Day 1 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin for me the surprise was Sopopular slick, monochrome Menswear presentation. Great casting, cool clothes in shades from White, Grey to Black, with interesting degrade weaves, super matt leather and a banging good soundtrack.
Check out their website and collection video here.
Here Artist and Designer Kotaro Sato from Japan, who also attended the ECCO Leather Hotshop in Amsterdam. He is wearing a dark Grey distressed jersey jacket, Black stretch woollen trousers from his CRUCE & Co. collection and some heavy duty Brogues. Check out his inspired work and collection here.
Here Rachel and Lawson who I met on Bricklane. Rachel in all Black outfit with the leopard scarf and golden Chanel broche and Lawson in a German camouflage Jacket and some amazing tattoos on his neck and the “True Love -Rise Fall” on his hands. I love both their strong individual looks, but I am particularly fascinated how they visually come together as a couple full of style and contrast.
It took Nina Kaplan 5 years to get all those amazing tattoos done, which have been mainly inspired by medieval iconography. Of course the cut off denim shorts work best to show of the tattoos on the leg, but I love how the joy division T-Shirt does also reflects the hand drawn, detailed and linear feel of the tattoos.
