Phoebe Heess studied fashion design at the ESMOD in Munich and Berlin. After her graduation she interned and worked for Adidas, Limi Feu Tokyo and House of Holland and became cofounder of the label HectorHector.
She currently designs for Adidas as well as her own collection.
Her style is based on the work of Pierre Soulages, whose monochromatic black sujet elaborates on the colours different black surfaces reflect when lighted.
Phoebe creates these effects by using a variety of often contradicting materials. 3D Mesh is mixed with Carbon, Kevlar and Functional Neoprene. And newest technology makes it possible to explore even extremer aspects of the light spectrum, ranging from reflective black fabrics and wearable illuminants to blacker than black property garments.
Black Current is Phoebe Heess' second solo collection. It is inspired by the treshold between the net, quantum mechanics and magic and the functional clothing future practicioners/hackers might wear.
Black is not a colour, black is a current.
