From Yves Saint Laurent's Mondrian dresses in the 1960s to Alexander McQueen's infamous runway shows, art and fashion have always fed into each other in literal and not-so-literal ways.
German label Zitat takes the ideas, hues, and forms of contemporary art and turns them into clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories. Founded in 2007 by Cologne-based art historian Anna Boess, and with its own boutique since 2013, the young label handmakes wearable pieces in limited runs of up to 50 pieces. Zitat's gym bags enrich a familiar form with contemporary art's myriad colours, giving the everyday a touch of high culture.
Besides the Zitat products, you can find other beautiful labels, that produce their collection in Germany and Europe.
