ANNTIAN - made by small regional manufacturers, focussing on solid, sustainable quality in the making, selection and developing of fabrics, with an effort of using ecological materials and fibres whenever possible. A position to counter fast fashion and fast life - the loss of Individuality, Personality, Morality, Plurality and personal time.
ANNTIAN clothing is meant to pleasure one's life for many many years - handing out the impuls and the motivation to explore the spectrum of Life.
The Collections designed by ANNTIAN always tell a story revealing a very own little world within. It’s the intention to work on a certain theme - the heart of the collections - that covers clothing, accessories and interior in an intensive way. The shown fictions due to the conceptual and harmonic collections are meant to sensitize, to force on a depth look upon things.
All fabrics are designed by ANNTIAN- Graphics are often handpainted or handprinted, which makes the piece unique and abnormal. Of great importance for ANNTIAN is the closeness to the product, and it‘s regional manufacturers, so as the increasing usage of ecological fabrics and materials. The clothes are full of hidden details, conceptual authorised, differing and individual.
Characteristics and elements of the clothes:
Reduced, Clear, Complexity In Detail, Importance of Quality, Haptics and Individuality of each Product. Conceptual working runs throughout the range, so as several working techniques that get visible in different ways. Just like the printingprocess of the clothes which is actually a paperprinting-technique.
All in all the collections are quiet and harmonic - in detail complex and intensive.
The Designers Anne Hilken & Christian Kurt started the label in Berlin 2006 with their first collection SS07 ‚a stripes back‘. Since then, presentations of their collections are shown in private locations twice a year during Paris and Tokyo fashionweeks.
In 2015 they opened the ANNTIAN Land studio 1 hour from Berlin.
