Check back for the latest collections from Berlin Fashion Week.

1913Berlin: Designer Yujia’s mostly cashmere looks included wrapped scarves, fingerless gloves and legwarmers.

Achtland: California surfers and Verbier skiers met in the brand’s fall collection.

Augustin Teboul: Berlin’s dark duo Annelie Augustin and Odély Teboul delivered a pan-ethnic influenced procession for their off-site presentation, which they named Somewhen.

Barre Noire: Spinning disco balls, neon light projections and blaring club tunes set the scene for Barre Noire’s unabashedly bright party gear.

Blaenk: Designers Silke Geib and Nadine Möllenkamp said they were inspired by Louise Bourgeois’ installation series “The Cells.”


Blame: The nine looks were inspired by winter dawn in blustery Berlin, worked in somber gradients of black, grays and dusty rose

C’est Tout:
This collection was no-holds-barred in its brazen sexiness.

Dawid Tomaszewski: Closing Berlin’s official lineup with a powerful collection, Dawid Tomaszewski was inspired by the often melancholy Fado music of Portugal.


Dimitri
: Aquamarine graphic prints covered tighter-than-tight leggings and short sheath dresses, often counterbalanced by plump fox furs.

Esther Perbandt: Always androgynous, her avant-garde tailored reconstructions went a bit more gender-bending this time.

Franziska Michael: The designer was inspired by the tales of the Brothers Grimm.

Frida Weyer: The collection was overflowing with princess-y party frocks.


Guido Maria Kretschmer: The designer’s Africa-inspired collection was characteristically opulent.


Hien Le
: The designer took a more sensuous turn with a shimmery ombré print.

Holy Ghost: Designer Sedina Halilovic said Yves Saint Laurent was a major inspiration for fall.


Hugo: Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, Hugo finally got their guys and gals together.


Isabell de Hillerin:
In her somber studio presentation, jackets with capes and drapes fell with a sculpted stiffness in black wool, touched with raised dark green embroidery.

Issever Bahri: Inspired by Istanbul’s art nouveau architectural heritage, designers Derya Issever and Cimen Bachri beautifully combined light and linearity.

 

Kilian Kerner: Kilian Kerner tried marking his label’s dramatic decade benchmark with high drama silhouettes this season.

 

Julian Zigerli: The designer showed a sporty menswear mix of quirky prints and performance fabrics that drew a standing room-only crowd.

Lala Berlin: Leyla Piedayesh experimented with a variety of bold prints this season, but her shapes stayed true to form with the brand’s perennial favorites.

Laurèl: Elisabeth Schwaiger demonstrated that metallic leather cigarette pants, silver fox-fur jackets and shiny jersey make for more stylish shuttle wear.

Leandro Cano: The Spanish designer’s other-worldly vision was primarily white and off-white with some pieces in wine shades and a foray into Renaissance trellis prints.

 

Malaikaraiss: Malaika Raiss took few risks for fall, and primarily showed the kind of loose cuts and slouchy forms she’s proven capable of in the past.


Marc Stone:
The men’s collection was comprised of simple lines and a basic palette in keeping with Berlin’s current craze for minimalism.

Marcel Ostertag: The collection, which the designer named Meet Me in Scotland Darling, put the tart in tartan.

Michael Sontag: Sontag’s collection remained all about construction, or the lack of it, with looks that seemed deceptively simple or incomprehensibly complicated.

Michalsky: Michael Michalsky sent his homeboys uptown in a fall collection that took a dapper approach to army/navy store influences.

 

Patrick Mohr: Notable was a leather dress with metal and wood details and his men’s “strait jacket” with restraints in canvas and leather.

Perret Schaad: Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad never met a straight line they didn’t slant, and for fall the duo was once again all about asymmetry.

Rena Lange: In his final collection for Rena Lange, designer Carsten Feilitz drew inspiration from Piet Mondrian.

Schumacher: The saying “every rose has its thorn” was the inspiration for Dorothee Schumacher, and her blooms were bold and opulent.

Sissi Goetze Men’s: The designer’s pared-down silhouettes consciously play with a sense of innocence.

Sopopular: The collection proved that designer Daniel Blechman is capable of more than just his trademark hip-hop wear.

Vladimir Karaleev: While the designer’s first foray into prints was the news last season, fall saw Karaleev extend his avant-garde reach to men.
