Enfin Levé continues to bring avant-garde techwear to the next level with its latest collection
It’s impossible to mention avant-garde techwear without thinking of Enfin Levé. A Berlin-based label that focuses on “experimental made to order garments with technical solutions”, material innovation has always been at their core, and their latest collection — dubbed Collection XVI — continues their innovative path.
Enfin Levé Collection XVI
Described as a “performance-oriented creative expression inviting to further explore raw, experimental aesthetics”, the pieces in the collection strike the right balance between form and functionality. On one hand, there’s the innovative, technical side that’s designed to push the limits of regular clothing (implemented through their materials and techniques), and on the other, the silhouettes that are made for the everyday life.
Enfin Levé has partnered up with some of the most advanced manufacturers from Switzerland, USA and Italy to produce a wide range of fabrics. One of the highlights for Collection XVI is the Graphene-infused garments — a smart textile which can lower the body temperature of the wearer in hot climates. Aside from that, the brand also explored with new dye experiments and fabric processing techniques to amp up their weatherproof pieces, find in their silhouettes and textures.
Some of their most iconic separates include the Noragi — a traditional Japanese garment worn by farmers — which was reinvented into a reversible bomber jacket with waterproof Stotz Etaproof® fabric on one side and metal shell fabric and net on the other; the Itzala adjustable coat that’s available in an array of fabrics (you can take your pick according to your needs); the silver-plated parka that will oxidise overtime; and the aluminium jacket that will radiate different shine under different lightings.
When it comes to functionality, Enfin Leve dedicated a significant amount of time and effort in researching and deconstructing protective garments, from motorcycle suits and pilot vests to mountaineering equipment and combat uniforms, before reimagining and infusing them into everyday wear.
Continuation of Jewellery collaboration with Gone Archive
For collection XVI, Enfin Levé has also continued their ongoing collaboration with Poland-based artisan jewellery label Gone Archive on an array of handmade-to-order jewellery created by Polish artisan DNYGW. Crafted from precious metal allows including sterling silver, 14k yellow or white gold, the pieces are contemporary yet rough and primitive — the perfect accessories to add to your closet.
