The Berlin-based brand Ottolinger is run by creative duo Christa Bösch and Cosmina Gadient, who will immediately and cheerily, when prompted, describe their designs as science fiction inspired.
Futuristic pop phenomenon Charli XCX has likened one of her favorite brands to the movie The Fifth Element, and it holds up—in the form of waxed hair, wavy designs, and sticky silhouettes. And the fact that if someone walked in the room wearing Ottolinger, just like if Milla Jovovich strutted in wearing only a strategic array of bandages, you’d probably assume they were alien.
Plus, Ottolinger offered something hopefully not too futuristic. Sparkling ceramic handbags sported CBD accessories like little lipsticks by an Ottolinger x KannaSwiss collab.
