Berlin Fashion Week (I): Minimalism and Futurism

From pure lines and simple shapes to flamboyant styles, Berlin proved to be, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, a strong candidate for the title of 'ultimate fashion capital'.

Berlin Fashion Week started on Thursday, July 17 with a presentation of the HUGO collection for Spring/Summer 2009 that struck a minimalist note. Belgian designer Bruno Pieters presented his second collection for the well-known German brand.

Stockholm Fashion Week spring/summer 2009 (I)

Stockholm Fashion Week (days, to be more accurate), held from June 30th till July 2nd, has put on show fresh Northern ideas for spring 2009 season, gathering well-known brands such as Acne and Cheap Monday as well as up-and-coming designers nominated for the Mercedes-Benz Young Fashion Industry Award.

Acne sent forward tough and sophisticated looks, with strict cuts, straight lines and a minimalist color palette. Silly looking oversized ranger hats added a touch of humor to those punkish distressed denim jeans.
