Unrath & Strano is an established label produced in Berlin by two designers, Klaus Unrath from Germany and Ivan Strano of Basel, Switzerland. Berlin-based Smeilinener designer Mischa Woeste is known for her use of geometric patterns and saturated colors. Also from Berlin is Frida Weyer, who was the winner in the “Designers From Tomorrow” competition at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin this past January. The intensive colorful knitwear looks are from Christina Krämer, a Swiss-based designer whose pieces are all handmade in Switzerland. Also in the mix are customizable Toc Toc shoes by Barbara Sorgen. Though shown in only one version here, the concept is that you have a common base and can choose the straps from a wide variety of options.
