Berlin-based designers Anne Hilken & Christian Kurt founded their label, Anntian in 2006, specialising in clean pieces with complex detailing and a uniquely simplistic aesthetic. Designed to tell a story, Hilken and Kurt work with the intention to adhere to a certain theme that envelopes clothing, accessories and interior in an ‘intensive and harmonic way.’ Crafting pieces with regional manufacturers and from ecological fabrics, ANNTIAN creates conceptual pieces; each individually made, hand-printed, and full of hidden details. Seasonal dialogues are illustrated through hand-painted graphics whilst unique cuts add a new dimension to the individuality of each garment.
The inspiration for ANNTIAN’s SS16 ‘SPLISH SPLASH’ collection stemmed from clean wipe cloths, used to wash away colour spots and surplus paint during the screen-printing process. Inspired by the multi-coloured marks and blurred colour stains engrained in the fabric over time, pieces take on this vibrant scattered design whilst the shapes of the smudged spots inform the silhouettes of the collection with soft contoured forms and strangely-cut leftover fabric pieces. Within this subject matter, the collection aims to explore this ‘SPLISH SPLASH’ theme in the wider sense; seeking out grace in the chaotic elements of life and discovering the beauty in the waste that we might not catch at first glance which results in considered, consciously crafted pieces with a soft and subtle femininity.
