This time the Berlin Fashion Week opened with a special collaboration. Ukraine is still under attack from Russia. While people fear for their homeland, the Ukrainian fashion week for many people the last thing on their mind right now. The organizers still want to maintain a bit of normality and give local designers the opportunity to show their art despite the current situation. That is why international fashion weeks have agreed to show fashion designers on their catwalks. In Berlin could Kristina Bobkova present their current collection as the first show of fashion week. The Ukrainian founded her label of the same name in 2000 and has been dedicated to her ever since minimalist style remained faithful. The mainly monochrome looks range from billowing dresses to oversized suits. Bobkova always tries to make her collections as sustainable as possible. This time, wool remnants can be found as details in patch pockets or on the ends of the sleeves, some of which are worn through traditional Ukrainian knitting techniques have arisen. The pieces of jewelery that the models wear around their necks or on their ears are also a homage to the handwork from the Ukraine and were created in collaboration with the artist Ilya Chichkan.

Dark stories and brightly colored dresses by Judith Bondy

Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin Reveal Their Idyllic Vacation!

The current collection “Metanoia” the Berlin designer Judith Bondy looks at first glance like something out of a dark fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm: Delicate tulle in bright colors meets black hoodies and corsets. The title “Metanoia” is Greek and means something like “doing penance” or – in the non-religious sense – changing one’s view of life. The keywords couldn’t be more apt, after all, the designer is (partially) saying goodbye to her Y2K pastel aesthetic from the last collection with darker tones. We’re writing partly because we can’t imagine Bondy without a good splash of color – and luckily, neither can the designer. So get blacks Sequin trousers and skirts have a bright green feather hem and the long neckholder dress is combined with a handbag – created in collaboration with artist and designer Niklas Jeroch – also with green handles. Of course, the playful ones are allowed too bondy tulle dresses are not missing in any of the label’s collections. This time there was a short orange version with a train reminiscent of lisianthus flowers, as well as a black version with which Bondy closed the show. Floor-length in see-through fabric with ruched detailing at the hips, the dress paints a bittersweet ending to a fairy tale in which the protagonist is transformed into a swan at the end.
