Christian Blanken is a UK based designer who was born in the Netherlands and grew up in the Far East and later the UK.
He graduated in 1990 with an MA (Honours) in Fashion Design from Central Saint Martins School of Art, having initially studied Art and Art History together with Fashion Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Arnhem, The Netherlands.
After six years of honing his skills working in New York with a number of US based global brands, Christian returned to the UK in 1998 and has since worked with some of the most iconic and successful names in UK, Italian and European fashion. He is well regarded within the industry, not only for his creative skills, but his commercial instincts also.
In partnership with one of Europe’s largest clothing manufacturers, Christian re-established his own label for Fall/Winter 2008 with complete Mens and Womens collections.
A great deal of research goes into every collection and particular attention is paid to fabric research, tailoring, fit, trim and detailing, while the signature of both the Mens and Womenswear collections is a strong and defined silhouette, a linear, almost severe purity of line, a certain utilitarian quality within the detailing of garments, as well as a limited but sometimes intense use of colour.
Over the next few years our aim is to expand the collections in scope and breadth every season and, at the same time, attempt to stay true to an overriding philosophy of making impeccable, beautifully made, timeless pieces that can weather the cyclical and, sometimes, disposable nature of fashion and be enjoyed again and again.
Design signatures: “Clean, tailored, sharp, luxe and modern, not sweet!”
