Berlin (ots) – With the motto “Express Yourself” Marc Cain showed the new Fall/Winter 2022 collection at the Varieté Wintergarten in Berlin. Showcasing an unusual staging, individual looks, bold colours and unusuall prints, Marc Cain not only presented the theme of diversity, but also sent a clear signal for peace at the end of the Show.
The evening bore an undercurrent of current affairs and the conflict. Marc Cain´s intention was to present the new collections, not to celebrate. The models walked between the rows of tables and showcased looks with influences from the 60s and 90s. From ultra-short miniskirts to elegant satin suits, always with a casual twist. The modern street style looks impressed the audience with a clear colours and expressive prints. The strong combinations of shades paid tribute to the Fashion Shows´ motto “Express yourself” and stood for individuality and self-confidence. The halll was bathed in rosé and red to match the expressive staging.
At the very end of the Show, Marc Cain turned off the lights and played the song “Russians” by Sting. When the lights were switched on again, all 47 models stood united on stage – each displaying open palms with the peace sign painted on. A clear statement for peace and tolerance – against waar and violence.
Marc Cain also used the evening for another fundraising campaign, which will run until next Sunday. Marc Cain will then double the amount and transfer it to Caritas, the official partner of Fashion Week Berlin. The premium label had already donated 200.000 Euro to the children´s rights organisation “Save the Children” before the event.
Marc Cain´s special guest this evening was Hollywood actress Marcia Cross: “The location, staging and decor were so unusual. I love color and was completely blown away by the intensity of the different shades and prints. The final part of the show was extremely touching and quite haunting. I am also so grateful for Marc Cain´s generous donation in support of Ukraine.”
