The multi-talented designer established his own label in 2007 with a collection of mens shirts. Despite the strict framework it quickly revealed his innovative approach to cut and design. Kristians signature style is edgy and futuristic, yet extremely wearable, attracting men who see themselves as visionaries.
Kristian Steinberg was born in Tallinn, Estonia in 1976. The family fled Soviet Union to start a new life in Sweden, ‘Moving to Sweden and leaving everything behind taught me to start over at any point, and with even stronger enthusiasm.’
Discovering his desire for fashion while doing a degree in Chemistry at the Royal University of Technology in Stockholm, he then went on to study at University College of Arts Craft and Design and the famous Stockholm Academy – a strict institution specialised in traditional cutting and tailoring. In Central St Martins, Kristian continued to develop a strong signature of anatomical cutting – inspired by the anatomy of the human body- and ultra tailoring, his final collection being chosen to represent St Martins menswear at Weekend Le Vif in Brussels. Music has been Kristians constant muse: ‘My collections are born from music- I want them to live like a rock star, and die when the last fan has died.”
Previously, Kristian has been working with designers like Alexander McQueen, Rafael Lopez, Amanda Wakeley and Marios Schwab.
