ABOUT US

PORTENIERROTH – THE ALL-ENCOMPASSINGLY COMFORTABLE FIT

We design on the body and craft & fabricate in own production facilities and in collaboration with regionally-based manufacturers. Direct human contact is at the centre of our work. this is the only way we can guarantee handcrafted perfection and high quality over the long-term.

We develop our collections with a focus on the seasons and through this approach to fashion achieve an all-encompassingly comfortable fit. because genuine beauty is self decided.

 


CONCEPT

Every year, the two designers develop a new collection concept under their label PortenierRoth. Based on the collection concept, they derive two self-contained, but in their essence largely identical collections, each with a different focus: “Croisière” describes the yearly concept, while “focus summer” and “focus winter” describe the seasons. The two-part collection concept enables the designers to act economically and to allocate their resources for the development and production of their business in an optimal way. At the same time, they always manage to make a fashion statement, since both designers follow the dictated fashion cycle, while creating an independent, unique product.


CREATION

Every collection starts with a drafting phase on a three-dimensional body. The emphasis lies in the construction of a three-dimensional draft referring to the woman and her figure. With each new dress, the designers examine how the materials’ movements best caress the female body.

This may be one of the reasons why the creations from PortenierRoth convince their protagonists and let them shine in a modern and timeless light. This nonchalance is accentuated by letting the models walk the catwalk in oversized men’s shoes. It’s only by doing this, do the models get that laissez-faire walk the two designers have in mind when imagining their clothes. This is why not only their clothes, but also the presented shoes are an encouragement for a stronger (fashion) consciousness.


PRODUCTION

The collections created in their own “High Fashion Production” are rooted in regional handcraft, but international in their orientation and implementation. The strong connection with the product leads to its distinct origin and authenticity. The product grows and takes shape at the same place where its idea was born. Visions regarding form, functionality and quality can be followed through without making compromises and can continuously be reconsidered. Having their own place of production enables the designers to be ahead of their time and set a great example for others.
