LONDON, United Kingdom — Rory Parnell Mooney's presentation at Fashion East was an ode to Berlin, a city where creativity thrives on a shoestring, much like his own. The red, white and black colour palette harked back to a time when Berlin wasn't quite so free and easy, the languid silhouettes and volumes — and the tableau vivant  — went back even further, to decadent Weimar. The obfuscatory footnotes that accompanied the clothes underlined the fashion student-y vibe. No clarification too obtuse for this young man.
