Anzeige/ Ad: The designer-duo from the Netherlands Rushemy Botter and Lisi Hereburgh presented their Spring/Summer 2019 collection „Al Fombra“ and highlights from their „Fish and Fight“ collection at Berlin Fashion Week. Today’s blogpost will concentrate on the new collection and my outfit I wore to see the show.
Mercedes- Benz and the Hyères Festival
In April the fashion scene came together for the „33rd International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories in Hyères“. For the last nine years Mercedes-Benz has been supporting upcoming designers with the brand’s International Designer Program and has been partnering with the international festival in Hyères. Hyères Festival is one of the most renowned fashion festivals and fashion contests for young designers worldwide. As in previous years, Mercedes-Benz has invited the winner of the festival to show his/her collection at MBFW in Berlin. This year’s winner is the dutch duo Rushmy Botter and Lisi Hereburgh.
Botter Show MBFW
The Botter Show opened this year’s Fashion Week in Berlin with its colorful looks. What might seem a bit crazy at first glance is in fact a political statement. Their collection pays tribute to their Caribbean heritage and is inspired by fishermen who set sail in the morning. They used plastic dolphins as headgear and plastic fishnets in their collection as a symbol for the pollution of our oceans. The cuts are oversized and boxy, striking prints adorn T-shirts. Short pants meet flared jackets and create an interesting and new silhouette. Jackets look like deconstructed pants, floral prints meet classic check. The collection is colorful, loud and deliberately humorous.

My look in detail
The weather couldn’t have been any better during fashion week in Berlin. Blue sky, sunshine and hot temperatures all day. As you guys know, I love shopping at Stylebop and I was super happy I finally teamed up for fashion week with them again. The blue Theory dress is one of my absolute favorites for summer. It is effortlessly chick with an urban and modern edge. I’m totally in love with the glossy blue satin. It has the perfect length to layer under a casual shirt or jacket.
I love clashing styles and therefore decided to pair the elegant dress with a sporty T-Shirt. Do you guys like the combination of the strong red and light blue as much as I do?
I’m obsessed with the cool retro look of the Louis Vuitton „New Wave“ bag. It is such a cool statement piece. I completed my outfit with a pair of strappy Louis Vuitton heels. I love how the heels pick up the color of the skirt and create a harmonious look.
