The hamansutra label was launched in Munich, Germany, in 1996 and the company was formed in London in 2004.
The hamansutra brand presents clothing as art objects, focusing on a holistic view of external changes which in turn necessitate designs to be aligned in keeping.
Formative influences included the clothing division of the German Military Forces, where hamansutra learnt to appreciate the value of timeless design, and the wardrobe department of the Bavarian State Opera, located in King Ludwig’s former bedroom, where hamansutra worked on theater costumes and shoes for productions including Richard Wagner’s ‘Twilight of the Gods’ and ballets by Jacopo Godani.
Armed with a formidable range of skills in top-to-toe fashion creation, the hamansutra brand engages the imagination in an exploration of the thin line between art and fashion.
The slogan ‘a thousand moves in the game of fashion’ expresses this conceptual approach – the desire to provide an artistic backdrop for people as actors in the play of their own lives.
