Creating space for Emotional Studies, Dynamic Performance and Practicality combined with Tailored Elegance

London-based designer René Scheibenbauer blends collaboration and modern technology to craft dynamic clothing.

His sharp tailoring allow movement through sculpturally draped four-way stretch fabrics that making the become malleable to the wearers body.  The clothes allow space and feature functional elements such as compartments, hoods, pockets, and drawstrings.

Focused on the wearer's experience, Scheibenbauer considers how they feel and move in his creations as they journey through the world. He seeks to rework tailoring into a contemporary wardrobe characterised by sleek functionality with the focus on creating dynamic opportunities for everyday city living.
