Berlin-based menswear brand ADD started up in 2000, though the designer, Wibke Deertz, has been far from stagnant since then. Deertz's collections have been designed and produced everywhere from Buenos Aires to Bangkok as her work pivots on multicultural influences and manufacturing techniques. The aesthetic, no matter what country Deertz is living in, always embodies the laid-back cool that typifies Berlin culture by way of easy contemporary separates. Check out our first glimpse at the Fall 09 collection below.
We're not saying that the Alexander Wang or Venessa Bruno rolled-up sweat shorts are anything less than perfect but who are we to say there's any harm in a DIY project in order to stay on that 2009 budget.
