BERENIK presented their Spring/Summer 17 collection Sunday, September 11th, 2016 at the old Pearl River Mart building in the heart of Soho. Pulling inspiration from a diverse range of mediums, her creative spirit was combined with the digital cloudscape print designed by artist Jack Hardwicke. A fusion of timeless summer renaissance and fragility was present within the garments in this season’s collection.
BERENIK is known for their consistent free-flowing silhouettes, a feminine form preserved this season in a palette of sand grey, night navy, dusty rose and black. This neutral palette offers a curation of pieces that allows customer’s to create a wardrobe that doesn’t rely on seasonal trends, rather a timeless curation of pieces for the ultimate wardrobe.
There was an air of effortless ease and an essence of supreme comfort. Veronika’s deep personal connection with the visual arts is evident is all her designs and this season for BERENIK was no exception.
Veronika styled her own runway with a strong and deliberate attitude that appeared both diverse and unique. Gilleon Smith’s casting was on brand appropriate and melded seamlessly with the spirit of the show. Key makeup artist Sandra Becker, for NuEvolution Cosmetics, used bright and vibrant lilac, pink and leaf green to accentuate the eyes, keeping the skin glowing and fresh. Laurent Dufourg, head hair stylist made the hair big and bold, using products provided by Prive.
