What can one infer about the Berlin fashion community from looking at the city's fashion week attendees? First of all, the crowd puts a premium on comfort. Loose-fitting silhouettes abounded — pants were wide legged or drop-crotched and dresses were A-line or flowey. The easy shapes, however, were canvasses for some head-to-toe prints, in florals, fruits and black and white graphic stripes. Clearly the theme in the German capital last week was balanced boldness. Not too minimal, not too wild — just Berlin.
