Jen Gilpin came from Canada, and Kyle Callahan from New Zealand, but together, the designers behind label-to-know Don’t Shoot the Messengers are total Berliners.
The duo has created a brand well versed in the ways of luxe fabrics and perfect fits.
Experimental craftsmanship and a desire to create precious objects, along with geometry in relation to the body, is the essence of the label.
The best analogue for Don’t Shoot the Messengers is Rick Owens. Like Owens, they drape leather brilliantly and create slinky, unpretentious, geometric cuts with arresting erotic material.
The finest materials are used throughout the collection, lending an exquisite sense of materiality to the captivating forms. The duo is hands on, always challenging each other to find new techniques and perfect their form.
