BERLIN + BYBORRE (MAY '17)
When our friends from Halal invited us to join them on their project Wir Sind Die Holländer with Sizzer Amsterdam, we of course said Yes! BYBORRE moves its atelier for an extended weekend to the Inselstrasse in Berlin.
Opening + Afterparty: May 18, 17.00 | Store open: May 18-21, 11.00 - 20.00 | Inselstrasse 13, Berlin
To work, connect, show our signature knits and sell what is current from our open atelier in Berlin Mitte. Selected items from our current collection and garments created from archival textiles will be available to purchase during the event.
You can build your own sweater with us by hand picking your favourite BYBORRE (sample) textile of past years.
BYBORRE is an Amsterdam based textile innovation studio working on the frontiers of aesthetics, functionality, technology and material research. Over the past six years they have worked with clients such as Nike, Wings & Horns, Louis Vuitton, TREND UNION, TheNorthFace, Joris Laarman Lab, Daniel Arsham and many others.
Characteristic to the label are the self-developed innovative knitting techniques that bring the digital and tactile worlds together. By starting from the yarns BYBORRE discovers new possibilities. The archetypical clothing pieces convey the story about material and machine, which introduces a new approach towards fashion where the process and product are equally important.
