collar with punched-out patterns. All of this resting on a bed of grey and creme. With a good sense for details, Sarah Büren and Sonja Hodzode create a very contemporary look, skilfully referencing tradition. I didn’t understand the concept of the Missoni-like pieces, but anyway: In the world Blame creates I am tempted to dream myself away into “Neon Sparkled Nights”.
