It's almost a tradition that Guido Maria Kretschmer kicks off at Berlin Fashion Week. The well known designer, who also works as host of the German TV-show called "Shopping Queen" always manages to have the highest density of German celebrities in his front row. Beside a lot of German TV-Stars we had a look on his beautiful new collection. For the second time Kretschmer teamed up with the german fashion retailer "Otto" and presented with "Lineless Light" a collection which was about current summer looks and the upcoming fall/winter season for man and women. Somehow unusual, but pretty nice though! The collection was a fine and wearable mixture of glamourous long dresses for women and smart velvet suits for men. Kretschmer, who loves to design glitter gowns, combined some transparent pieces like fishnet-tights with flower applications to warm winter coats. He put flounces on sleeves of tops and pullovers, flower prints on jackets and skirts and assimilated a few plaid pattern. Highlight was a grey top, which was hold by a small shiny jewlery-string at the back Colorful shades like mustard-yellow and intense purple went along with black, white and grey. "The colors are inspired by my travels", the designer explained afterwards. "First I had a wonderful trip to Morocco. Then I went to Marrakech and was lucky enough to visit the Yves Saint Laurent house, which impressed me a lot. Right after that I traveled to Scandinavia, which of course was a great contrast." The color-mixture of his Arabic and Scandinavian impressions reflect very well in his new designs. Lineless Light is an airy and easy-going collection, including casual leisure looks and combing a lot of recurring fashion trends. Well done!
