Frank Leder t-shirt
Organic cotton sourced from Imathia in Greece by master craftspeople, processed and woven in Swabia’s Albstadt on over 100-year old looms before being cut and sewn by hand. These t-shirts come with short sleeves in sizes S/M/L/XL, in Frank Leder’s unique and stunning “Baltic Blue”. To finish, the shirts are hand-printed in Berlin with an illustration courtesy of Veronika von Manz. The printing technique used on our textiles is called discharge printing. Rather than printing something onto the fabric, it reveals the fabric’s original colour. The advantage is that you can wash your textiles as often as you want – nothing’s going to start peeling off.
About Frank Leder
If there is one designer who brings German tradition into his work without dabbling in odiously naive notions of “Heimat”, it’s Frank Leder. In terms of aesthetics and production, his collections are firmly indebted to the legacy of German craftsmanship, reimagining guild clothing and traditional folk costumes.The bulk of Frank’s sales happen in Japan and frankly, we think it’s a scandal that there is as yet not one German fashion store selling his stunning attire.
His cosmetics, too, are full of subtle references and Frank’s trademark wit. His fragrances may sound unusual, but are thoroughly joyful – don’t be surprised if even a hand soap named after long begone butcher’s products leaves you wanting more!
