Bildschirmfoto 2012-07-29 um 16.42.29

The fourth blog DERZEIT has collaborated with and whose author we’d like to call our ambassador in the UK: Lee Dales, master of the avant-garde kaleidoscopic, vibrating menswear fashion blog “Parrots and Peacocks!”. Since late 2011, the blog is meant “for guys in patterned ties, and blokes who like their statement coats. Color is the [...]

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

DERZEIT_MBFW_12_06_07_MG_8034

– 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 [...]

Patrick Mohr Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

Mohr

 The ultra-hip crowd waiting under the marquee at the Babylon cinema was abuzz with anticipation. How could German fashion’s resident bad boy ever possibly outdo himself? Patrick Mohr is well-known for putting on a show, and the promise of a metaMOHRphose was tantalizing. On that front, he certainly delivered, although perhaps differently than anticipated. In [...]

Perret Schaad Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

Schaad

 Pleats, soft as a toadstool’s gills, on the first skirt. Metallic threads, loosely woven and so fine they threaten to break any moment, on the second. The Perret Schaad collection combines nature and technology in a celebration of textile design at its most sophisticated. Their cuts are minimalist but utterly impeccable, sculptural with linen-mohair mixes, [...]

Michael Sontag Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

MS7

Keen observers of Michael Sontag, of which I myself am included, have long since realized his work is something of a continuous progression and not open to the fads and whimsy that other designers often follow. And why should it? You can see there is a clear vision, from someone with the skill to follow [...]

Marcel Ostertag Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

Mo1

Why beat around the bush? Marcel Ostertag’s designs left me cold. My heart sank when I received the joyous news that I had been chosen to review his show. So I came up with the following plan: concentrate on Marcel Ostertag the man. Because no one knows this, but I’m a secret fan of this [...]

Dietrich Emter Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

DE6

Falling prey to a greater trend of temporal aimlessness, Dietrich Emter’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection mixed influences spanning the entire history of modern fashion without any particular emphasis on a style or trend. Emter has stuck with his ready-to-wear principles – simple cuts and lines augmented by the strategic use of pleats. Coats, pants, blouses, and [...]

Hugo by Hugo Boss Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

Hugo_Boss_1

The ice rink in Berlin Mitte sounds like a promising location for the Hugo Boss show. My imagination is already producing images of models on sleds, ice princesses, ice-stars on windows. The runway submerged in dry ice and ice-cold drinks. None of the above, alas. Not even a popsicle. So why this location I’m asking myself, [...]

Catwalk: Vladimir Karaleev Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

VKV Kopie

I would loved to have stayed and swayed with the models through the summer air to the sound of the Siouxsie and the Banshees. Back and forth. Back and forth, turn once, look fabulously bored, and twirl your undone hair – the perfect activity on a day like this. Karaleev’s fashion was like his models, [...]

Catwalk: Sopopular Spring / Summer 2013Derzeit reviews the highlights of Berlin Fashion Week as and when they happen

SopopularIII

At some point during their adolescence, almost every boy dreams of being a rock star, even if only for a few weeks. For some the dream lasts a lot longer, even if it is one that only ever moves farther away. However close you get to that dream, you don’t have to be a rock [...]
