About Collection 03 Designed by Konstantin Grcic
Our third men’s and women’s collection is designed in collaboration with the acclaimed industrial designer Konstantin Grcic. The collection amends our signature performance apparel with technical yet tailored ready-to-wear for everyday life. The silhouettes focus on an understated, timeless and functional approach to design.
When conceiving Collection 03, Konstantin Grcic applied the processes behind industrial design to clothing, creating pieces, which are simplified to their fundamental proportions. The pieces are lightweight, breathable and comfortable and feature latest materials and manufacturing techniques.
Collection 03 is also our most sustainable yet. 96% of the collection`s textiles are recycled, purely natural, biodegradable or bio-based. As part of our non-seasonal mantra – which encourages slow consumption and timeless design – all of our collections are meant to be combined and layered with each other, and remain in our offering for a continuous period of time.
