The Berlin based and award winning fashion label Steinrohner presented their spring/summer 2018 collection on the third day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin and proved that nature is still their greatest source of inspiration.
For their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection „Symbiosis“, Inna Stein and Caroline Rohner turned the structure of lichens into their idea of fashion – however the new collection is visibly inspired by the colours and the floral playfulness of the Tiger Lily. „Edition Flora“ is all about the fragile but powerful expression of flowers and the feeling of a beautiful spring- or summer day, on which bees are flying from flower to flower, collecting pollen.
The models crossed the catwalk in knee-length dresses, raincoat-like jackets and easygoing shorts. Historic lithographs of flowers transformed into floral prints, were found on transparent tops, short skirts, flared trousers and on a long-sleeved jumpsuit. STEINROHNER wraps the female silhouette in crêpes de chine, linen, silk, organza, cotton and plastic transparency.
Besides the floral styles, the collection offers a variety of plain pieces in bright yellow, gently creme, a few light blue shades but also black, white and silver. Made from silver threaded jersey, pieces like an overall or a wrapped dress fit perfectly to the mainly metallic shoes, which were combined to bright yellow and creme colored stockings.
Highlight was the show-closing dress: An airy, fairy and all-out transparent dream dress in white, decorated with a lot of tiny blossom like fabric pieces, which perfectly provided the tender feeling of „bee-ing“ on a field full of flowers.
