At the last day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin fashion designer and ESMOD graduate Franziska Michael brought back childhood memories during her show at Kaufhaus Jandorf.
As her Spring/Summer 2018 collection kicked off it became clear that popping orange is a thing next season. It found itself on skirts, stockings, tops, as male flared-pants and is worn very well by one famous german TV character: the mouse. The broadcast with the mouse is one of the most successful children’s programs on German television and so the mouse was honored with her portrait as tiny all-over print on a male overall, trousers and shirts. A t-shirt and a soft pink cape showed her in a lager version – twinkling and holding up her middle finger. Maybe a wink to childhood memories, apart from that mouse theme the collection shows a grown-up side as well.
Next to happy colors like orange, yellow and soft pink, the collection included dark brown and blue shades. Pinstripes, denim, flared dungarees, an oversized blazer and wide Marlene Dietrich inspired trousers are made of leather, velvet and satin and reminisce the strong, confident and working woman.
FRANZISKA MICHAEL strongly focused on big flounces, but also her signature style, powerful contrasts and asymmetries, can be found in the new collection and provide a feminine, nonchalant look with a joyful mood.
