PATRICK MOHR

...transcending the line between wearable fashion and art

Patrick Mohr’s creations are eccentric, somewhat provocative and outspoken. His fashion flits between avant-garde and street wear, avoiding glamour in favour of exploring the realms of art within fashion. Graduating in 2007 from ESMOD fashion school in Munich, Patrick Mohr was awarded the Prix Createur for the best collection. He worked for Henrik Vibskov in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he found inspiration for his own unique style. In 2008, Patrick Mohr founded his own fashion label. Patrick transcends the line between wearable fashion and art, aiming to expose the needs of an individual through its outer jacketing – regardless of society norms. His creations are based on the gender mainstreaming strategy as a future utopia of a modern, emancipated society, hence all of his designs are exclusively unisex. Equilateral triangles, squares and parallelograms are woven into every creation, highlighting his unique fascination with geometry and a modular assembly system, whose simpleness and logic are the groundwork of the designer’s blueprints. Nature is also one of Patrick Mohr’s biggest sources of inspiration, finding its appropriation in the shape of materials such as wood or jute. His ideal of natural beauty are Canadian and Scandinavian landscapes, and in this context, natural abrasion and the perishability of materials become part of every piece. Creating bold, avant-garde shows that have shocked the fashion world, with acts such as casting homeless people to construe the destiny of the individual wearer, he is often cast as the 'enfant terrible' of German fashion. Yet more recently, he has entered the mainstream world of sneakers, developing unique collaborations with some of the market's biggest brands, taking his distinctive vision into a new arena. Not Just A Label will be featuring Patrick Mohr's latest collaboration with basketball brand K1X in the shop soon, so we had the chance to get a fascinating insight into his creative mind...
