The collection “Mongolia” was inspired by Mongolian wrestling known as “Bökh”. The powerful athletes enter the arena with an eagle dance and their fights show ease, strength and sportsmanship. Unforeseen reactions and twists flash into action and
captivate the audience.

The impressive fighters wear loose pants (Banzele) with chaps (Taochu). On top they wear leather butterfly jackets with rivets (Jodag). After each fight the winner receives a colored silk cloth which is knotted into a shawl and worn as a neck accessory (Jangga).

The Jangga trophy is the key element of the collection and is intended to be worn the traditional way around the neck, but also as a variation as top and dress. A cotton-yurtrope from the black market in Ulan-Bator functions as the cord to knot the silk cloths onto. Additionally they are worn with loose and light Banzele pants made of cotton. The Jodag butterfly jackets and Taochu chaps are made of Mongolian cashmere and Austrian loden trimmed with numerous rivets.



Apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world.
They give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
Many tangible dualities such as light and dark are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality of yin and yang.

The collection “Light Black Ease” plays with the symbology of combining the contrary with each other to receive harmony again. Hard edged kimono cuts and shirt-patterns go along with soft and light textiles. Dark colored fabrics are accentuated with hand-airbrushed white veils. The patternmaking is based on geometric shapes and combines elements from eastern and western culture.
All pieces are made from natural and some organic fibers.
