Marcell Von Berlin – AW21 – NYFW – text by Ivo Barraza Castaneda.

The world has changed, maybe forever; and as new designer collections are revealed around the globe, so it is a new spirit of optimism, the need to fulfill creativity, new forms of communication arise, after all humans didn’t become less humans and communicating to one and another remains at the core of our needs. Fashion is starting to react, you can see it reflected on the show noted of Marcell Von Berlin, who speaks about a new normal, a search for optimism and opportunity.

The collection takes a classic approach to color and materials reinterpretations, and definitely the pieces that stay within these realms are the most attractive, you can imagine a Rihanna re-vindicating to fashion by wearing one of these highly saturated palette tailored suits. The cut-off knitwear is also a highlight of the collection and the way the looks are presented reflects the time spent by the designer in LA during the past few months, there is a desert-LA-Mexican-normcore vibe to the way the presentation was styled. An interesting young name to pay attention to!

Hello, my name is Ivo. My three favorite things in life are: Thinking deeply about visual creation. I like having long discussions of ideas that might reinvent the course of history. And finally, spending time with the people I love. Since I was a child, I was always involved in some activity around plastic arts, music and literature. That’s how I learned to sew by hand at the age of five, which later led me to focus on my main professional media: Fashion Design.
