The 43-year-old designer René Storck is based in Frankfurt, with a design studio in Paris. Storck taught himself the ways of designing, accompanied by a tailoring apprenticeship at Alice-Eleonoren-Schule in Darmstadt, Germany. “The dialogue between minimalism and opulence can enrich the minimalist designs, and this produces an exciting language” says Storck about his label.

Frenken about his work: “I like to place things out of context, like to take a very luxurious fabric and stonewash it; seeing things differently than the way your eye is trained to see it.”
