Loving the experimental, factory inspired display and the multi-functional convertible garments.

The colour use is immense, especially the bold, solid primary colour’s against the neutral tones of sand & grey

The Hungarian born, Berlin based designer is influenced by geometric structures and keeps a close connection to the art scene.

His AW13/14 collection explores the combination of contrasting fabrics with an androgynous and modern aesthetic.
