Marc Phillipe Coudeyre Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

While the designer was delighting in all the guests who had come to "ooh" and "aah" at his collection, I was delighting in the band playing as I entered the studio. A boy and girl duo whose tunes dragged me through the minutes that followed. Because when what felt like the 30th outfit to combine a dull beige shift dress gathered at the hips and collar took to the white platform, I got tired. Was it the excesses of the last few days? If I’m polite, I'll put it down to this. It would be even friendlier, though, to call it a spot of South Sea dozing appropriately brought on in response to Marc Phillipe Coudeyre’s "Paradise Lost" theme. After all it was hard to miss in the sea of beige. Palm prints, in-your-face tangerine and lurid canary yellow were the so-called highlights. Metallic elements, lurex jaquard and sun-catching silk. But it was no use, I was still tired.
