Zukker means “sugar” (spelled zucker) in German, but the label’s first Berlin Fashion Week show was more zesty than sweet. Bright chartreuse lit up a cohesive collection with a strong sense of fun and silhouettes that swung between androgynous — such as well-cut, mannish black and gray trousers in a thick wool — and sassy clubwear that included a fitted chartreuse sheer mesh dress not intended for wallflowers.

Other prominent looks included oversize kimono sleeves on a long, black dress and a loose gray coatdress that closed with a plastic buckle. Sebastian Schettler — one third of the design team that also includes Benjamin Kraeher and Heike Becker — said the label’s aesthetic is more “Scandinavian than Berlin,” but the trio’s relaxed approach is likely to find favor with the young crowd in the capital.
