#REFERENCEFESTIVAL – The GmbH Fall/Winter 2021 collection lends its title “WELT AM DRAHT” (World on a Wire) from Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Sci-fi epic from 1973. Originally created as a series for German television, it suggests that this entire world exists entirely inside another world, perhaps as a computer simulation.
We started by building a men’s collection with silhouettes and techniques that refer to mid-century couture. We wanted to create clothes of dreams, rather than the mundane pragmatism of our every day lives. An escape from the banality of our realities. All the garments suggest a life anywhere, but inside our homes. Whether it means going to the opera or the club, hiking, skiing, horse riding, or cruising. You choose your adventure.
