Minimalism and luxury receive a new definition with Augustin Teboul, a Berlin-based fashion label noted for the surrealist spirit and the most versatile use of only one colour; an inky black. 

It’s a unique imagery that meets your eye at the pages of the Augustin Teboul lookbooks and imaginatively staged installation videos that replace common fashion shows. Creatures from unknown dreams, clad in blackness of different textures; shapes that seem to emerge from the dead of night on the edge between dreams and nightmares. Augustin Teboul is amazing surrealism to wear – part ready-to-wear, part Haute Couture, strong and vulnerable like Baudelaire’s metre, visionary and sharp like Gustave Doré’s engravings. The designers weave a unique fashion story that develops further each season. Each collection displays a new take, a new scene from what seems the same dreamy setting: black veils, bejewelled netting and lace, embroideries and crochet, rich textures and beads in a never-ending flow of inspiration.
