Kai Dunkel, a German menswear brand founded in 2015 and distinguishes itself through interdisciplinary work. Their goal is to combine the past with the future in order to create pieces with specific characteristics, gained through the implementation of scientific approaches, such as processing the fabrics with a variety of different applications.
Collection KRONOS for SS 2017 visualizes the individual’s dismissal from reality and its transformation in a new world.
"The collection distinguishes itself through its unique and contrasting material character. Hard, demolished and rigid fabrics, as well as the rough metal buckles and gas mask lenses, symbolise the individual’s liberation from human reality and lend the collection a mechanical character. In contrast; soft, flowing and transparent fabrics accentuate the human vulnerability and fragility. Layers and elongated lapels encase the body and function as protection against upcoming and uncertain dimensions.
The transformation is complete."
