Thank God It's Friday the 13th

On July 16, a night of art, music and fashion called Into the Woods, held at the stunning Kronprinzenpalais (Crown Prince Palace), kicked off Berlin Fashion Week. And it was the underground event of this season, a place for fashion that functions differently. The idea came from the art-meets-fashion platform Friday the 13th, who wanted to create a serene and thoughtful place for the exchange of ideas. They assembled a mix of sculpture, installations, photography and music from international artists that included Tal R, Jan Scharrelmann, Patricia Urquiola for Rosenthal and Julieta Aranda, whose explosions of sand within the confines of a plexiglas box was particularly amazing. A sound backdrop by musician Mathias Modica of Gomma Records accompanied the display, while the lawns of the Kronprinzenpalais were the setting for Jan Scharrelmannʼs vast sculptures and Markus Keibelʼs broken glass installation. Live acts included Richard Clouston, Nathan Gregory, Wilkins and Fetish, who played till the wee hours.
