TRUE RELIGIONS: Bread & Butter chief Karl-Heinz Müller believes in denim — so much so that he freed up a seven-figure budget to build the Berlin Tempel of Denim in the trade fair’s Denim Base hall and added another six figures on top for a Denim Religion show. A select congregation of 200 denim world VIPs were whisked away from B&B’s pre-opening party Tuesday night in Berlin’s Tiergarten’s lakeside Café am Neuen See for a special blue midnight mass. Together they broke bread and took wine (a mellow burgundy) while seated at the 330-foot-long wooden table running down the temple’s center. The all-denominations tabletop show, which will be repeated during the fair, allowed divergent fabric faiths and creeds to meet in edgy celebration.
There were robed (denim or chambray, of course) mystics, pioneer prairie churchgoers, pious shepherds, Mad Max sects, chic Hassids, khaki converts, Japanese dark-denim pilgrims, a vestal virgin (in the palest pink-gray jeans), Sufis of sorts, Day of the Dead ghoulies, Lady Gaga followers – the outfits an all souls communion from assorted, unidentified denim brands that stylistically pushed the blue source beyond the comfort zone.
