Thinking of English roses amid frigid temperatures in Berlin Fashion Week

Roses may not be the first thing you think of in the middle of Winter, but for one designer at Berlin Fashion Week, they are the central theme of her collection, even as temperatures in the German capital drop to minus 10 degrees Celsius outside. 

Serbian-born designer Sasa Ko'vacevic presented his menswear collection with the slogan "pride in individuality".

He said he was motivated by the migrant crisis which has gripped Europe over the past year.

"I've mixed sort of like this traditional clothing that I said already before with camouflage and also a black sort of a colour that kind of reflects a lot of kids from nowadays also, so I was trying to reflect a little bit also on the refugee, which was from the last year somehow and still going on," said Sasa Ko'vacevic, fashion designer.

"I was trying to kind of like make a statement about this like procession of people who are passing through the different countries and having different experiences, some really good, some very bad, you know. And also what is their outcome there where they go to, you know, because you are still a foreigner and a refugee also," Ko'vacevic continued.

His collection features a muted khaki and brown palette, channelling traditional ethnic patterns and beading as well as military-style camouflage.

Meanwhile, Austrian designer Lena Hoschek is thinking of England for her lighter, pastoral theme.

"The collection is inspired by the British this time: that is, we have incorporated a lot of tweed, a lot of tailoring. There's a lot more more skirt-suits.As they say, in Austria you say 'costumes'. It's actually a blazer and skirt in Germany. Coats too, lots of motifs from woodlands and meadows and hunting areas," said Lena Hoschek, fashion designer.

"We have prints with foxes and pheasants and also with squirrels. I have let myself be very inspired by nature. Of course, rose gardens were also a big theme, when you think of England, you naturally think of 'rose breeder' David Austin or Highgrove, the beautiful gardens, and yes, flower prints, because I love them, in abundance," Hoschek continued.

Models hit the catwalk in Hochek's riotous floral and lace creations to the music of iconic British bands, including The Kinks and Oasis.

Shows are set to continue until Friday for those willing to brave Berlin's cold snap!
