Designers Sarah Büren and Sonja Hodzode chose a crumbling empty storefront lit with horizontally strung florescent bulbs to present their latest Blame capsule collection, entitled Aurora. The nine looks were inspired by winter dawn in blustery Berlin, worked in somber gradients of black, grays and dusty rose — quite a contrast compared to Blame’s recent exuberant print-filled outings. Taupe leather was used for a skater skirt, slouchy pants and a cropped top with three-quarter length sleeves, while elsewhere, insets of crocheted panels and vintage lace added texture. A tight bustier dress with an underbust cutout was topped with a cropped biker jacket lined in nubby brown plush. The designers’ sense for detail peeked through the gloom with pink piping on cuffs and hems.
