About the Collection

‘I would like to drink beer high among the Aesir’
After reading lots of myths and fairy tales, I wondered what attracted me to these stories. Besides the fantasy elements, everyday life and humor are key ingredients as well. While designing, I love to play around with these themes.

My menswear collection represents the ultimate balance of fantasy, everyday life and humor. I wanted to catch the feeling I get when reading fairy tales. This resulted in a collection full of experimental elements in classic garments. Surprising materials like tape, cork, felt and plastic beads add to the surrealistic mood of the garments. A bright color palette highlights my playful view on menswear.
