German brand Rundholz is world-renowned for creating fashion that combines innovative designs, unconventional details and experimental fabric treatments for a distinctly independent look. The husband and wife duo behind the company is Carsten and Lenka Rundholz. Lenka started in the industry as a display and visual artist while Carsten’s background is in graphic design. Together they push the known boundaries of what feminine style can be.Today, Lenka and Carsten design out of a modernized 200-year-old farmhouse in the Lower Rhine region of Germany. Carsten and Lenka have the keen ability to excel at both form and function. With advanced construction techniques and luxurious fabrications, they create fashion forward and intellectual clothing. Shapes cross from edgy to feminine, artful to sporty. Silhouettes are generally slimmer to the body with an emphasis on subtle textural details including pleating, folded fabric, heathered knits and repeating stitch details.
Casual styling and soft, approachable fabrics define Rundholz’s Black Label, first presented in 2006. The clothing from Black Label uses everyday fabrics like stretch cotton and linen to render softer versions of the Mainline silhouettes while also streamlining the avant-garde Rundholz style. Emphasis is on exceptional cotton shirting, sweatshirt materials made into fashion forward pieces and tunics as outerwear. Despite the dark palette, all fabrics are light and transitional. This variety of easy-going and relaxed looks make the collection accessible to all styles.
