PAL OFFNER - AVANTGARDE CLOTHING
Pal Offner burst on to the scene after their conception is 2013. Offering a collection of contemporary crafted clothing to blur the lines between masculinity and femininity.
It was a Friday night in December 2013 when the duo behind the label made the decision decision found PAL OFFNER with designer Nele Offner as the creative heart and Sabina Pal, as the strategic head.
The duo combine as opposites with the same aesthetic sense. Their affection for non conformity and individualism is the key foundation for the duo to build the perfect 'imperfect look’.
NELE OFFNER studied fashion at the University of Pforzheim, where she graduated in 2011. Before PAL OFFNER was born, she worked as a designer of avantgarde fashion.
SABINA PAL started her career in advertising after her studies of media economics. The past seven years before founding PAL OFFNER she worked at an agency – first as an account manager and later as a strategic planner.
Pal Offner aims to blur the boundaries between masculinity and femininity, combining straight forward and experimental silhouettes with the Zeitgeist. The label encourages the wearer to define their own limits merging genders to expand each individuals personal taste. Unisex becomes multi-sex, feeling shamelessly at ease.
THE ART OF MAKING___
A strict design design process is disrupted by raw cut edges, exceptional details, creased fabrications and handmade finishings. Asymmetries and deconstruction fuse together with classic tailoring. Playing with polarity.
An underlying philosophy turns into reality: A separate button ribbon in all PAL OFFNER jackets and shirts allows the wearer to autonomously decide which side the garment shall button. Singular, high value materials and special finishing processes complete the aesthetic of the collection. Each collection is produced in Germany and other select european countries, where specialists of all fields offer the best quality.
Pal Offner is an exciting prospect for the future, with firm foundations already in place, this label will continue to grow from strength to strength.
