Blaenk Spring/Summer 2014

One of my highlights at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin this month was the spring/summer 2014 collection by Blaenk. The completely kept in white couture pieces made my fashion heart beat faster. The collection was presented at the Dutch embassy in a deliberately reduced installation. Together with the works of Dutch glass artist Bernard Heesen an interesting setting between fashion and modern architecture has been created. The designers Silke Geib and Nadine Möllenkamp reduced the colour palette this season to the cleanest of all colours: white. This was the best colour choice for those beautiful timeless pieces as it represents lightness, clarity, perfection, beginning, innocence, modesty and truth. The collection is based on the main principle of up-cycling and beautiful vintage materials have been turned into new beautiful pieces with outstanding finishings, extensive manufacturing and an experimental twist. I just loved the whole setting at the embassy, the weather was great and I totally fell in love with the beautiful collection. The designers have so much love for detail which is reflected in each piece and the closer you look the more exciting details you'll discover.
