Contemporary Street Costume
Tata Christiane is a vision of the street costume. It proposes an absurd and disturbing vision of beauty, with decline, maladjustment, extravagance, and immoderation. It plays with the borders of elegance, digging up our old memories, recycling the waste of our civilization.
It is a monomania, a machination and a monstrous and sublime piece.
Tata Christiane could have been a punk, if she was not also an ambiguous queen, a one-eyed flutist, a gypsy woman, and a street child. Tata Christiane is for boys and girls, women and transvestites, men and old people, kings, queens and madmen.
Tata Christiane, presentation, history and quotes
Tata Christiane is a Berlin based fashion label founded in 2007 by Julie Bourgeois and Gabriel Santini. The brand develops two collections a year and In House collectors and unique pieces all year round.
We stand for individuality, humor, fun and fantasy coupled with a slow and ethical way to approach dressing and being in the world.
The production is hand-made and collects small regional production practices. The focus is on a variety of different fabrics and techniques. Our sourcing is paying close attention to ecological materials, recycled textiles, up-cycling techniques, small quantities, vintage fabrics and found originals in forgotten cities.
Accordingly, the original prints, the cuts and the fabrics follow from the adaptation of poetic collage. In a word we bring into a contemporary street garment what we call deconstructed couture.
