Sadak FW15

MBFWB is run by the Balkan connection. And I absolutely like it. Plus SADAK had by far (by faaaaaar) the best runway collection for FW15 (in Berlin). And it could have not been more Ghetto Chanel:
sadakSadak’s designer Sasa Kovacevic is a Serbian-born fashion and stage/costume designer. He graduated in Fashion Design from Kunsthochschule Weißensee Berlin,Germany; he also studied Stage and Costume Design at the Academy of Art, Belgrade. In addition to designing for his own Fashion Label- SADAK, Sasa has also designed costumes and set design for several dance projects. And this shit better land in my wardrobe.

It’s not only the collection as a whole that comes with a motive, it’s the individual works themselves.

Always at the core of his universe (and as essential as the clothes themselves) are attitudes, moods and statements about individuality and independence. Equally important in SADAK’ s approach is the constant quest for innovation. The key elements stay the same: modern proportions, a constant research for fabrics and textures and above all the interplay of pure construction and new shapes with the body and psyche of the contemporary fashion and art.
sadak sadakSo a major HVALA for putting the right light on MBFWB!

Ivanman

Berlin. Berlin. Berlin.
A fashion week that is not relevant and at the same time not irrelevant. It’s just stuck in the middle (and every business/economy student knows that this is the worst position ever) and I think I am going to make a marketing plan to make it more attractive to the international fashion scene. although MBFWB is in it’s core super international. And labels like IVANMAN make me not want to give up on this certain week. The designer Ivan Mandzukic is bringing colourblocking into FW15 and I like the fact he is giving his style, which is more on the classical look kind of side, a more colorful twist.  And I feel like with the color orange he is in tune with the FW15 times.  See yourself:

Dope As F**k

This right here happened during Berlin Fashion Week, too: Franziska Michael showed her spring summer 2015 collection and is in retrospective one of my favorites. And this collection is everything Berlin needed. And I am also going to tell you why in a second.

Franziska Michael’s designs are characterised by contrast. Structure and fluidity, colour and monochrome, natural fibres and high-tec synthetics are all employed to create men’s and women’s wear that defies expectations. Having studied Fashion Design at Esmod International University of Art for Fashion, Berlin, Franziska Micheal set up her self-named label in 2009. For her SS15 Franziska is bringing a colourful, very 90s clubkid mixed with HipHop collection. 

And I have to admit I read a couple of articles before I wrote this, saying that her style is not very typically Berlin and at the same time I am wondering if this person (the author of the article I have read) has ever been on the streets of Berlin. Probably not. Like I am not even from this metropolis, but I do know  that Franzsika Michael’s fashion is representing a part of Berlin’s fashion scence (even if it’s only a small one, but still it is typically Berlin). And I bet I just mentioned Berlin three times per sentence right now, but you know what I am trying to say. Just stop putting the fashion of a city in categories just because it’s not mainstream. However I honestly thing that this collection would have gotten more attention if it was shown during London Fashion Week…(and I even feel bad for saying this, because I want her to show her stuff in Berlin).

As I said this is one of the best collections of BFW SS15 and you better take a  look at it:

Nipplegate

Spring 2015 has sprung.
And you can literally just feel it when you see DYN‘s SS15 collection. This collection felt like spring, because it had a certain easy breezy attitude to it. It’s the sixth collection of designer Frida Homann, who is showing floral prints, light material paired with that nonchalant French look.  Maybe it was the light colors that got me into that spring mood, maybe it was the flower prints. I don’t fucking know. Or maybe it’s the romanticism flair.  Maybe it was the sun outside. Maybe it was the tanned models. I don’t know. I really don’t know.

However, watch this video and catch me if you can:

And peep the pics and if you might feel offended by a nipplegate situation then just leave the page:

Fashion Over Sleep

I remember last Fashion Week season I was so excited for IVANMAN, which was actually opening the FW14 season (maybe I am wrong, but I think I am right). But I just fucked up and didn’t go, because I was fucked up from the party the night before. Like I literally went to bed at like 8 am and the show was at 10 am. I chose sleep over fashion. But this time I did the right thing and chose fashion over sleep.

Stylism and Modelism were the formative influences of IVANMAN and still are for his SS15 collection. The creations of the Berlin-based designer Ivan Mandzukic with Serbian (all that Balkan connection I swear) roots are drawn from a geometric purism, which is reflected in its clean lines and minimalist silhouettes. Graphic details, such as origami folding techniques and cubist forms meet expressive colors such as ruby red, cobalt blue, ocher, or pure white. His designs always seem like classically contemporary fashion artworks.

And all I can say is uh la la la, some of these SS15 pieces belong into my wardrobe :
