PUGNAT stands for sophisticated knitwear. Technical distinction, subtle craftsmanship, a passionate spirit, and high quality standards are the defining traits of this unique label. The collections speak of feminine beauty and subtle sexiness. They are sensuous and humorous. Classic and organic. Delicate and opulent. Timeless and durable.
Antje Pugnat created her personal language during magical moments at the knitting machine. After discovering her passion for machine knits, she went to London and studied Fashion/Womenswear/ Knitwear at the Royal College of Art. Only where the machine encounters its limits does she take up the needles to work by hand. In 2007, she founded the PUGNAT fashion label. In 2009, her designs attracted the attention of Wolfgang Joop, which resulted in a collaboration in the area of hand knits with the WUNDERKIND label for winter 2010/11.
