LEAF – function supports design.
As a statement against the throwaway society, LEAF gives their styles an extra value to make the styles more special and unique. The excellent workmanship supports the idea of keeping a style for longer – enjoying their values every day. The aim of LEAF is to let the customer easily achieve little differences in the look – by themselves. They can reverse a style or zip things on and off, wrap, button, unbutton… LEAF cooperates with local resources for production. With their knowhow of excellent workmanship and patternmaking we achieve the best outcome for our customers. www.leaf-fashion.com
NICO SUTOR – WTR
The Berlin based fashion label Nico Sutor was founded in April 2011. The label creates fashion for both men and women as well as matching accessories and jewellery.
The collections consist of androgynous and minimalist jersey basics, which unite a variety of advanced handcrafting, cutting and draping techniques, expressing the essence of the garments and the skill of the workmanship. www.instagram.com/
Kai Gerhardt – Kai Gerhardt is a Berlin based Fashion designer who mostly work with black and white.
The design of his garments is based on his own fabric creation, which gives his collection a very strong and unique touch. His graduate collection “put your lights on” is about the fight between light and darkness – the monster has been hiding under our bed when the night comes down while we have also been carrying them all life long. www.kaigerhardt.com
Atelier Bartavelle – France.
Atelier Bartavelle offers a minimalist wardrobe composed of outer garments and layers. Vests, jackets, perfectos, trench coats and coats are thus available in high quality materials in a wide range of colors that span the seasons. Inspired by the Bartavelle, a partridge native to the south of France, the brand is marked by a relation to the sea; its indigo blue, its sails and its luminosity. It plays with cuts and layering to create a resolutely contemporary look. All of our pieces are made in Europe in Marseille and Porto. www.atelierbartavelle.com
