Berlin Fashion Week Fall 2012- Patrick Mohr

Designer Patrick Mohr describes his design aesthetic as "sophisticated streetwear" and that is exactly what he delivered for his Fall/Winter 2012 collection presented during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. In the past, Mohr's more avant-garde styling choices, such as sending female models with bald caps and beards down the runway, have distracted from the elegant simplicity of his minimal designs. In his Fall/Winter 2012 show it was the clothes that took center stage with the accessories pulling together looks made up of very wearable pieces.

The opening look set the tone for the show, a mix of vintage, street and glam. It was also a nod to Berlin style: the camel cape edged with leather piping over a belted knit dress topped with a statement necklace and a handbag in the crook of the models' arm, was a look put together of items, most notably the cape, that are popular with the city's most stylish inhabitants. Other elements of Berlin style in the collection included chunky knitwear, over-sized scarves, hoodies, utilitarian jackets, and beards (reserved for male models this time), but all were done in a grown-up way, more hip young professional than starving artist, including the beards, which were groomed and one even topped with a handlebar moustache, รก la Patrick Mohr himself.
