The work of Berlin-based designer Rike Feurstein combines a pure, sensuous, and emphatically modern aesthetic with the highest level of artisanship and luxurious materiality.
Her celebrated designs eagerly explore the fine line between art and fashion.
Deeply rooted in the almost extinct craft of millinery she sculpts hats and clothing in avant-garde, elaborate shapes. One such fashion forward style – a futuristic, yet casual cap handcrafted in the finest felts - won her a RedDot Design Award in 2013 and has been nominated for the German Design Award 2015.
With a keen painterly eye, Rike Feurstein experiments with intricate color combinations, invents surprising surface structures and plays with whimsical, surrealist details, thus creating stylish, exclusive, and elegant clothes and accessories for women and men.
During her show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin Rike Feurstein - who is the proud owner of Rhodesian Ridgeback Byron - presented collars from her new dog accessories' line. Her dog concept store on Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. 16 will open doors in February 2015 offering great items for all dogs and the people who love them.
