FAULT Magazine to attend POP Kultur Festival 2018

As summer slowly draws to a close (not that you would know with the summer we’re currently experiencing), as does festival season, but that does mean an end to all the festivities as we’ve still got one last festival to review this summer and all signs point to it being a great one.

From the 15th-18th of August we’re heading on down to Berlin to experience their Pop kultur festival, which has seemingly brought together an all encompassing line up to ensure that there’s something for everyone this year. YGG and Ms Banks, Neneh Cherry sharing a lineup with Boy Sharsher, Myrkur, Die Nerven isn’t something you see at every festival but the hope is (in our eyes at least) that this bringing together of such a diverse line up of music will also introduce many music fans to a genre they has not yet been introduced to.

It should also be mentioned that the calibre of the musicians is very high this year, we have a keen eye out for Anna von Hau, Drangsaal, Agar Agar, Myrkur and while they’ve only just been put on our radar, the Gaddafi Girls also have us very excited.

FAULT Faves From MBFWB Day 4

Vektor

So-popular-collage

New kids on the Berlin block, Vektor, capture the spirit of the city’s trendy crowd and filter it into their collections. The models came out girl, boy, girl, boy to beat heavy techno music (what else?) wearing outfits as uniformed as their walk. Voluminous neoprene jumpers and bomber jackets in a strictly monochrome black and white were paired with skinny trousers and leggings for men. A leather panel in an inverted triangle shape with the bottom cut off emphasised the broad shoulder, slim leg look on men. For women, long, a-symmetrical wrap coats with contrast belts moved away from the sporty look but still had a quirky edge.

All in all though, the perfect wardrobe to share with your boyfriend or girlfriend.

Irene Luft’s fetish-like evening wear collection for AW15 was titled ‘revenent’, the name for a visible ghost. Ghostly elements included translucent black fabrics covered in lace and netted skirts that floated around the models’ bodies. Heavy, full skirts in contrast to the delicate lace and silk, used leather and neoprene to dramatic effect. Accessories included opera-length leather gloves and black metallic head capes. Wet look hair dropped over the face in thick strands.

Evening glamour for the brave.

Marina Hoermanseder

So-popular-collage

Berlin Fashion Week ended on a high with Marine Hoermanseder’s AW15 show. From the opening look, a postbox red plastic hobble skirt with exaggerated hips and mohair jumper which the model waddled half way down the aisle in before twirling her arms in a balletic fashion and waddling back again, to the standing ovation at the end, this was a true fashion marvel.

The mixture of imaginative, avant-garde designs and wearable, elegant pieces was refreshing to see. Loose, silky culottes and blouses with open backs carried simple leather details to create something unique. The front of a belt on trousers finished at the hip bones and trailed down to trim the pockets and breast pockets were boxy with old fashioned leather buckle closures. Buckles were a common theme, from the leather corsets layered over a cotton dress that buckled up at the back to the jacket that had a buckle fastening rucksack merged into it and the latticed leather pencil skirt with buckle detail on the waist. The leather craftsmanship was impressive. Fur accessories, such as a large Eskimo snood and oversized coat collar added a touch of vintage glamour. Hair and makeup was also old glamour with dainty chignons and finger waved fringes, complementing the porcelain skin and red lipstick. A free-flowing, mac-style dress and loose pyjama trousers hinted to the 1930s.

The contrast between classic and futuristic leathers and plastics didn’t jar, they blended perfectly and displayed the true talent of one of Germany’s most exciting designers.

Dorothee Schumacher

Dorothee Schumacher Berlin Fashion Week

Dorothee Schumacher took her turn at showing what the 1960s trend looks like to her followers. A-line mini skirts were styled with knee high socks and high heeled mules, hair was loose and draped over one kohl-heavy eye and turtle necks worked their dues across leather t-shirts, office-appropriate black knit dresses and textured cocktail dresses.

This was 60s sophistication with a toned down colour scheme of beige, charcoal and vermilion, infused with just a few pops of brights. Prints had an Eastern-Asian feel, depicting flowers and vines of leaves in traditional colour combinations of white, black and red and white, black and pink. A printed full-length dress with long sleeves and a high neck made an impression and epitomised the glamorous side to the decade of rock ‘n’ roll that Dorothee Schumacher has channelled so elegantly for AW15.

Glaw

Glaw Berlin Fashion Week

The Berlin designer duo’s AW15 show had us hot under the collar. Models slinked down the runway in evening dresses slit up to the thigh, a tight leather mini dress was zipped through from top to bottom and metallic trousers were skin tight. Primarily in hot red, dramatic black and attention-grabbing gold, this is a collection to be worn after dark.

Inspired by the mythology and symbolism of the snake, this influence was most obvious in the black sweaters and tight party dresses embellished with snakes writhing across them. The reptilian motif was also in jumpers embellished with large, scale-like sequins and the fur stoles that slinked between the models’ arms.

Glaw had a modern take on eveningwear by mixing formal gowns with ready-to-wear items such as sweater jumpers and bomber jackets. Accessorised with geometric sunglasses and pointed, stiletto ankle boots, this collection does sexy in the coolest way possible.

HERB RITTS EXHIBITION

A worth seeing exhibition dedicated to the legendary photographer Herb Ritts will take place in Berlin.
More than 50 photographs will give a comprehensive insight into the work of Herb Ritts, who passed away in 2002. All of the exhibited photographs were developed during the artist’s lifetime.
In the 1980s and the 1990s, the autodidact worked together with nearly every superstar. Among the exhibited portraits one can find names such as Madonna, Mick Jagger, Dustin Hoffman, David Bowie, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, and Cindy Crawford. Thanks to his unique vision, distinctive portraits as well as very aesthetic nude photographs came into existence. His great sensitivity and his stylistic confidence with regard to the usage of strict forms, creating a monumental sensuality, enabled Herb Ritts to create timeless icons and to influence a whole generation of photographers with his innovative picture language.
