<>GERMANY WEEK<> PERRET SCHAAD - respect for tradition AND technique along with THE desire to redefine the rules.
PERRET SCHAAD stands for curiosity and the interest in individual definitions of beauty. Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad combine their ideas and love for experimentation in a line focused on quality and eloquence. Their approach is defined by respect for traditional handcraft and technique along with an irrepressible desire to redefine the rules.
The duo’s love for pattern cutting and their passion for draping are fundamental to PERRET SCHAAD’s aesthetics. Their intuitive design process brings together fluidity and movement with the sculptural, spatial. Structures are generated from distinctive color combinations and material layering.
PERRET SCHAAD’s obsession with contrast and harmony results in a coming together of the finest natural fabrics and innovative technical surfaces.
The palette is subtle and surprising; the look discrete yet new.

<>GERMANY WEEK<> Vladimir Karaleev SS18 COLLECTION - a conceptual understanding of clothing as a medium.
Vladimir Karaleev’s work is characterized by intense study of the human body and its connections with clothing through experimental incision and innovative shape. A striking feature of both his women's and men's collections is the subtle yet decisive play with contrast of material. Influenced by contemporary art and architecture, Karaleev’s collections reflect a conceptual understanding of clothing as a medium as well as its functional purpose.
The individual forms of expression are propagated through fashion unobtrusively, without disregarding the balance between material, shape and detail. The garments underline the individuality of a person but he / she remains the focal point.
Vladimir Karaleev, born in 1981 in Sofia, Bulgaria, studied fashion design at the University of Applied Sciences (HTW) in Berlin, Germany. Following his studies, he founded his eponymous label in 2010 and was included within a short time in the official schedule of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin. In 2014 and 2017 he was nominated for the International Woolmark Prize. Vladimir Karaleev's collections are represented in numerous concept stores in Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.

The most important message SADAK wants to communicate is: pride in individuality
The clothing is innovative and unique, while still incorporating distinctive elements from a variety of preceding periods and ethnic cultures.The various inspirations for the collections are essentially what makes them so superior in character. It’s not only the collection as a whole that comes with a motive, it’s the individual works themselves.
Always at the core of his universe (and as essential as the clothes themselves) are attitudes, moods and statements about individuality and independence. Equally important in SADAK’ s approach is the constant quest for innovation. The key elements stay the same: modern proportions, a constant research for fabrics and textures and above all the interplay of pure construction and new shapes with the body and psyche of the contemporary fashion and art.

Minimalistic clarity perfected in a collection of exclusive timepieces: this is what distinguishes the 1919 Collection.
The characteristic apertures at the strap attachment and the interlocking transition to the strap lend the puristic aesthetic of the collection a certain lightness. The stripped-back design of the dial focuses attention on the essentials.
The elegant design is available in two models: the 1919 Datetimer with date window and the 1919 Chronograph. The 1919 Globetimer models have an additional hand showing the time in a second time zone on a 24-hour scale. An intelligent design that excels all over the world.
