Kristin Hensel

Not extravagance and complaisance but reduction and clarity are characteristic for Berlin-based fashion label Kristin Hensel, which was founded in 2005. Formal constructions and textile surfaces - self-created textile patterns by digital printing - are used in an abstract, conceptual sense. All details underline form and content with a touch of irony but without becoming decoration. The use of high quality materials accentuate the sophisticated aesthetics of design. Minimalist of colours, shapes and design, reduced on the essential. It's about style und consequence, about objectification and a measure of distance.
