4 Labels To Love At Berlin Fashion Week

Caroline Leaper

With a hot new location by the Brandenburg Gate, rising star bloggers a-go-go, plus a growing roster of gorgeously wearable brands, Berlin Fashion Week is fast becoming the must-see showcase for real life labels. Here are some of our favourite AW15 collections from the latest round of shows.... 

Marc Cain
One of Berlin Fashion Week’s biggest draws (hello Liz Hurley, Katie Holmes et al on the frow) Marc Cain has cemented its status as a German superbrand in the last few seasons. Tali Lennox opened the AW15 show in a floor length grey duster and was followed by a mash-up of retro tinged style staples. Teddy fuzz coats in sugary colours were teamed with mod miniskirts and patent knee high boots, while neck ties and glam rock dresses ruled for evening. Winter blues be gone.



Dorothee Schumacher

Dorothee’s luxe, tonal fabric mixes make for some of the most lust-worthy pieces at Berlin Fashion Week - and AW15 is no exception. The Düsseldorf-born designer paired fuchsia pony skin with butter soft pink leather, or feather trimmed boucle with structured satin, in some of her trademark tactile pairings.


Kilian Kerner
Hailing from Cologne, Kilian Kerner took two staple fashion motifs – camo print and pinstripes – and worked them together in entirely new click n’ clash combos. With great tailoring touches and acid colours running through, the collection popped as one of the stand-out offerings in the city.


Malaika Raiss 
Malaika’s cool, feminine collection contained everything a woman’s new winter wardrobe should – a sharp and bold tuxedo, casual but conceptual knitwear, plus denim in cool new crop jeans and asymmetric shirt dresses. We'll have to wait another nine months before we can get our hands on the pieces, but the klaxon for the AW15 season has officially been sounded ahead of the big four fashion weeks in February.
