MALAIKARAISS AW 14/15
My Fashion Week debut I celebrated at MalaikaRaiss. The opening look of Franzi Müller convinced me this fashion show I will not forget about in a while.
Suddenly, the lights went out, the spots turned on the catwalk and the music began. When the first model entered the runway; I got goose bumps all over. Then everything happened very quickly and I tried to absorb as many impressions as possible and at the same time snap some pictures for later. What a stress.
The models moved gracefully and elegantly. It was fascinating to see that they really looked straight face and quite rigid, as if they had fixed an imaginary point at the end of the catwalk, consistently headed out. Some had something grouchy, others had that little twinkle in the eyes. The first amber coloured looks I was not totally convinced with, and I can not imagine myself in an all-over organza costume. Perhaps in 20 years?
The way MalaikaRaiss mixed the different shades of green with powdery shades in rosé, grey, dusty blue and stronger colours such as cognac and black, I found very well done and a bit brave. I did not have the colour green on my radar, but the jumpsuit designed by Katrin Thormann made me think of Berlin spring and cycling around in exactly that. There was so much to look at, so much attention in the details and choices of materials. Knitwear combined in honeycomb and herringbone pattern to fine silk and organza, soft angora and buttery soft leather.
I think the design of MalaikaRaiss is very feminine, clear and suitable for everyday use and that is why I can relate to it. With each look, there was always something I’d also like to have in my wardrobe or a detail that fascinated me. The looks were very elegant, but at the same time, they exude a certain nonchalance. The hair was tied loosely to a deep topknot. The make-up was natural and discreetly held. As accessories there were earrings by Sabrina Dehoff and scarves made of leather or silk with a green crystal print. Since I ‘m not a big fan of turtleneck, I find the combination with a small scarf very successful.
After 10 minutes, the show was already over. But what remains in my mind; a lot of colourful impressions, a catchy tune by Florence and the Machine ” Addicted to Love” and a green scarf in the crystal print from the collection shown, which was in the goodie bag.
