Merz b. Schwanen

Driven by his passion for traditional fabrication processes, Peter Plotnicki created a collection of garments solely made by tubular knitting machines from the 1920s-1950s. All the tops are produced in Germany, and are based on authentic workwear from the same period as the machines. Some of these pieces feature a modified fit, while others are copied from the original piece down to the last seam. No matter what the provenance of the individual piece is, the collection as a whole is made to exacting specifications and a standard of quality that is unmatched by modern apparel factories.
