His work is a statement in black, inspired by Berlin’s one of a kind nightlife culture.

BERLIN FASHION WEEK ROUNDUP - STUDIO183 BIKINI BERLIN STORE


We had lots of fun during Berlin Fashion Week, and while attending fashion events throughout the city we also organized our own in both of our locations.

Let’s recap what happened in our Bikini Berlin store during the course of the week!


I DREAM OF SHAPES X MARIE MAY ART INSTALLATION VERNISSAGE

image

We fused art and fashion at the opening night for the installation of the creative collaboration between the Scottish designer I Dream of Shapes and the French artist, Marie May on Tuesday, while Ben Smith and HC Kurtz provided the most progressive electronic tunes we danced to, and our generous sponsors, Dr. Koehler, Windspiel Manufaktur, Michelberger’s Fountain of Youth, and Kreutzbergs Regenerativum took care of the drinks for everyone.

The collaboration is very unique in its own right, the collection consists of individual, one-off pieces. Playful, hand-painted images of doll-eyed, beautiful young girls interweave in perfect harmony with the elegant kimono shapes of the designer celebrating feminine beauty.

BERLIN FASHION WEEK RECAP

Last week we had a ton of fun at our special events during Berlin Fashion Week. We also attended spectacular fashion shows, visited the biggest trade shows in town, discovered cool, new designers, and of course partied with fabulous fashionistas!

Let’s revisit what happened during this event-packed, fashion-heavy week!

MARTIN MARGIELA ARCHIVE POP-UP

We started the week in our Flagship Store in Mitte with a very special opening night for our Maison Martin Margiela Archive Vernissage and Pop-Up. We presented unique pieces, iconic accessories from the designer’s early collections, alongside lookbooks, exhibition catalogues, and original fashion show recordings from the ‘90s screened on VHS.

image

The fashion-pack joined in full force to celebrate the ever-relevant designer - thank you for everyone who joined us on this journey!

See the highlights of the night as a collection of images on our blogpost about the event!

AVEDA STYLING LOUNGE 

Our lovely group of influencers and the amazing Aveda Team made the second day of the week very special.

The influencers selected their favourite pieces from our designers, while the professional hairstylists and make-up artists of Aveda brought out their best features before they posed for photographer, Mark Hunt.

The bloggers also picked a goodie bag full of treats from Aveda, Uslu Airlines, Frau Tonis Parfum, Wildcorn, DÖRRWERK, and Citykeks.

IVANMAN FASHION SHOW AND DISPLAY

On Tuesday many designers showed their latest collections on the runway, but we specifically liked IVANMAN, who also displayed his strongest pieces on the Designer Shop floor of MBFWB. Playing with workwear references and clubbing appropriate pieces in royal blue and black, with patches of neon yellow, orange and green thrown into the mix.

IOANA CIOLACU FASHION SHOW

LIVE ART-FASHION PERFORMANCE with CHRISTINA KNOBBE

On the last day of Berlin Fashion Week we had the chance to present the spellbinding performance of our resident Berlin artist, Christina Knobbe. The artist painted her signature style live onto a garment worn by our wonderful model, Maurice. Christina’s abstract swirling shapes kept us hypnotised for quite a while!
