As seen on the Marc Cain catwalk at Berlin Fashion Week
Ladies, don’t get rid of your glitter pieces just yet, because they’re coming back next season, big time. Marc Cain set the tone for Fashion Month with a sterling catwalk show at Berlin Fashion Week, and there was one piece in particular that got everyone talking: a silver sequin crop top.
I’ve got a feeling Marc Cain‘s creative director Karin Veit knew it would be a showstopper piece, because it was the very last look of the show, modelled by one of the hottest models of the moment: Georgia Fowler.
Georgia teamed it with shimmering knitted shorts and THESE thigh-high silver boots. Seriously, check them out.
Nice right? The overall effect is laid-back and cool but dressy enough to party in. Which was really the vibe of the show, with models having fun and walking the runway to empowering tunes. There’s no doubt about it, athleisure is here to stay for AW18, but it’s all about playing around with different colour palettes and textures.
In case you don’t believe me, it wasn’t just Georgia who was a fan of the sequin top, because the major Berlin street style players all gave it their seal of approval. Nina Suess (300k Instagram followers) and Stefanie Giesinger (3m followers) both cited it as their favourite look from the show, so you know it’s the piece to invest in.
Blogger and model Caro Daur added, ‘My favourite look from the show was probably the one with the orange faux fur jacket (I had the honour of wearing it to the show). I love the colour mix between orange, white and black. Every simple look gets a special touch with the jacket!’
However if sequins aren’t your thing, then there were some other strong looks in the Marc Cain show. One of my favourite trends was the luxe take on pyjamas which most definitely aren’t to be worn in the bedroom.
Think rich patterns, jewel shades and velour details which elevate the staple to a chic evening look.
Expect lots of colour blocking too, with models wearing the same colour head-to-toe, right down to the tights.

There’s no doubt about it, Marc Cain and Berlin just set the tone for next season.
Over to you New York, London, Milan and Paris…
