Earlier this month, the who’s who of Berlin society, and a few international faces all gathered for the presentation of the Marc Cain FW19 Collection. The theme of the evening? Meet you at the train station. What Marc Cain was presenting here was a collection that was made for the street. It is a collection that is designed for the woman on the move. Whether she is on the move for business, leisure or exploration these pieces offer style, comfort and flexibility.
Guests all gathered at an industrial space where an abstract train-station was recreated. The models one by one strutted out from the train onto the runway. Other than the train decor such as station clocks, lanterns and even luggage stacks were dotted around the venue.
The staging around the station reflects the different influences of Marc Cain Collections and Sports perfectly. The subject of knitting plays an elementary role because it is one of the core topics and part of the Marc Cain DNA.Katja Konradi, Managing Director of Design & Brand
The Marc Cain FW19 Collection
The collection predominantly consists of black and white base colours with accent colours such as rusty red added for contrast. It is clear that the main trend of the Marc Cain FW19 Collection is contrast. Be it through stark fluorescent neon tones matched with neutral winter colours or the hard contrast of black against white. Textures also played a big role in the collection. Warm and slick materials were used which creates looks that range from comfy to uber-slick. This was used in everything from Marc Cain dresses to jackets. Knitwear also formed a large part of the Marc Cain FW19 Collection emphasising once again the trend of layering (in both style and trends). Another noticeable theme throughout the collection is the use of animal print that is once again popping up in various collections.
The event was very well attended and saw Sam Goldberg, Eveline Hall and Lorena Rae take to the runway. The front row saw US actress Sarah Rafferty, Yvonne Catterfeld, Joy Denalane, Caro Daur and Leonie Hanne take in the show to name only a few. Other notable attendees include Alec Voelkel, Alexandra Lapp, Anastasia Zampounidis, Annika Lau, Bettina Zimmermann, Caro Daur, Frauke Ludowig, Frederick Lau, Hannah Herzsprung, Helmut Schlotterer, Jennifer Vollmer, Johanna Voelkel, Joy Denalane, Kathrin
