There’s been considerable interest in Louise Friedlaender’s modern way with local handcrafts, including weaving, knitting and goldsmithing. For fall, her second presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, Friedlaender delivered on the buzz with precise tailoring: wide pants; long skirts that were wrapped, slit and often asymmetrical; blazers and coats paired with knitwear that was made in nearby Brandenburg. But there were enough matronly fabrics and fits to bog down the lineup. Titled “Tears Go By,” the collection was about overcoming grief, a feeling emphasized by teardrop-shaped cutouts and jewelry. Patchwork pieces in wool and velvet with embroidery weren’t exactly light.
