When high fashion meets experimentation

The first time I stumbled across Blænk was at Paris Fashion Week. Back in September, the German Design Duo, Silke Geib and Nadine Möllekamp, presented their debut-collection in the fashion capital. Four months later, Berlin Fashion Week is raring to go - and Blænk gears itself up for exhibiting its stunning creation.

The label was founded two years ago when Geib ran across Möllekamp. Both, working for Victor& Rolf in Amsterdam, engaged their sympathy for each other which is why they decided to cooperate. By now, Geib works in Berlin while Möllekamp still lives in Amsterdam. Uncommon but it seems to work out.

Nevertheless, it's clear that both of them have a substantiated education: Geib studied at the Paris Esmod School. With her final Menswear collection she even ranked among the finalist of  the "14è Festival International des Arts de la Mode Hyères."   Moreover, she worked for Maison Martin Margiela and J. Lindeberg. Möllekamp, the second half of Blaenk, studied at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts.

Their first collection is coined by romantic, maiden influences which interact with elaborately designed details. Draperies, precious fabrics and feminin cuts consort with unusual embroideries and plastic inserts. My opinion: Très chic Mesdames!
