Berlin Fashion Week Fall 2014: The top 10 moments from this burgeoning style scene


Berlin Fashion Week Fall 2014 Top 10

Any Berliner worth their passport will tell you that their native city takes many other things more seriously (72-hour stretches of clubbing, for example) than fashion. This notion is mostly upheld, if only from a practical point-of-view—the girls wear flats, and the boys never wear plaid. But, with each edition of Berlin Fashion Week, it appears that the city has become a little more comfortable with its power on the runway. Still relatively-new in its 14th season, the Berlin tents have become a breeding ground for a cool, calm, and, above all else, considerate style ideology, edging out other Mercedes Benz-run weeks (except New York, duh), as a top contender for international glory.

The first round of Fall 2014 shows welcomed 50 designers from across Northern Europe, and, even more exciting were the 11 debuts alone, from a young newcomer who received orders from Lady Gaga, like, five minutes ago, and a Russian sartorial empress-in-the-making who has already dressed Naomi Campbell. The potential for breakout success is palatable, with well-heeled Anglos like Georgia May Jagger and Elizabeth Hurley spotted front row. And while all these street style blogs like to portray Berlin as the city of dark, unapologetic black and slouchy fits (which, fine, it is), there’s also an emerging, beautiful trend toward elegance and opulence to be found that is anti-Berlin indeed, but echoes back to Germany’s golden Enlightenment era—you know, pre-1914. Here’s 10 of our favourite moments and designer picks from Berlin Fashion Week’s Fall 2014 shows.

See the ’90s Supermodels look on the 2013 runways »

Fierceness, thy name is Naomi. And Linda. And Cindy. Recognized in fashion circles by their first names alone, ’90s supermodels are the latest icons to ride the decade’s wave of nostalgia into our already punk-, grunge- and angst-heavy wardrobes.

Known now as the Supers, the larger-than-life model pack fronted by Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington ruled not only the runway but the cultural zeitgeist as well. They were everywhere, starring in George Michael’s epic “Freedom 90” music video, appearing in a Time Magazine cover story, even launching a chain of Fashion Cafes. And while they wore everything from skin-tight Alaïa bandage dresses to Versace scarf print leggings, their look was ultimately defined by a 1991 photo shoot that captured the high-impact collision between the supermodel phenomenon and the moto trend. Lensed by Peter Lindbergh for Vogue, it featured a Marlon Brando-meets-Madonna blend of hardware-heavy motorcycle jackets, ball skirts and pleated minis with embellished leather caps and Chanel pearls.

Oh, Wimbledon, one of the rare occasions where fashion and sports come together. The prestigious British tennis tournament—known for its royal patronage and its heavy supply of strawberries and cream—doubles as the perfect backdrop for It-Brits and out-of-town celebs to outshine each other courtside. The event promises world-class people watching with annual appearances by the Middleton clan, David and Victoria Beckham and Anna Wintour.

Yesterday marked the opening day of this year’s Wimbledon tournament and the spectators were definitely on their fashion A-game. Wimbledon regular Pippa Middleton took in the action from the royal box where she and Kate Middleton—who’s now too pregnant to attend—have sat in years past. Also spotted was British supermodel Naomi Campbell, who took in the tennis from the Evian Live Young VIP Suite.

MTV’s House of Style is back! But who will replace Cindy and Naomi?

In a bygone time, supermodels ruled the world, walking pack-like down a Versace runway or gathering en masse in front of Peter Lindbergh’s lens. Alone they were already unstoppable, but these Amazon women were also friends, a supermodel gang that had the world watching their every move. This supermodel-obsessed era was known as the ‘90s, and the true archeological evidence of this time was a show known as House of Style. In some of the most amazing news we’ve heard all week, MTV has just today announced the cult favourite will be returning in October, this time as a more digitally based series with lots of social media crossover.

Running from 1989 to 1999, the show’s 72 episodes not only captured the enormous power these women had at the time (in one episode, longtime host Cindy Crawford talks about how she once killed time trying to figure out how much money she made per minute) but the behind-the-scenes goings-on of their lives and of the fashion industry as a whole. The show took these seemingly untouchable beauties and made them a bit more real. Case in point: Naomi Campbell unabashedly applying zit cream on-camera.
