Architecture and fashion design graduate Jennifer Brachmann combines her knowledge in her collections since establishing the German label BRACHMANN in 2012. The pieces are known for a mix of timeless architectural shapes and dynamic, modern designs.
The Spring/Summer 2015 collection seen at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week shows once again the designer’s background. Walter Gropius served as an inspiration and the pieces are influenced by the Bauhaus movement during the 1920s. However, bridges to fashion history are built at the same time by taking traditional menswear as an example and turning garments like cutaways, vests and shirts into new modern classics.
BRACHMANN uses airy high quality textures like linen and light wool to create wide pleat-front trousers, classical trenchcoats, loose yet elegant shirts and perfectly fitting jackets. Muted colours just as brown, anthracite and dark blue dominate the collection making it timeless and keeping it simple. Despite the influence of accurate old-fashioned designs the BRACHMANN collection boasts avantgardistic, innovative fashion, sticking to it’s typical postclassical style.
