Small apron

Frank Leder

The fabric is about 60% linen and 40% cotton – according to Frank Leder’s guesstimation – which makes for a very comfotable and light apron. Hailing from an old army surplus, this finely woven fabric was meant to be used as covers in the late sixties, early seventies. Why they never fulfilled their original destiny? Because, Frank Leder tells us, World War III never happened. And so these wonderful fabrics was left to gather dust in storage. It’s just as well that Frank came along and decided to breathe new life into these old darlings. The idea? Using excellent craftsmanship to update a similarly well-crafted item, saving resources and preventing waste. Frank has named their stunning colour “Baltic Blue” after the Baltic Sea.

This apron comes without a print and measures approx 77,5cm x 77,5cm.

Frank Leder
If there is one designer who brings German tradition into his work without dabbling in odiously naive notions of “Heimat”,  it’s Frank Leder. In terms of aesthetics and production, his collections are firmly indebted to the legacy of German craftsmanship, reimagining guild clothing and traditional folk costumes.The bulk of Frank’s sales happen in Japan and frankly, we think it’s a scandal that there is as yet not one German fashion store selling his stunning attire. His cosmetics, too, are full of subtle references and Frank’s trademark wit. His fragrances may sound unusual, but are thoroughly joyful – don’t be surprised if even a hand soap named after long begone butcher’s products leaves you wanting more!
