HYPNOSIS-berlin, consists of certified fashion designers Niklas Kauffeld and Matthis Jahn. Since early 2008 they have presented their biannual collections for women’s apparel.
The distinctive style of HYPNOSIS-berlin has found many admirers world-wide on account of exceptional design and wear-ability seen in every collection. Jersey materials are thoughtfully draped and transformed into modern and wearable looks and often described as “jersey couture".
Sustainability in design an collections is becoming increasingly important in today´s world. While HYPNOSIS-berlin´s production is located in Germany, to guarentee fair working conditions, it is of prime importance to the brand to make all tmes of organic cotton.
The individual collections are a fusion of sophisticated design with an emphasis on a comfortable fit.
HYPNOSIS-berlin works substantially with black and grey yet is sure to use a few striking trend colors every season to offset the neutral base.
Prints are avoided with a focus on solid colors and little structure in the silhouettes contributing to an interesting contrast between wearer and environment.
Wear-ability and the avant-garde come together in the collections to form a symbiotic relationship. Many pieces in the collections have multifunctional aspects rounding out the entire look of the collections.
With a heavy understanding in craftsmanship, pattern pieces are created to give unexpected silhouettes that are flattering on a wide range of body sizes. Details create a harmonious yet highly functioning affect.
Playing with volume has become a typical stylistic means of HYPNOSIS-berlin. In addition to convenience and wear-ability of the form, the game of volume also allows for skillfully hidden problem areas.
HYPNOSIS-berlin works each season with overlapping themes of inspiration. The main focus of each collection, however, is a specific pattern development process involving core geometric pattern construction. Within this unique process emerges asymmetries, displaced elements and pleasantly unexpected silhouettes upon wear.
