With the presentation of his spring/summer 2018 collection designer Vladimir Karaleev opened the last day at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. The designer is known very well for his extraordinary talent for material mix, deconstruction of pattern and transformation. Once more he presented simple cuts with asymmetrical layering alienated. The designers focus is still on the overlay of different forms and constructions and Karaleev also remains faithful to his typical styles in unisex look.
The collection consists of classic Marlene-trousers, long pullover-dresses, deep slits on skirts and dropped down shoulder parts on tops and blouses. Especially one wrapped underboob top attracted the audience attention.
Vladimir Karaleev also remained faithful to his color scheme: black, white and grey were accompanied by a few shades of blue and some nude tones. Some individual pieces like a box shaped jacket or a mullet skirt in a bright musty yellow build a strong contrast to this.
To break the soft and nude tones, he used different details like attached pockets or thick zippers in deep black and plays with different materials. Airy cotton, linen, silk and chiffon combined with shiny metallic fabrics, created an exciting mix in his outfits.
