One to Watch: Sam Frenzel

You always seem to think you know, but quite frankly, you don’t. One should always treat life as a continuous learning journey. Searching lead me to Sam Frenzel, a Berlin-based Fashion designer who launched his first solo show at Mercedes-Benz Berlin Fashion Week for Fall 2010. He’s been getting a lot of heat for the past couple of years, and his niche for meshing traditional with modern ranks him high in my books. Trends are futuristic for 2010, but there’s a serious`90s reference manifesting in the fashion world. His vision very much reminds me of Christian Lacroix, but with a more accessible tone.

Frenzel made it fun for fall 2010 playing with a candy-coated colour palette. However, I preferred his previous collection. He had a bit of a new wave Donna Karan thing with the architectural cuts and multi-layering. But then again, I guess I’m a bit intense.  What wins me over is that once things are stripped down, he’s got some valuable separates. And he’s a star when he plays with the synched waist concept.
