Founded by the female design-duo Anke Bruns and Stefanie Herbold in 2002, the z.B. Ö Berlin design team specialises in the concept of wrap around clothing. The collections consist of casual sweats and t-shirts with wrap over hoods,scarfs, trousers and tunics in soft wearable easy fabrics cleverly deconstructed, and dominated by function and form giving the wearer a comfortable loose fit and the lazy elegance that has won the brand a devoted following. Central to the collection is the Perennial Hoodie, z.B. ÖBerlinís best seller that has rewarded them with international recognition and sales in European, American and Asian markets and looks set to continue marking them as a global brand.
