Needless to say that Berlin Mitte is the hotspot of the creative and fashionable community of Germany‘s capital.
In January 2011 EDGED started as a showroom and pop-up store in Torstraße. After the huge
success in the past, also this season EDGED Showroom has selected a range of designers
to present them to buyers, press and a fashion interested crowd. With Panatom Gallery,
EGDED found a perfect host for this years showroom. The gallery is an independent exhibtion
space dedicted to a dialogue between free artistic working methods and applied design. Here,
avantgarde design, art and music will merge into an assemblage of creative exchange via fashion.
Even though we are living in times of an overhelming flow of information, industries and politics
are coined by delusion and disguise. EDGED tries to create awareness of this topic with an
installation that picks up the concept of optical illusion. A series of events curated by the pop and
subculture blog wolf auf tausend plateaus will broaden the discussion.
Well-known for its innovative concepts, European unisex brand, Ksenia Schnaider recoursed to new digital technology once again for Autumn/Winter 2013;
this time with a brand new interactive webzine, dedicated to Ksenia Schnaider’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, “Bodywarmer”.

Ksenia Schnaider Autumn/Winter 2013
For Autumn/Winter 2013 European unisex brand Ksenia Schnaider present “Bodywarmer”, a collection inspired by the classic bodywarmer, a quilted garment which was incredibly popular in the Soviet Union due to its affordability, utility and versatility.
Ksenia has taken inspiration from the iconic garment and carried it through the entire collection, quilting dresses, skirts, jackets, coats and the backs of t-shirts, mixing her fanned panelling technique with a unique approach to quilting. Despite the affordability of the bodywarmer during its boom in the Soviet Union, Ksenia has, as with all of her work given classic silhouettes and traditional techniques a luxurious twist with her continued use of leather, velvet and silk throughout the collection. Dresses, coats and t-shirts are soft to touch, and the iconic bodywarmer is coated in leather, enhancing its quilted qualities with deep, almost segmented detail, inevitably placing it at the heart of the collection.

THE NEW KSENIA SCHNAIDER SPRING/SUMMER 2013 COLLECTION ‘CAMOUFLAGE’
For Spring/Summer 2013 Ksenia Schnaider, a European luxury unisex brand that was founded in 2011 by Ukrainian fashion designer Ksenia Marchenko and Russian graphic designer Anton Schnaider, has presented ‘Camouflage’ to the world; a collection that is bombarded with an array of handmade garments for both men and women. Simple but traditional dresses, shirts, trousers, coats, jackets, tops and suits have been adorned with a unique camouflage pattern that has been created to not only hide an individual but also to have the ability to attract the attention of the masses.
Creating durable but stylish items for the contemporary man and woman is what Ksenia Schnaider does best, and has been a continuous aspect throughout all of their collections since the duos debut collection, ‘Hermit’, back in 2011. Rather than being inspired by particular topics, Ksenia Schnaider takes a unique approach to design and is inspired by the clothing itself, its utility, history and codes.
The ability to create clothes that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical is a key aspect of the duos design process and is why so many have fallen for the works of Ksenia Schnaider.
A masked philosophy is what makes the Ksenia Schnaider brand so interesting and a Spring/Summer 2013 collection dominated by unique prints and careful shapes with a hint of fun is almost certainly going to ensure the duo yet another successful season.
Ksenia Schnaider’s f/w 2012 collection is a dedication to the working class.
The collection casts a romantic view of the common blue collar worker existing in banks, gas stations, dining rooms and hospitals as they drift from one day to another, silently making lives for us easier and more fluid.
The key pieces of the collection like white shirts, denim suits, overalls with patch pockets and soft jersey apnts are work-a-day pieces that are a common sight, yet overlooked – an element the collection wants to bring to the fore.
For f/w 12-13 fashion show, an elevator was chosen as a symbol of work, labour, jobs, careers and aspirations – themes that are common yet hushed in our world.
