Berner Kühl is a Danish menswear brand, started by designer Frederik Berner Kühl.
Frederik Berner Kühl is the designer and founder of his eponymous brand Berner Kühl. Informed by a past in production before moving on to design and a Master's degree from Polimoda in Firenze, Frederik is striving to convey his vision in ultimate materiality.
Prolonging his vision of texture and feel, his ideas first solidify into materials, which are then driving the actual design. Always utilising the key attributes of the raw material in the fabric development phase, the designs often end up being highly dependent on their material origin. The fabric decides what shape is best showcasing the material quality.
With an ambition to create something that is destined to last. The modular wardrobe approach adopted by the brand is calling for less and better consumption. With an intent to educate the consumer on what good product can be. The brand showcased their first runway collection during Copenhagen Fashion Week SS22 and are now back to establish themselves as a show regular.
In these times, sustainability is an ambiguous concept. As a clothing brand, it is difficult and problematic to proclaim sustainability, but that doesn’t mean one shouldn't try. At Berner Kühl, the brand acknowledges the harmful nature of producing and creating clothing. Simply put, the best thing would be not to do it. Thus, the mantra is to be mindful of their practices and create in the most responsible way they can.
First and foremost, the idea of a long-lasting product, something you can wear for years is key. It is the easiest way to consume as little as possible, and thereby, produce less. Secondly, 100 percent transparency is provided about the brand's supply chain. Traceability is key if we want to make sustainable products.
The brand adopts a 360-degree approach to producing better. Utilising all today’s available innovation within certified materials, but also paying attention to production processes – as well as work environments.
