Top Five Looks from Berlin Fashion Week

Berlin’s burgeoning Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this week veered (surprisingly) toward the sophisticated and refined — even ladylike. But worry not, the city’s reputation for cutting-edge irreverence shone through as well. Here, ARTINFO picks our five savviest fall ‘13 looks…

It was nice to see the continued use of oxblood at Schumacher (first from left), especially so on a fur skirt.

Patrick Mohr (second from left) went for freak-show chic. We especially like the angled fabric down the forearm of the leather sleeve. Ironically, this collection was designed in collaboration with Reebok Classics.

Miranda Konstantinidou (third from left) channels a Berlin-based artist in residence taking a weekend in Mallorca. Beachwear done Bavarian!

Dimitri (fourth from left) showed this look consisting of leather cigarette pants, blocky ’90s sandals and a tiered rabbit-fur coat. Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, take note!

And finally, Barre Noire’s 3D pendant (below) in day-glow yellow is big enough to be a statement, but simple enough for everyday wear…
