Parrot

Parrot is an independent fashion agency based in Amsterdam, representing designers from Europe and the US. Parrot represents designers of woman’s clothing with a modest feminine feel alongside a confident attitude. With a preference for sophistication, conscious materials and a laid back feel, every designer has their own point of difference.

We work with a small team trying to build direct and personal relationships with both designers and retailers. We are operating within the advanced contemporary and designer segment.

With showrooms in London, Paris, Antwerp and Amsterdam, Parrot has a steady partnership with online players, department stores and multi brand boutiques. Together we are trying to build a qualitative and sustainable distribution for both supplier and retailer.

KASSL Editions

KASSL Editions KASSL Editions

One original, vintage fisherman’s coat – wonderfully shiny because its many years of wear – was the starting point for a collection of coats in different lengths and colours resulting in chic but highly functional outerwear.

KASSL Editions are manufactured in Kassel, the German city famous for the Documenta. Our manufacturer is renowned for producing trustworthy utility wear preferred by both the national fire brigade and Manufactum.

Bernadette

Bernadette Bernadette

Bernadette is a luxury ready-to-wear label based in Antwerp by mother and daughter Bernadette and Charlotte De Geyter. Their collections are defined by easy-to-wear silk dresses and refreshing prints, designed exclusively in-house.

A love for nature and the arts are leitmotifs that run through Bernadette’s aesthetic. Ultrafeminine, metropolitan glamour is juxtaposed with a poetic vision of a life somewhere remote and paradisal. Clean lines add a graceful note to the label's sober silhouettes while colourful floral prints echo a timeless and free-spirited allure.

GAUGE81

GAUGE81 GAUGE81

A study in contrast, GAUGE81 is the love child of Monika Silva, a Colombian knitwear maven with a decade of industry experience.

To steer the brand’s creative vision, she enlisted Amsterdam based fashion consultant Gijsje Ribbens — an on-going contributor of Vogue Netherlands, and knitwear designer Fira Rietveld, formerly of The Row and Calvin Klein. Together, they honed a maiden collection of calculated restraint and femininity that alludes to the crisp, no-fuss 90s with a dash of Sex and the City.
