Michael Michalsky: “Many trends are quickly disappearing”
Under the motto “Brothers and Sisters” Michalsky called with his show for more cooperation instead of against each other, also politically. He criticized about the America First policy of US President Donald Trump. His ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, was in the front row. The diplomat took the criticism motionless.
On the catwalk he got to see overalls with epaulets and leggings and an Indian breeches (Jodhpur) – after jogging pants and sneakers another sporting goods that could become everyday wear, as Michalsky says. “In riding pants for a party – I can imagine that.” The trends for spring and summer 2020 will be presented in Berlin . Internet and social media have made fashion more short-lived, Michalsky says. There used to be one or two trends that would have lasted for a while. “Today there are a few hundred trends in parallel and many of them are burning up relatively quickly.”
Only one trend does not go away: sneakers. The sneakers have long been on the catwalks and in the shops. “This trend will never go away,” predicts Michael Michalsky. “Maybe we’ll have a chancellor in sneakers soon – you never know.” Also Guido Maria Kretschmer knows: “The time is sneaker-ripe, people want fast, they want comfortable.”
