Fassbender is going to Ibiza

Like many others, Christina Fassbender, her brother Sebastian Steinhoff and the creative director Matthias Louwen seem to be yearning for a holiday with sun, sea and sand right now. The trio behind the Hamburg label Fassbender showed a collection inspired by the Spanish island of Ibiza.

The blues of the Mediterranean meet the sand and stone landscape of the island in the Balearic Islands. The color palette is complemented by floral prints that bring the collection to bloom. The design of the SS22 collection is as versatile as the Ibiza landscape. Wavy and light fabrics are combined with workwear pieces made of sturdy fabrics. Elements such as sailor collars provide the maritime appearance. ## Platte.Berlin opened with Voguing-Show At the pop-up event of the Platte.Berlin, Berlin shows itself from a completely different side. At the fashion show in the courtyard – surrounded by gray concrete walls – the capital’s new fashion hotspot presents labels such as lingerie brand Dstm, Berlin streetwear brand Damur and sustainable accessories label Perlensau.
