BLÆNK

BERLIN-AMSTERDAM,
GERMANY, HOLLAND

In July 2012, Blaenk was awarded 1st prize by the Berlin City Council for the prestigious, SYFB Competition 2012.

Blaenk was also recently invited for the next 2 years to showcase their collections at the German Vogue Salon held by editor in chief, Christiane Arp during the upcoming Berlin Fashion Weeks.

Blænk’s women’s wear collection S/S 2013 is based on assemblage techniques that transform vintage clothing into couture pieces that are exlusive and luxurious. By collaging vintage pieces with high-end Italian fabrics, Blænk creates collector’s items which speak of uniqueness and sustainability. 

Hand-made finishings such as, flowers, experimental fabric manipulations and knitting embellish the clothing and accessories. Blænk uses light, fluid fabrics and plissees while placing an emphasis on draping, volume and craft.

A thoughtful selection of red shades, which range from persimmon to royal fuchsia, are juxtaposed against white and off-white tones on elongated silhouettes that emit elegance and romanticism.

The focus on couture and experimentation results in a collection that stands for femininity and modernity.

BLÆNK

BERLIN-AMSTERDAM,
GERMANY, HOLLAND

Blænk is a collaboration between the German design duo Silke Geib and Nadine Möllenkamp. Their aims are to develop a women’s wear collection that focuses on high fashion and experimentation.

Silke Geib studied fashion design at Esmod International Paris in France. Her graduation collection, a menswear collection, was presented at the “14è Festival International des Arts de la Mode Hyères”, where she was one of the finalists. Afterwards she worked as a women’s wear and menswear designer for fashion houses such as Maison Martin Margiela, J. Lindeberg and Viktor & Rolf.

Nadine Möllenkamp was educated in fashion design at the Royal Academy of Fine Art, in Antwerp, Belgium. Her graduation collection, a mens- and women’s wear collection, was presented at IT’S # 5 Fashion Competition, where she was one of the finalists. Afterwards she worked as a women’s wear designer for the Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf.

The two designers crossed paths in Amsterdam, working for Viktor & Rolf, where their design interests immediately gave them a common bond. Soon after their initial meeting, they formed Blænk in 2010. With Geib based in Berlin and Möllenkamp based in Amsterdam, the fashionable pair has chosen an unconventional way of working together. Their company name Blænk is the phonetic language for the word blank and marks the beginning of something new and unknown.

 The aim of Blænk lies in its focus on high fashion and experimentation. The result is an elaborate, made-to-measure collection, which is ultra feminine, elegant and innovative at the same time. The mix between soft and strong elements gives the collection a subtle edge. Blænk aims to create exclusive, hand-crafted couture products referring to ‘high dressmaking’ and following a ‘do-it-yourself’ philosophy.
