LML Studio // SS23

Collection Recap

The main focus of designer Lucas Meyer-Leclère is to create wearable art pieces that have couture feel to them and do no harm to the environment. His designs are gender-fluid and altered by hand.

LML Studio presented its pieces last season as part of DER BERLINER SALON, where it gained the appreciation of former VOGUE Germany Editor-in-Chief Christiane Arp. This time, Meyer-Leclère showcased his design as part of a runway show at MBFW. 

The collection “Sensible Ensemble“ celebrates the beauty of diversity, being together, and enjoying being free. The designer’s central concept was to create coats to keep the wool industry going in times of the global warming crisis. 

The three-part presentation included performances by the Berlin Ensemble and an a cappella of Marlene Dietrich’s and Peter Seegers’ anti-war song “Tell me where the flowers are”.

The designs were themed “remake, reuse, reassemble” and included repurposed and reworked vintage and found articles dating back to the 1930s. As well as hand-knitted, crocheted, painted, and embroidered trousers, shorts, coats, tops, and accessories.

His collection is Lucas Meyer-Leclere’s response to the many adverse global events and a celebration of vibrancy, love, and passion. An impressive finish for this MBFW Berlin.

ESTETHICA TALK »INNOVATION, NEW LUXURY AND SUSTAINABILITY«

Panel Talk

Probably the most exciting and most asked questions currently moving the fashion world: How will we unite New Luxury with sustainability and innovation? What will the future of fashion look like? How will we define sustainability and luxury? What will the supply chain look like five years from now? 

Manuel Almeida Vergara, Style Editor at “Berliner Zeitung“, and his guests tried to get to the bottom of these questions. He talked with Orsola de Castro, Estethica, Waridi Schobsdorff, FA254, Sascha Huth from Acte TM and designer Dennis Chuene about the responsibilities and possibilities for a more sustainable approach as well as MBFW Berlin’s chance to be a sustainable leader in the international fashion scene. The results? Sustainability is at the very core of creation and should be the standard.

Collection Recap

The Austrian designer is known for her colourful collections and eccentric designs, as well as an exciting material mix. She has worked with a sustainable approach to creating her collections for years. 

Her newest collection, “FriederIKE“, is a celebration of romance, dreams, and freedom. Her designs mix romanticism and futurism, creating space to dream. With her signature, self-made prints, Ruétz gives this collection yet again her personal touch. 

Flowy silhouettes meet asymmetrical shapes, while vegan leather creates something unique. The designer created some volume on dresses and skirts while playing with raffles. They highlight the waist, giving the models a feminine look, while long, flowy sleeves make a unique touch. 

Rebekka Ruétz chose colours such as Marble White and Rose Glow and combined them with Grey Stone and Volcanic Black. Shades of gold and floral details provided a romantic vibe. 

Yet again, Rebekka Ruétz proved that she is always good for a surprise, sending some of her models on the runway with a bike. Not possible? Not with Rebekka Ruétz!

Malūne by Frida Weyer // SS23

Collection Recap

After already spending several years in the fashion world and managing her couture label, Frida Weyer dared to start all over again. Today, she showcased the first runway show of her newest adventure: MALŪNE by Frida Weyer.

This season, her new label takes a trip to the sea, where sun glazers and cotton candy skies set the tone. Inspired by these moments, Frida Weyer created a colour palette that was as soft and flattering as intended for a delightful summer vacation. 

Cowboy meets hippie meets bohemian on vacation. Her pieces are the embodiment of freedom and ease. To create flowy, light, elegant designs, Weyer primarily uses silk as her favourite fabric. The colour palette ranges from candy pink to lime green and bright colours mixed with black for the evening looks. The highlight of the collection were the coats and jackets appearing to protect the models and their light from being dimmed. 

Frida Weyer showed soft bomber jackets with bold pastel prints dressed down with feminine appeal and matching mini skirts. Wearable dresses with ruffled details and, of course, her popular kimonos.

Giving the new shapes and forming playful elements by using second-hand materials like jeans and printed t-shirts, yet still being able to create exciting and desirable feminine designs. 

The collection’s highlight was not only the super-diverse cast but her approach to creating. Laura Gerte knows how to deconstruct and modify everyday staples like denim into state-of-the-art high-fashion pieces. Further highlights were body suits and shirts with digital prints and recycled vintage shirts that Laura Gerte turned into dresses.

Her first fashion show proved the exceptional talent Laura Gerte brings to the German fashion landscape, and one should keep an eye on her upcoming creative works.

Kilian Kerner // SS23

Collection Recap

The Berlin-native designer is an established creative voice in the German fashion landscape, showing his collection for the 23rd time. He dedicated his collection to all his icons – be it international superstars or German actresses who sparked Kilian’s inspiration by living their unique style.

“It’s about icons of modern times, icons of fashion, my personal heroes – people I admire and who inspire me. People who impact the world with how they express themselves. People who live for fashion and carry their style around the globe”, states the designer about his inspiration. 

How does he translate this into his newest collection? It was playful yet sexy, feminine, glamorous, and at the same time sporty. Every icon has its very own sense of style that Kilian Kerner caught and translated into his newest pieces. 

The collection’s highlight was a sparkling maxi dress covered in crystals as well as tie-dyed corduroy ensembles transporting a sense of 90s nostalgia.

MBFW X UFW SHOW BOBKOVA // SS23

Collection Recap

In cooperation with the Ukrainian Fashion Week, this season, Ukrainian designer Bobkova presented the opening show of MBFW Berlin. 

Bobkova’s design language has always been minimalistic, with a strong focus on the craft and art of creating fashion. This season she showed monochrome looks with splashes of dark green and silver and contrasting ensembles in black and white.

With suits being Bobkova’s speciality, in this collection, feminine jackets and skirts of various silhouettes made an appearance. Not only did the shape draw attention to the suits but also the choice of fabric: Trousers were made out of wool and silk, showing a very relaxed fit while blending the masculine and feminine cuts perfectly. 

Bobkova works with recycled materials and tries to be as sustainable as possible. This season, the designer used production waste from knitwear and turned it into hand-knitted details like pockets and cuffs. Other hand-knitted pieces integrate traditional Ukrainian features, and a quilted stole is completed in patchwork technique. 

“I would like to showcase the culture and the unique Ukrainian traditions and crafts to the whole world”, says designer Kristina Bobkova about her inspiration for her brand. To do so this season, she collaborated with Ukrainian artist Illya Chichkan to create jewellery for the collection. His works have been exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and galleries in Europe, South and North America. He is part of the “Ukrainian New Wave” art movement, which developed in the 1990s.
