Designer Sedina Halilovic said Yves Saint Laurent was Holy Ghost’s major inspiration for fall, which was evident throughout the 34 looks in this young Munich-based label’s second Berlin showing. In contrast to last season’s light and bright palette, this one was all about black, charcoal and bits of burgundy. The opening look, with two bellhop-boys escorting a bell man’s cart carrying a model wearing a sharp black ponyskin coat, tuxedo shirt with bow tie, black skinny trousers and burgundy fedora set the tone for a series of well-constructed cocktail looks.
Lace was used in peek-a-boo ways, either to expose the back or reveal the décolleté. Still going strong was Holy Ghost’s signature jumpsuit, which was modified six times with either an open back, front pleats or tuxedo stripes. While certainly not for a day at the office, the red velvet two-piece HotPants suit with butt ruffles was noteworthy, yet Halilovic saved the best for last: a printed silk scarf gown in turquoise and emerald green, a limited-edition cooperation with Munich accessories brand Roeckl.

“There’s a huge gap between the old way of doing things and today. It takes the youth to help evolve that. You have to count on the kids today to help lead you into the future. A lot of these retailers are stuck in the past. Communication is the biggest thing,” said @ronniefieg of @kith on the youth’s role in retail. On Monday night, Jeff Staple moderated a keynote session with Fieg and @syresmith at Assembly - a series of workshops, talks and keynotes addressing topics or issues in the apparel industry.
