As the first light of spring graces the horizon, GmbH presents a collection that encapsulates not just the season’s renewal but a reinvigorating shield for the soul. The Spring/Summer 2024 “Kurban” collection, deriving its name from the Turkish word for sacrifice, weaves a story of resilience, spirituality, and protection. The aesthetic brilliance of designers Benjamin Huseby and Serhat Isik illuminates a path where fashion transcends attire, morphing into a sanctuary for its wearers.
Crafted in the aftermath of a challenging period, the soul of the collection emanates a gentle yet resilient spirit. Huseby and Isik’s philosophy, rooted in the sacrificial nature of their profession, paints a narrative where garments are not mere pieces of cloth but protective entities. “Working in fashion is very sacrificial in a way,” the designers confessed, their voices imbued with a mix of solemnity and hope.
A departure from the conventional spring palette, GmbH’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection is a serene dance of black and white. These chosen hues, though restrained, breathe life into a narrative where darkness and light coexist, each drawing strength from the other. “These are the colors that us and our community mostly wear,” shared Huseby and Isik, underscoring a deep connection to their roots and community.
The designers’ artistic prowess is unveiled in garments where cutouts and couture volumes, drapes and capes, reside in harmonious existence. Arabic letters adorn shirts and dresses, not just as decorative elements but as carriers of protective spells and affirmations of safety. In this collection, fashion becomes a dialogue between the seen and unseen, a journey where contemporary and traditional rituals intertwine seamlessly.
GmbH’s staunch stance against real leather is upheld, marking another chapter where ethical choices and aesthetic allure merge gracefully. The Spring/Summer 2024 collection showcases over-knee boots crafted in ethereal transparent organza and mules birthed from the transformation of cowboy boots. The brand’s unwavering commitment to ethical fashion is epitomized in bags constructed from recycled synthetic water-based materials and apple waste, signifying an alliance of style and sustainability.
