In her second foray at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, Estonian-born, Finland-based designer Margit Peura showed elegant and angled separates made from mostly certified organic linen, cotton and wild silk. Her Whitetail stage presentation, a capsule collection of 12 looks, played with cuts, layers and uneven structures.

A sleek jumpsuit offered elongated ease, while crisp pleated culottes and shorts — both long and short — were paired with button downs and open-back blouses. Japanese influences were evident in a belted jacket and dress with kimono sleeves, while some of the draped, folded and fixed pieces were reminiscent of Furoshiki wrapping. The calm palette of navy, off-white, and greige tweed was inspired, said Peura, by a different location: the sandy rocks and sea of Barcelona beaches.
