The Berlin fashion world was met with sad news this morning when it was announced via Vogue.de that our city’s beloved design duo Achtland is set to depart for London starting this spring. Certainly one of the brightest talents to emerge from Berlin in recent years, the label brought a polished elegance into a city better known for its casual and raw street wear. 2014 saw the young label continue its precipitous rise, garnering international attention from the most important fashion editors and journalists. Most recently, the label was invited by Italian Vogue to participate in the publication’s Vogue Talents/Corner.com showroom during Milan fashion Week, where the designers presented their latest collection to Susy Menkes, Anna Wintour, and Franca Sozzani among other fashion dignitaries. The move to London is a decisive one for the designers’ career and we are certain Achtland will bewitch critics and consumers abroad as it had done here.
Read our interview with the duo from awhile back to see what the designers had to say about their work and Berlin’s inspiring creative sphere. Bon voyage, Achtland!
