A Studio Visit with Barre Noire

Earlier this week I took a little trip to green Berlin suburb Wittenau to visit Timm Süssbrich from the award-winning label Barre Noire in his studio where he is currently preparing his upcoming collection that he will be showing at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in July. The bright and spacious studio surrounded by a lovely garden seems to be a great work place with a light atmosphere far away from the hassle in central Berlin. No wonder his collections seem so colorful and fun!

I had the chance to try on some of the menswear pieces from his last collection, the first time he actually designed for boys, and was quite excited about every single piece he made. The fabrics, all of them from manufacturers from France, are quite unique and the abstract artdeco-style structures made of shiny vegan leather are quite impressive handwork and really look amazing.

During my visit I also got to see the first drafts that he made for the #SKYYinspired Instagram challenge by SKYY Vodka and they look really amazing. The challenge is still on until Tuesday, so if you want to take part and win your own custom-made designer piece by Barre Noire you should get your creative juices flowing. Read how to take part here. Everyone who submits will receive one of these cool blue leopard print Barre Noire scarves especially made for the challenge.

While I was there Timm was working on one of his latest pieces that got featured as a must-have in the latest issue of Vogue. The piece will be available along with the rest of his collection at the LNFA store at Bikini Berlin. After the jump you can get some impressions of my visit, the studio and the special scarf for the challenge.
