Take a closer look: Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad have teamed with German actress Hannah Herzsprung and video artist collective Transforma to make a 3-D video for spring.The duo is known for their love for architecture, having presented at venues such as Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie, architect David Chipperfield’s headquarters, and a do-it-yourself market in the past.Further pushing conventional fashion presentation frames, the designers premiered a moving-picture tableau vivant to show their collection at the Stage during Berlin Fashion Week. The five-minute video features Herzsprung presenting selected looks in 360-degree views. The complete collection and “Perret Schaad for Silhouette,” a collaboration with eyewear brand Silhouette, was on display following the screening.“We wanted to concentrate on the clothes instead of highlighting a narrative. And we wanted to show how they work on real women instead of models. Hannah Herzsprung is an interesting woman with a great personality who we admire a lot, and who we think communicates Perret Schaad’s philosophy of independent, creative women perfectly,” Perret said.Perret and Schaad had yet another premiere just a week before: They designed the costumes for Japanese director Toshiki Okada’s play "Hot Pepper, Air Conditioner and The Farewell Speech" that was staged in Europe for the first time at theater festival Münchner Kammerspiele.

“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.
