Words Ailis Mara

As the fourth and final day of the Mercedes Benz Berlin Fashionn Week SS16 draws to a close, we take a look at the final collections on offer. Featuring some of the loudest and strongest collections yet, the Berlin fashion pack have etched irrefutable evidence of their world-stage presence. Friday saw feminine styles dominate the runways for the guys as well as the girls as designers reinterpret androgyny and bent the rules of perceived masculinity. 

 

EMRE ERDEMONGLU

Super slick and ice cool, this collection’s got your back whatever the weather, featuring swimwear garments alongside super sharp two piece suits. Penguins emblazoned on t-shirts and dotted along shirts keep the collection quirky and fun, but make no mistake – Erdemonglu’s designs are not for the faint hearted, these are bold designs reserved for only the brave. Stunning collection that reimagines masculinity in powerfully innovative and playful way.

 

DOROTHEE SCHUMACHER

Dorothee Schumacher presented her super feminine collection, taking a tropical twist on uber-sophistication. With a backdrop of luscious ferns and a birdsong soundtrack Schumacher brings rainforest vibes to Berlin for a breezy summer collection. Delicate and intricate flower appliqué detailing was a charming touch amongst the dark floral prints which dominated the collection.

 

SHAI SHALOM

Shai Shalom’s eponymous collection for men and women borrowed shapes from both sharp tailoring and loungewear. The result was a contrast in tight fits in super soft fabrics alongside slick suits and pleated details. Proving macho can have a soft side, pastel pink, yellow and blue in metallic finishes ruled the aesthetics as suits were made soft and comfortable. The look was kept cool and casual by flat sandals in buttery leathers.

Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman’s luxury womenswear collection was a high energy psychedelic delight as models marched to Prodigy’s Out of Space. Fluorescent knee high socks and silver flatforms accompanied garments in dizzying prints and tactile textures. The acid rave inspired collection was surprisingly elegant as hair and makeup styling was kept to a minimum and the duo’s remarkable prints and shapes took centre stage. A remarkably whimsical and expressive collection which still maintained the label’s core values of luxury and craftsmanship.
