Ber­lin pro­vided the per­fect back­drop for Marc Cain’s fall/win­ter 2018 col­lec­tion.

PAINT THE TOWN

The brand worked with Ger­man-Peru­vian street artist Nasca Uno, who, along with fel­low artists Moe79, Leifi and Riots1394, trans­formed the venue’s bare grey con­crete pil­lars with graf­fiti art, light in­stal­la­tions and mu­rals.

MIX IT UP

Not to be out­done by the lo­ca­tion, the clothes on the run­way were a ri­otous dis­play of bright or­ange, fuch­sia and elec­tric blue. And since puffer jack­ets know no dress code, they were wrapped around waists or paired with se­quined minis and striped knee socks. Hood­ies and chunky-knit sweaters lent blaz­ers and sweep­ing midi-coats a laid­back feel. A sharp tuxedo dress with sparkly lapels was a par­tic­u­lar stand­out.

MODEL BE­HAV­IOUR

At the show re­hearsal, a run­way coach urged the typ­i­cally stone­faced mod­els to smile and dance down the run­way. Dur­ing the fi­nale, set to Su Kramer’s “You’ve Got the Power,” the mood was down­right ebul­lient.

TO THE CLUB

The af­ter­party was held be­hind the run­way space, where guests sipped cham­pagne and hit the sunken dance floor.

DISCO DAYS

Cre­ative direc­tor Karin Veit com­bined Stu­dio 54 glam­our with Ber­lin’s leg­endary un­der­ground club culture for a show that was equal parts rave and run­way spec­ta­cle. Show­go­ers were led down a stair­case to a neon- and black-lit tun­nel and had to show their in­vites—glow-stick bracelets—to be let into the in­con­spic­u­ous venue.
