A graduate from the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Daniel Andresen is awarded the Flanders Fashion Institute's grand prize in his final year. He hones his skills in Haider Ackermann's studio and works with Hilde Frunt, one of Belgium's most respected knitwear designers. In January 2010, he decides to launch his own label.
Born in Germany -but based in Antwerp- Andresen has an understanding of refinement which is innate and subtle. His menswear displays a soft touch, using craft and textures in a light-handed manner. The irregular yarns of a slouchy cardigan recall wave ripples in sandstone. A fitted, lambskin bomber has the casual ease of a lived-in shirt. The perch leather sleeves of a silk-knit jacket evoke the coarseness of tree bark. Defined by their sensual imperfections, Andresen's clothes conjure up emotions and sensations, capturing fleeting moments of pleasure.
Fabric combinations add dynamism and strength to the silhouette. Working with natural fibres, Andresen favours silk, cotton, linen and wool. He uses skins in a dexterous way, mixing them with his signature knitwear shapes. Comfort and lightness are important in his designs, emphasising his interest in movement and independence. His clothes enhance the wearer's personality, revealing his individual traits of character. They highlight the body, too, without ever constraining it.
