Sadak is exploring dark obsessions

As usual this is long time over due. But meanwhile life happened and I ain’t sorry, I ain’t sorry, nah, I ain’t sorry. Maybe a little bit, cuz I like Sadak so much. Actually this label is making Berlin Fashion Week worth going. No hate tho.

The AW  2016  collection,  designed by  Sasa  Kovacevic  in collaboration   with   HRH   Prince   Fahad   bin   Faisal   al   Saud, is translating the elements of folk symbols and disrupting traditional technique  into  digital  contemporary  design. HRH   Prince   Fahad   bin   Faisal   al   Saud  and  Sasa  Kovacevic  were  exploring  the  darkest obsessions through  powerful  silhouettes,  where  the  precision  of  tailoring  is used   to  a   backdrop   to   showcase   fragments   of   history  and  an intimate reality.

The   collection   mixes   a   variety   of   design   prints   and   colors, influenced by the strong urban culture layered together with high end sportswear and a fitted tailoring. using organic cotton fabrics and  silk  in addition to contrast  with  extraordinary  designed  prints demonstrating   masterful   construction,   a   sporty  elegance and pride in individuality.

Julian Zigerli SS16

Julian Zigerli presented his Spring/Summer 2016 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, overtaking a public park to stage a guerrilla fashion show. All the guests were informed about the secret location via text message earlier the day. And the idea of a secret fashion show is the dopest thing ever. And thank God the spot was next to my hotel…

Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, Julian Zigerli‘s spring-summer 2016 collection “White Rabbit” plays with the strong contrasts that can be found in the Japanese culture, naturally flirting with the cute and lovely as much as with the dark and twisted.
For this collection, the prints are the result of an encounter made in Tokyo with Seitaro Ito, the illustrator behind ‘Foxy Illustrations’ – famous for his hand drawn vintage looking characters, including some cheeky and rather sarcastic bunnies, teddy bears and pin-ups.
Julian Zigerli has built upon these cute drawings to develop an aesthetic focused on the handmade feel of illustration, playing with the proportions of the cartoon characters, fake shadow effects, ink stains and wooden finishing. A visual language applied on shades of light blues, greys and darker tones to bring a slightly dramatic dimension to the collection – setting the scenery in one of those haunted Japanese forests, whilst chasing this kawaii white rabbit! Good stuff y’all.

Franziska Michael SS16

It was hot! Like mad hot. And I am not talking about the weather, but about FRANZISKA MICHAEL‘s SS16 collection during MBFWB.

In 2009 FRANZISKA MICHAEL founded her eponymous label which transcended boundaries only by its designation, and demonstrated the independent appearance of the brand. Far from the standard which can be found in today’s fashion world, she defines her style through strong contrasts, courage for innovation and incisive prints. Spontaneously refreshing and juggling with extremes – FRANZISKA’s inspiration and fascination arose from the heart of the 90’s era. FRANZISKA MICHAEL’s looks are characterised and inspired from oversized cuts and a strong consistent unisex character.

And Berlin Fashion Week just does not make any sense without FRANZISKA MICHAEL’s input. So I probably would have not even gone to Berlin if I didn’t get any invite.

Sadak SS16

On July 8th SADAK showed his upcoming SS16 collection during Mercedes-Benz-Fashion Week Berlin. The collection by Serbian designer Sasa Kovacevic embarks upon a journey of post-modern islamic culture by showing men wearing backless Niqabs (traditionally worn by muslim women) that break with conventional gender roles.

Deconstructed blazer, golden chocker over socks, prints of palms, veiled women and golden wheels as well as typographical details such as “Error” and “You + Me = <3” complete the collection that comes in pastel tones such as blue, rose, lilac and contrary bold black. Sadak is the best label that MBFWB has to offer! Like who cares about all these bougie ass evening fashion shows, when you can have hardcore street fashion?! And besides the fashion pieces I really appreciate the selection of models, because every model has it’s own individual look. And this just reflects Sadak’s message of pride in individuality. And I don’t want to start talking about the music, because everything is just perfect.

A fashion week without SADAK wouldn’t be the same.  You are badass!Sadak ss16

Adidas Tubular Gallery

Adidas invited me to get a look at their new Adidas Tubular collection in Berlin. And when Adidas calls, you better be there.

The problem about events like these are that I use to fall in love with the fashion pieces like from 0 to 100 real quick. And there was one pair of sneakers that I literally hold in my hands for 5 minutes. It reached the point where it was kinda awkward and I got jealous when somebody else was looking at it. And there were a lot of eyes on it, because the gallery was mad crowded.

So I kinda left heartbroken, but still the collection is dope af.

Sopopular SS16

MBFWB kicked off with Sopopular.

Sopopular crafts its seasonal menswear collections as timeless wardrobe essentials, always homegrown in their Berlin atelier. The garments are sensibly constructed to allow for elegant movement and interaction. Masculine, composed and with a touch of majestic urban elements, the silhouette merges strong defined shapes with sharp tailoring. Architectural sharp lines are morphed purposely with intelligent details and functional utility solutions.
For SS16 the brand chose an almost monochrome look with a lot of cut-outs (not shown in the pictures below) and a color shade that is just perfect: black, white and green. And the looks were perfectly matched with the right shade of Palladium boots.

Check out my favorite looks here:
