Numéro Berlin’s weekly collection of the most exciting news about fashion, music, and simply everything that is on our radar. And here is why it should be on yours as well!

MARC O’POLO invites you to THE DINNER, a holiday collection from fall/winter 2022. We imagine it’s Christmas and friends are getting together for a festive dinner, who haven’t seen each other in a long time. There is talk, laughter and small gifts are exchanged. Glasses are clinking, stories are told, and at a late hour there is dancing. The collection brings the new, enthusiastic festive mood and remains surprisingly casual. It’s decorated with exclusive jewelry in cooperation with designer Saskia Diez. For women it’s relaxed glamour. Flowing dresses, blouses with lace-up detail and crop tops made of silky satin, as well as wide-leg pants and skirts and a fine blouson in high-quality bringing festive feminity. The collection for men is modern and minimalistic. The highlight for men: a total look with a shirt in relaxed fit, trousers in jogg and a blazer – all in responsible Wool. A sweater with a patchwork knit structure and sustainable design approach, developed from leftover yarns are an eye-catching piece.

”I had this roughed up conservative style queued up, having a child in mind, looking up to the authority, feeling small…” – Cristopher Nying, Creative Director Our Legacy.

OUR LEGACY FALL 2022 is about adolescently observing authority. The story is playing with casual products, a classic wardrobe for men and women, a twisted view breaking down formal wear. Imagining a child’s idea of the uniform, of its teacher, of a banker, a parent going to dinner, an office worker commuting. The collection was captured by berlin based photographer Thomas Hauser.

The men’s line winter 2022/2023 explores DIOR’S heritage, reinterpreting it through the eye of modernity. The collections goes beyond the boundaries of time and builds a bridge between past and present. The creations generated by this dialogue are revealed in this poetic collection, which celebrates the spirit of Paris and the love of French fashion. The images captured by Rafael Pavarotti are a dreamlike setting, echoing time the show’s set. An image, romantic and dreamy at once, silhouettes combining the formal with the informal. The iconic bar jacket is reinvented and transformed into a long coat or black leather version, celebrating the timeless savior-faire of the house’s ateliers. Bags and accessories also bring a special connection between today and tomorrow. The saddle is adorned with embroidery, or transformed into a holder. The new DIOR Corolle Tote Bag can be also seen as a useful piece and the Men’s beret in several versions is a final surprise with an extra touch of elegance.

Rapper Kelvyn Colt is negotiated as “the future of German hip hop” and inspires a new generation. He’s is committed to various CSR issues, including climate-conscious performances during his tours, and equality in the music industry. Icons are the branding of CARTIER – so is Kelvyn Colt. As one of the few Maisons with the special ability to create jewelry and watching collections becoming legends.
The different designs are based on four principles: Purity, precision, perfection of proportions and noble details.

GANT X WRANGLER is bringing back modern Cowgirl and Cowboy fashion. Both brands were founded in the 1940s, and both helped define the beginning of American Sportswear. For the Fall/Winter 22 collection, these two worlds come together to celebrate the signature classics of American style. In 1950s America, WRANGLER and GANT were instrumental in the development of casual Americana design. While Wrangler embodied the Western lifestyle with products like Western jeans, jackets and shirts, GANT shaped the preppy style with its clean button-down shirts. The stories may be different – Wrangler dressed rodeo stars and ranch hands, while GANT defined the Ivy League look – but both have a cultural impact. The CAPSULE COLLECTION includes men’s and women’s denim pants, apparel and accessories, mixing the preppy style of America’s East Coast with Western denim. The pieces include bootcut jeans with college patches, a jacket with Western embroidery and a faux fur-lined denim jacket inspired by rock legends of the 1960s and 1970s. The DNA of both brands runs through every piece of this collaboration.

This nine-piece collection that sees SMALL TALK STUDIO puts a personal touch to CARHARTT WIP’s traditional workwear, being created exclusively for BROWNS FASHION. Finding inspiration in nostalgia, founder of SMALL TALK STUDIO, Nicholas Williams references vintage garden magazines, plant seed packets, grocery store goods and outdoor guidebooks, spending hours hand-embroidering garments with unique, colorful floral graphics and animal illustrations that have become his signature. Key pieces include a denim workwear three-piece coord and everyday jerseys. On to accessories, find beanie hats and totes, all reinterpreted with colorful hand drawn illustrations that capture the essence of summertime Americana. With this exclusive collection, Williams fills Carhartt WIP’s bestsellers, distinctive for their premium fabrics, rugged construction and comfortable fit, with an unexpected combination of graphics that gives each piece a colorful character.

Who are we? Who do we want to be? What are our desires? The EXQUISITE GUCCI CAMPAIGN tells an adventures story and brings the collection to life through fictional cinematic lenses. For Creative Director Alessandro Michele clothes are connected to human life and self realization. The collection is imagined as films able to convey a cinematography of the present: a result of stories, eclectic and dissonant, that can help the human and its metamorphic ability. The campaign is a manipulation of Kubrick’s images in a completely new framework. Add to that the inspiration and empathy that is only possible through the fictional lenses of the cinema. The EXQUISITE campaign is a tribute to cinema and to Stanley Kubrick, who inspired Creative Director Alessandro Michele. In an act of love, he decided to re-explore Kubrick’s films and bring this incendiary approach to the fore. With EXQUISITE Alessandro continue his attempt to mix the high and the low, this time coherently and synergistic with the grammar of the great director. The big questions about the meaning of life become pop images. Staying true to his creative practice, Alessandro took these films, reshaped them and populated them with his clothes, trying to create short-cuts. The dress designed by Laura Whitcomb, which Madonna wore in the New York spotlight in the nineties, fits into the gothic scenes of The Shining . The enigmatic darkness of the enigmatic ritual of Eyes Wide Shut embraces a Venus in fur adorned with sensual bourgeois beads. Finally, dangles the most dreamlike evening dress with soft tulle ruffles into the aseptic and dystopian space of Discovery One in 2001: A Space Odyssey. This situationist play mixes historical plans, references, experiences. The past explodes into the present.
