Merz b. Schwanen
This is a true homage to working mans apparel from the 20’s 30’s and 40’s brought to life by the vision of Peter Plotnicki with the help of a traditional knitwear manufacturer based in Swabian Alb. Driven by a passion for the traditional processes they created a collection solely made by circular knitting machines as was used in the twenties to the fifties.
All tops are based on original clothing, ranging from the early decades of the 19th century to the army shirts of the 60’s.
The Made in Germany label extends to every aspect of the brand, right down to the swing tags, buttons and packaging.
Merz b. Schwanen is a brand name with a long and proud tradition founded in 1911 and so it’s no surprise that it was chosen to represent the new collection.
