Timeless and wearable functionality
Ma. Strum and Dockers move into the 2nd floor at the 14 oz. store during BREAD & BUTTER BERLIN
In the course of social change over the last few years, many end-consumers have developed a stronger desire for authenticity and sustainability.The 14 oz. Store has recognised this trend very early on and, since its opening in July 2008, has made it its priority to present brands whose philosophy is based on values such as tradition, originality and authenticity.14 oz. is very happy to present the label Ma.Strum as part of the leading fashion trade fare BREAD & BUTTER BERLIN framework: Ma.Strum will be exhibiting its current menswear collection from Juy 1st - July 3rd, 2009 on the 2nd floor of 14 oz. Under management of Donrad Duncan, the label combines classic, traditional cuts with innovative high-tech materials and so creates optimal wearability and clear, timeless fashion kudos.Duncan, the former creative director for the line Victorinox/ Swiss Army, continues on the heritage of the great Massimo Osti (Stone Island, Cp Company) with his own menswear collection Ma.Strum. The functional timelessness of his designs inspires a broad, fashion conscious audience that places equal importance on sustainability, value and wearability alike. Alongside Ma.Strum, Dockers ® will present its K1-Khaki Museum in the premises. The brand Dockers ® has a long history and tradition to show for itself: since 1906, Levi's, under the label Sunset (later Dockers), has produced Chinos. Its comfortable ease of wear combined with the casual aesthetic has made this design a timeless fashion classic, surpassing short term trends till this day. Dockers ® K1 - Limited Edition picks up on the design of the Chino from the late 30s and has now brought out a very limited edition of 1000 pair worldwide.With its K - 1 Limited Edition, Dockers ® displays half a century of Khaki history on the 2nd floor of 14 oz. Special guest Sir Henry Lumsden III. will take you on a journey through time – from the origin of K - 1 through to its design interpretation today." We are very pleased that Ma.Strum and Dockers ® have decided to present their collection to an international industry clientele on the exclusive 2nd floor of the 14 oz. premises during BREAD & BUTTER BERLIN", states Karl-Heinz Müller. "The extraordinary collection, designed from the original design drafts, fits in perfectly with the remarkable and very exclusive setting of the 14 oz. 2nd floor."
