Men's Fashion from the Sociaalkaufhaus
Inspired by a saying of artist Louise Bourgeois, 'I Do. I Undo. I Redo', the young designer collective Steinbeisser experimented with discarded clothing in order to boost its untapped potential. Their 'reconstructed' fashion is based on garments by designers like Ralph Lauren, Ermenegildo Zegna, and clothes makers like Lanificio del Casentino and C&A.They chose clothes from 100% Virgin wool, or wol blends containing silk or cashmere.The result is a unique edition of men’s fashion with personality.
During the Easter Weekend the Steinbeisser collection will be shown in a performance by actor Johannes Frick, combined with contemporary jewellery by Adam Grinovich.
