Founded in 2003 by Wolfgang Joop, already well-known as an illustrator, painter and designer of his own name brand, WUNDERKIND reinterprets the elegance of the Prussian past and the atmosphere of a sophisticated Berlin into a near future. Joop breaks with convention and elaborates contrasts in order to design an original contemporary. Excellent craftsmanship declined with an avant-garde freedom, these are the coordinates of the modern Berlin fashion house, totally independent, whose direct control over every stage of the production allows an ultra-experimental process, but with a couture approach. Signs of identification are the research on prints, the techno-reinterpretations of the animalier, incursions of the plots Weave Pattern in fabric or leather, tweed and tartan mixtures, couture lace, washed fabrics purposely deconstructed.
A sexy, sassy line that seems to shimmy even on the hanger, Wunderkind clothes are built slightly oversize for a larger-than-life effect. Flirty colors like carnation red and robins-egg blue are standards for Joop, who builds fun silhouettes like billowy skirts and low-slung cargo pants for his women.
