After four full days of fashion frenzy, Berlin Fashion Week has come to an end. We’ve seen the usual VIP labels like MarcCain, Guido Maria Kretschmer and Baldessarini, in less than usual shows. We’ve seen fashion trade fairs and the latest collections exhibited in fancy locations, as well as in rundown buildings. After all, January is not so bad in Berlin: Germany’s biggest fashion event makes winter bearable.
The Germans know it, since they say that there’s no such thing as “cold weather”, there’s only “unsuitable clothing”. Their neighbours, the Dutch, must know it as well. Otherwise their street fashion wouldn’t be so fancy and… suitable, both in winter and any other season, as I find it. Have you ever been to the Netherlands? They have this sense of freedom when they put clothes on. It’s like their outfits look random, but there must be some rule about it, since the outcome seems freshly cut out from Vogue magazine. I mean, Berlin doesn’t do bad when it comes to fashion, but I always thought that the Dutch have that certain something in their fashion concepts.
I’ll let you decide if you like the designs. This is definitely eye-catching for me.
