MBFW Berlin: Mongrels in Common SS2012

While I disappeared for the past two days somewhere between work, feeling sick, attending a prom back home and flying over to Berlin again it’s been all a little stressful with updating my blog. Nevertheless, I finally found the time to go over all of those loads of pictures and this made me re-think about all of my impressions. Especially, when it comes to the label Mongrels in Common, which I never heard outside of Germany. It was an honour to attend the show, no question about that, but how does this collection differ from the one I saw before? I know that there’s just a very fine line between gaining my interest and getting me bored but all of this asymmetric cuts and jade-green and tangerine make me rather feel a breeze of repetition than letting me see what spring/summer should be about in Christine Pluess and Livia Ximénez-Carillo‘s version.
The only thing, which seems timeless yet so lovely, is that simple bun all the models were having as a clean hair-do.
Some other pictures of that day are additionally included in this post.
