Alluring, powerful and fiery, the classic Code of Ottolinger is made, broken and mixed by history, contemporary life and personal experience.
Inspired by the elements of nature, the AW20 collection is an example of invisible sophistication – a symbol of sensuality and harmony for the contemporary women.
Ottolinger AW20 skillfully blends beautiful raw materials, weaving together Denim from reused and recycled cotton, hand knitted Swiss Alpine details and playful vegan shearling jackets.
The dreamlike blue of the print from LA based artist Julien Nguyen enhances the power of the handdyed cloudy pur- ple flanell. Timeless duffle over coats paired with vibrant shiny pleather pants, burned silky suits and mystical fringy raw edged gowns.
Ottolinger’s handwork shows the irresistible combination of grace, strength and independence of spirit as the Alpine interpretation of couture.
Ottolinger’s SS20 collection – clever and strange, lyrical and addictive. Featuring hand-dyed colors, hypnotic denim finishings and evocative photo prints in collaboration with the German artist Lucie Stahl as well as traditional Swiss gingham and tomato drawings by the painter Georgia Gardner Gray.
Reconstructed premium Nike Air Max 90 are turning Ottolinger’s handwork into a whole different story and open a new world for Nike and Ottolinger’s DNA of sport, craft and innovation. Dreamlike CBD treasures on the signature ceramic bags and the first Ottolinger x KannaSwiss CBD lipstick narrate grand space epics and painting a magnificent portrait of the modern women in a busy world and imagined near future.
“The New Year Train” by Hao Jingfang – a punchy little story, perfect in its pace and length, delivers a hammer-blow of a punchline. The entire story is written as an interview between a reporter and an engineer who has designed a train which uses wormholes to pass through the spacetime continuum and deliver its passengers home for the Lunar New Year on time.
The conversation is witty and whimsical; the dichotomy at play is fun and fluid; and when the engineer asks his final question, he is posing it to us, the reader, asking us why we often seem in such a rush to reach life’s finish line. To use a short, simple, and playfully funny story to present a philosophical message that, while not breaking any new ground, invites at least a few moments of serious pondering, is highly appreciated and exactly what we need in our everyday life.

Ottolinger SS20 is bringing exactly this fantastic realism into the everyday. The special extra moment – it’s the CBD effect for the busy Ottolinger women to relax.
