Schumacher Fall/Winter 2010

Schumacher opened Berlin Fashion Week this January and presented 'Rebels, Rule Breakers and True Romantics' - a very elegant, feminine collection for the 2010/11 fall/winter season. Different high class materials were wildly mixed with each other and combinations like denim and a neopren top with fur covered shoulders were shown. Shiny fabrics add extra glamour as do sequins and rhinestone applications. Just like the materials the cuts were also mixed - cocooning and classic, tailored cuts - wide coats, skinny trousers, very short skirts and flowing tops. Lovely details like fabric flowers around the neck or fur collars complete the elegant looks. The pieces are mainly kept in dark or earthy shades but there are also interesting colour highlights. A wearable collection with many surprising details.
