Barre Noire: Spinning disco balls, neon light projections and blaring club tunes set the scene for Barre Noire’s unabashedly bright party gear.
Blaenk: Designers Silke Geib and Nadine Möllenkamp said they were inspired by Louise Bourgeois’ installation series “The Cells.”
Dawid Tomaszewski: Closing Berlin’s official lineup with a powerful collection, Dawid Tomaszewski was inspired by the often melancholy Fado music of Portugal.
Dimitri: Aquamarine graphic prints covered tighter-than-tight leggings and short sheath dresses, often counterbalanced by plump fox furs.
Guido Maria Kretschmer: The designer’s Africa-inspired collection was characteristically opulent.
Hien Le: The designer took a more sensuous turn with a shimmery ombré print.
Hugo: Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, Hugo finally got their guys and gals together.
Isabell de Hillerin: In her somber studio presentation, jackets with capes and drapes fell with a sculpted stiffness in black wool, touched with raised dark green embroidery.
Issever Bahri: Inspired by Istanbul’s art nouveau architectural heritage, designers Derya Issever and Cimen Bachri beautifully combined light and linearity.
Kilian Kerner: Kilian Kerner tried marking his label’s dramatic decade benchmark with high drama silhouettes this season.
Julian Zigerli: The designer showed a sporty menswear mix of quirky prints and performance fabrics that drew a standing room-only crowd.
Malaikaraiss: Malaika Raiss took few risks for fall, and primarily showed the kind of loose cuts and slouchy forms she’s proven capable of in the past.
Marc Stone: The men’s collection was comprised of simple lines and a basic palette in keeping with Berlin’s current craze for minimalism.
Michael Sontag: Sontag’s collection remained all about construction, or the lack of it, with looks that seemed deceptively simple or incomprehensibly complicated.
Michalsky: Michael Michalsky sent his homeboys uptown in a fall collection that took a dapper approach to army/navy store influences.
Patrick Mohr: Notable was a leather dress with metal and wood details and his men’s “strait jacket” with restraints in canvas and leather.
Perret Schaad: Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad never met a straight line they didn’t slant, and for fall the duo was once again all about asymmetry.
Vladimir Karaleev: While the designer’s first foray into prints was the news last season, fall saw Karaleev extend his avant-garde reach to men.
