About

Surname: Krude
First name: Lara
University: HAW Hamburg – University of Applied Sciences
Area of study: Fashion Design
Place of residence: Hamburg

The desire to create something with your own two hands is in Lara Krude’s genes. Her “Was bleibt.” collection is dedicated to her grandfather, a custom tailor for men’s suits. As a starting point for her designs, the graduate of Hamburg University of Applied Sciences went in search of his old materials and patterns, only to find that all of his work had long been lost in the mists of time. Out of this emptiness, Lara Krude ultimately created a melancholy world in which a man has to live without his tailor. Asymmetric cuts such as button facings and lapel collars of varying lengths emphasize the uncertainty of this man who has forgotten how to dress properly. Pants over the coat. Pajamas over the jacket. Coat over coat. The 29-year-old up-and-coming designer deconstructed the individual articles of clothing in such a way that they reveal the knowledge of traditional handiwork, her grandfather’s knowledge.

Designer's message

My collection is special because it unites unusual shapes and layers with traditional finishing techniques and craftsmanship. was bleibt. / what remains. Is special because I care about creating a modern design as much as about honoring the past traditions.
