Christina Fassbender of FASSBENDER attributes the brand’s new SS22 collection to the island of Ibiza, which has been the main source of inspiration.”It is our favourite place on earth—with its breathtaking landscapes and warm, welcoming people—and has been our summer sanctuary since childhood,” she explains.
Summer Sanctuary, thus, became the name of the show. In it, FASSBENDER marries their signature Hanseatic elegance, comfort and functionality with Balearic textures and Mediterranean and sandy hues. Wardrobe staples were complemented by playful, billowing summer dresses and flowing trousers with loosely buttoned shirts, capturing the essence of the White Island.
As a brand that is at the forefront of new and innovative approaches to sustainability, they introduced a must-have leather jacket with matching shorts made from soft Desserto® cactus leather. Other collection highlights included vibrant, ethically produced Ahimsa silk garments, a red slit cocktail dress with dramatic shoulders, along with selected pieces from their first classic, all-natural, denim collection.
The models were also seen wearing beautiful ceramic necklaces and bracelets inspired by the flora and fauna of the island—a tribute to Balearic artisanship through their collaboration with Galician artist, Maria Josefa Sanchez Castedo.
