Sure, we were still tired from the previous day, but there was no rest for those of us following Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and we eagerly wanted more. Although the notorious Fashion Week fatigue slowly started to kick in, we ventured out to the urban district Mitte. First of all we recharged our batteries with a yummy vegan lunch at Charlie’s Asian Bakery. Then we headed directly to the “LNFA meets BlogFabrik” event where street style trends by brands such as Incase, Woodtime Fashion or Trinitas were presented.
Everyone was already gearing up for the afternoon runway shows when we sallied out to the Rebekka Ruetz “Funkart” presentation. We can’t say we didn’t see this coming: The collection was again representing her home Tirol.
Rebekka Ruetz has become known for her pieces rooted in fine tradition and their gravitation toward lavish prints. She is the type of designer that when she has an idea for a collection, it grows into a whole story. The models came stomping down the runway sporting ostentatious skirts with large prints that were a chic reinterpretation of the romantic Marie Antoinette penchant. At times it looked a little too literal, although unpicking the historical references is always interesting. Definitely this was a far cry from the sleek and gloomy look we saw last season in her FW 2016 collection.
