Simply Wear

Sophisticated cutting techniques need appropriate, high-quality fabrics to showcase their effects to perfection. “Clear-cut lines and refined details can make the difference between a piece of clothing and a holistically conceived work of art,” says Stefanie Wiebelhaus. The idea behind her “Simply Wear” label is to create well-designed, perfectly wearable one-of-a-kind garments. The CIRCLEEGG coat, for example, is a composition of black and egg-shaped white Jacquard fabrics. Like the Redline coat in the 1950s style, it is one of the design classics that she has complemented with new accents or made of a different type of fabric. For Wiebelhaus, the challenge is to always come up with new, fascinating combinations. Neither created for a specific season nor following any fashionable trend, her collection stands for consummately stylish designs, quality craftsmanship and timeless elegance. The prices range from 200 euros to several thousand for bridal dresses and evening gowns.
