My name is: Alexandra Kiesel.
I am: 28 years old.

My favorite designer is: Henrik Vibskov, Bruno Pieres, Raf Simons.
My passion outside of fashion: Art, sculpture, illustrations, street art, installations.
What I always have with me: A large bag with a whole lot of things that have been in there forever.
What is striking about Alexandra Kiesel’s women’s collection is her delightful use of color. Just like a set of building blocks, Kiesel places the primary colors next to each other in a geometric pattern. Monochrome classics in red, green, yellow and blue display their special brilliance through the individual combination possibilities of those wearing them. The influences of Bauhaus artists is easy to see in the drafts of the designer, who graduated from the Berlin Weissensee School of Art. In this way the simple materials and the classic cuts are enhanced through small details like square shoulders, a collar, or a small belt. Under the title “Building Block Individuals 6/12/24,” the collection lives up to its name and creates a sense of versatility and individuality. Through the flexible combination of “modules” the wearers can find their own style.
