DOUBLE FEATURE: While any number of designers have taken their shows off the runway and on to the silver screen during fashion week, Michael Michalsky plans to make the most of both in Berlin next January.

The city’s resident fashion showman talked Disney into staging the German premiere of its winter 3D blockbuster, “Tron: Legacy,” directly after his fall/winter men’s and women’s show at the Tempodrom Jan. 21. The film lands in cinemas six days later.

“Urban Nomads,” the theme of Michalsky’s fall/winter collection, “fits perfectly to the film. And 'Tron' is cult,” the designer said.

The film stars Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde, with French electronic duo Daft Punk supplying the soundtrack.
