The Berlin Project

Wearing the city.


Designer: ElektroCouture


When you fly into Berlin at night the first thing to welcome you are the bright dots and lines of the city lights against the dark ground, full with the promise of excitement.

The oversized knitwear design of the Berlin Coat captures this moment.

The coat is made of extra-fine Oekotex 100-certified Merino Wool, which makes it lightweight and protects you from the extreme weather while also providing a soft grip. The pattern of the coat shows the Berlin city map, graphically stylised and pixelated.

The garment is knitted on one of our hacked Jacquard machines.

The LEDs in the coat are powered by a high-quality battery placed inside the welt pocket, which provides enough power to glow the whole day.

Additionally, in the pocket, a layer of special anti-electro-smog textile directs all electromagnetic radiation away from you. The side pockets and sleeve hems are then also lined with a cotton jersey.

This design is not only a prototype, it has been developed to be produced in high numbers – made with love and passion in Europe.
