ABOUT ESTHER PERBANDT
This year marks the 15th anniversary of Berlin-based label “esther perbandt“. Founder and namesake Esther Perbandt was born and bred in Berlin, toughened up in Moscow and polished in Paris. Not only is she a designer but also a visionary, performer and master of ceremonies. Esther Perbandt sees her fashion as an act of (post)feminism irrespective of gender: personality, autonomy and individuality are at the centre of her style. The androgynous silhouette is deconstructed and reframed with classical menswear details.
Interdisciplinarity is at the heart of Esther Perbandt’s work, as seen in countless cooperations on film, music and theatre projects, e.g. with Rammstein and their lead singer Till Lindemann, photographer Sven Marquardt, composer Sven Helbig, directors Nicholas Mockridge and Zoran Bihac as well as choreographer Sasha Waltz and conductor Theodor Currentzis. Dissolving boundaries and fostering connection through creation is the designer’s constant ambition and driving force.
