the anja gockel fashion show kicked off the morning–which unfortunately we missed.later this afternoon vogue hosted its annual salon at the hotel de rome. we entertained the notion of attending the fashion blogger cafe but the show room was way out in treptow which just sounded like too long of a hike.
a few hours ago we did a drive by of the richard kravetz presentation. his spring/summer 2012 collection is on disply for about 30 more minutes in the touristy hackescher markt area of berlin. the intial impression of the presentation was yes, the clothes are classic with a late 50s/early 60s influence that would’ve made anne sexton’s day back in the day. and that perhaps kravetz is obsessed with primary colours. but that’s not a bad thing.
at 6pm-ish we made our way to mitte’s mail gallery strip for the Konk Pop-up Store cocktail party. i have to say, we loved the Konk Pop-up Store event. it was on a small side street in the middle of the main gallery strip in mitte. just across the way was an old dance parlor straight out of the 1920s which now also doubles as a restaurant. and the eigen+art gallery which represents some of the best painters in germany like neo rauch. later we’ll add photos. –not of eigen+art, but of the event.
so what about the clothes? well, the t-shirts were funky in a good way. the dresses featured colourful prints. this season seems to be all about colour. which is completely acceptable.
