“In an empty lot in Friedrichshain, a former German Democratic Republic building stands as a symbol of revelry, culture and hedonist fun. Berghain, the infamous Berlin club, has one of the world’s strictest door policies and a black-clad crowd of techno followers who come to bask in its weekend-long parties year-round. Shrouded in secrecy, there is a certain aesthetic that is akin to the techno temple. These young German designers perfectly translate the club’s effortless cool into a fashion that will help you get into Berghain.
IAMKILOGRAM is an independent, Berlin-based fashion label founded in 2017 by Margot B, the label’s artistic director. Creativity, colour and uniqueness are at the core of IAMKILOGRAM’s ethos, who launched its first avant-garde streetwear collection in October 2017 via the label’s webshop iamkilogram.com. Designing outfits from vintage sports jerseys, scarves and other second-hand upcycled materials, the label produces outfits that can’t be replicated and is run entirely out of Berlin with its concept, creation and production processes all taking place at a studio in the city (the raw materials used are also locally sourced). Drawing inspiration from Berlin and its nightlife, IAMKILOGRAM’s designs veer away from the traditional Berlin black to let you stand out and look the part for Berghain.”
