March 2nd


Ottolinger AW21 is a collection for a drastically changed world. 

We have lost and renewed our faith in the power of creativity. A duality embedded in our ‘future-elf’ collection which features healing knits, comforting dresses, exaggerated and dreamlike prints by Cheyenne Julien, business suits for the 3rd dimension, and shielding outerwear intuitively sculpted as if by nature, after a billion of years of random mutations. 

The clothes have the ability to convey a variety of effects, from comfort, to happiness or intense curiosity – often at the same time. 

Ottolinger AW21 is fundamentally a grand tale of both realism and futural magic; a melding of past-reinterpretation and future-hopecrafting, that draws on themes of rebellion, resistance, transformation of tradition, and a defiance of authority: all key pillars of the ‘future-elf’ aesthetic.
