Ottolinger was founded in 2015 by Cosima gadient and Christa B ö Sch, designers from Switzerland and Germany. After they met during their study at the Basel Institute of design, they soon set off a bold and avant-garde challenge in the field of luxury goods. Shortly after winning the vfiles runway with their first series, they were recruited by Kanye West as yeezy's designers. The following year, he was shortlisted for the Louis Vuitton Group Award and won the Swiss Design Award.
Designers Christa B ö Sch and Cosima gadient have found inspiration in a variety of sci-fi fantasies over the years. For autumn 2019, their important topic is "trisomy", a Chinese Super novel that has been made into a movie. Just like any good science fiction work, the world in trisomy is different from the real world, and the resulting reconstruction works present an unusual harmony between fine tailoring and punk rebellious spirit.
Designers Cosima Gadient and Christa Bösch from Switzerland and Germany founded OTTOLINGER in 2015.
The name OTTOLINGER first appeared on the doorbell of their first studio, and was only for the convenience of delivering office supplies that were fixed.
The two met during their studies at the Basel School of Design. As friends, they reached the same sense of fashion, and together they set off a bold avant-garde challenge in the luxury sector.
