As if the subversive claim “paint it black” was stitched into the sophisticated designs, the re-discovery of femininity finds a post-romantic echo in the luxurious, clear-black cloth of AUGUSTIN TEBOUL.
An aesthetic that arises from the conception of two contrasting personalities: German-born Annelie Augustin with subtle, minimal shapes and her sophisticated mind and French-born Odély Teboul, the rather chaotic, nostalgic craftsman.
Both graduated with honors at Esmod Paris in 2006. Subsequently Annelie worked for Yohji Yamamoto for Adidas and Odély for Jean Paul Gaultier. In 2009 they combine their visions in the collection “cadavre exquis” that was honored with three awards in both France and Germany. Thus encouraged they decided to transform the project into a label, positioned on the edge between ready-to-wear and haute couture: AUGUSTIN TEBOUL. In 2011 the label received the highest priced German fashion award SYFB.
Inspired by Surrealism the designers leave enough space for chance in the process of creation, while they insist on flawless workmanship and finest materiality. Deeply routed in the craft of tailoring the duo combines poetry and gravity in their cutting-edge designs. AUGUSTIN TEBOUL stands for an exclusive, avant-garde and yet mind-blowingly feminine look.
