Mads Dinesen is a dark, innovative mens and womenswear label based in Berlin. It was founded by the talented, young Danish designer, Mads Dinesen, who is one of the most visionary fashion artists in town. Dinesen uses fashion to explore topics such as politics, society and culture, as he debunks mainstream notions of physical beauty and sexuality. His latest collection, SS 2015 "Burned Child", imbues his frustrations in a follow-up to his previous collection AW14 "Smoke-Clad Warrior" - a tribute to all the warriors in history who fought for what they believed in, along with protest and resistance propaganda calling for a "Fight the fight", all intending to make the world a better place. Many of the pieces in his latest collection are evocative of Dinesen's childhood memories, mixed with a ritualistic and spiritual vibe, casting a wake-up call to the world. His collections are haunting and inspiring, as his pieces highlight tolerance and diversity, punctuated with tribal and ethnic references. Every garment has a bold expression, a living statement, and inspiration of revolutionary ideas. He is not afraid to take risks, and we look forward to seeing more of his daring work that repeatedly leaves us in awe.
