The story of Clemens en August runs back to the 19th century when the two brothers sold high quality fabrics directly to the wealthy farmers in the north of the Netherlands. Walking by foot from farm to farm they offered an exceptional value.
2 centuries later German designer Alexander Brenninkmeijer also bypasses the traditional retailing by selling his Men´s and Women´s collection at contemporary art centers and museums (and the label’s name honors its ancestors concept: “Clemens en August”).
The announcement about the collection comes every year by the good old postman with details about the contemporary art fashion “tour”: 10 cities for 3 days each (all details here). And if you don’t find yourself in continental Europe this spring – the collection is also sold online.
