„Die Neue“ (The New) delves into German Modernist Design, focusing on the essentialism and functionality of the Bauhaus movement, known for its visually minimal design langua-ge. This exploration forms the stylistic basis of my menswear collection, which aims to embody a personal narrative. The study contrasts this with an emotional exploration through an analysis of „Wings Of Desire,“ a film by Wim Wenders. Its minimalistic style and poetic narrative reveal profound emotional layers, emphasizing the stark contrast to the often perceived sterility of functional designs. This filmic exploration adds depth to the emotional narrative of the collection. The resulting menswear collection encapsulates this tension between functional rigor and deep emotional expression. It integrates the principles of Bauhaus with the rich emotional insights from the film, weaving human emotions and experiences into the design. This synthesis challenges traditional menswear boundaries and crafts a narrative that reflects my personal journey and insights into design philosophy.
