GmbH fall winter 2022

GmbH presents the Autumn Winter 2022 collection as part of Paris Fashion Week. The collection began with a “deeply personal exploration of our relationship with religion, couture and sex. We have always talked about fashion as a kind of protection, of the physical and spiritual kind. Fashion as a shield. We came across an Ottoman soldier’s undergarments from the 16th century. These silk robes intended to be worn under one’s armour were covered by hand painted protective calligraphy.

This mixture of religion, superstition and art reminded us of Serhat’s grandfather, who wrote these protective scriptures in Arabic for anyone that required them in their village in Turkey. They would normally be hidden in leather pendants (in Turkish muskas) or sewn into undergarments. In a dream the words “Safe From Harm” came to us, which became an affirmation we rendered in Arabic calligraphy created by Syrian artist Abdelrazak Shaballot, and printed on silk.”
