In their Berlin debut, Sarajevo-born, German-bred and Belgium-trained Vera and Olivera Capara delivered an arty collection for an arty town: Renaissance painter Pieter Brueghel prompted rounded silhouettes and open backs; modern Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen’s soft nude tones informed some looks, and contemporary German painter Katharina Grosse’s bold palette was reflected in the fine ink-jet and silk-screen prints and jacquards.

Standouts included rounded constructions such as the short-sleeved cocoon coat with attached scarf and the puffy sweaters, as well as the more linear jumpsuits with patterned sleeves. The sisters founded Capara in Antwerp in 2009, and though titled “I’m in the Moment,” this fall collection makes it easy to picture their earlier stints at Dries Van Noten, Martin Margiela and Jil Sander.
