Berlin Fashion Week_Su_16


MBFW was happening once again.Summer 16 will be soft and delicate, the return of the 70`s will rule, but also bright prints will enrich the stores next season : BOOMING BLOOM is the name of this trend theme from us for MODEUROP and the ILM. Even if the last issue of the legendary  BBB was a disappointing finish before the Zalando edition starts next year.The Panorama fair performed on a very high level, new brands, and the new Nova hall brought refreshment. The Premium fair was busy and solid as expected with great new brands. The Seek and Bright were a great attraction for ubran minimal and sleek buyers, the location at the Arena is established and fantastic. Let’s hope that the new owner of the Bright exhibition brings the fair further forward. The raw indigo driven Selvedge Run will be for sure a magnet in the new location next season. Our favorite Designer Catwalk shows during the fashion week was: BOBBY KOLADE and  SADAK !!!

ANTEPRIMA_leather fair trends 16_17


The Anterprima fair in Milan presented once again a creative and vibrating selection of the most edgy italian tanneries. The retune of black, the new “natural” vibe and some eclectic color flashes proved that winter 16_17 will be thrilling. One very interesting new tendency was the strong  shift towards high tech finishings. For us the Anteprima was again a MUST see fair espeically when you  are looking for an early trend overview for the key trend and leather directions.

Insight concept store Bari


During our recent Italy trip we had to notice once again: Italians doing it better ! In Bari the pearl of south Italy, a city with only 322,000 inhabitants, we discovered the wonderful concept store INSIGHT: an incredibly well curated store with a portfolio from MM6 Martin Margiela to ODEUR and the most popular street goth brand KTZ. On top you can find a good selection of Italian upcoming design talents like Lucio Vanotti  as well as shoes and bags. A MUST SEE STORE !!!!

The store is located in the historical center of the old town in Bari:
Via Re Manfredi 48/49 (Piazza Mercantile)

BLACK vs WOOD_the ultra minimal store design by Hidden Fortress


Our friends from the design studio Hidden Fortress have created the ultra flexible interior design concept for the new concept store Bazar Noir. We love the mix of ultra black in combination with the clean wood elements. The boxed-in floating staircase is another highlight of the store. ”The challenge was to realize the same [black] tone in a variety of surfaces, materials and production methods,” said the designers in an interview at deezen magazine.

The Bazar Noir store is located in the heart of Kreuzberg, Berlin and offers rare goods from local and international brands and designers. “Our carefully selected mix of handcrafted small furniture, objects, books, and art is defined by a simple yet avant-garde style.”

“Manuelle Textilfärbung mit Algen: Die Berliner Designer Essi Johanna Glomb und Rasa Weber haben ein Verfahren zum Färben von Textilien entwickelt, das auf Mikroalgen statt Chemie setzt. In ihrem Designstudio Blond & Bieber haben sie dazu einen Drucker gebaut, der vollständig manuell betrieben wird.” Zitat vom profashionals Artikel.
