WORLD OF WINGATE
In October 2020 WINGATE has opened its first flagship store in Germany, in the Herzog & de Meuron designed, Fünf Höfe, Maffeistrasse 6, 80333 in the heart of Munich.
WINGATE, founded in 2017, has celebrated international success with its timeless and high-quality collections produced in Germany and Italy. Designer and owner Daniel Wingate, born in Florida, USA, has created a collection for an independent and confident woman of today who values individual, unique design. “Ageless, Sizeless, Fearless” is his philosophy and basis for all WINGATE creations with two collections each year that promote local production and a slow fashion credo. “WINGATE is my statement. After years of experience designing in the US and Europe for many distinguished brands, I felt the need to create my own collection for all women looking for confident, bold, and beautifully made clothes”, states Daniel Wingate.
As Munich is the premier location, Daniel Wingate has invited an array of in-residence designers that personify great design made in Germany. A space to share and create a new dialogue with customers through special events and a curated, eclectic product offer. Enhancing the WINGATE collections customers can discover furniture and accessories from Schönbuch, jewelry from FOVE and Artworks from Christian Muscheid, all based in Germany.
Simply Beautiful – has long been a credo to which Schönbuch wholeheartedly subscribes. Taking function as its starting point, the Bavarian maker of furnishings and accessories creates exceptional modular furnishings and accessories creates exceptional modular furniture systems as well as individual pieces, accessories and special editions. Having initially focused on entrance areas, Schönbuch proves its expertise and sense of style today in any interior space. The “WINGATE Munich” store shows once again their expertise for highest quality design and fashion know how.
Frederica Prock combines the best of both worlds – her mother’s artistic flair and her father’s penchant for all things technical – in a label and collection that is “far more than love”: Fove. Her latest collection is handmade in a Co-Studio in the heart of Kreuzberg, Berlin. The resulting organic and mismatching statement pieces compliment and complement their wearer. Daniel and Frederica met in Berlin, both following their own rules and dreams as creatives with a mutual respect for individual dynamic design.
Christian Muscheid set his goal on creating a new aesthetic imagery for the art world. His studies at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich led the artist to establish his studio and home for all creative endeavors. Daniel and Christian worked previously in 2016 on a Fashion meets Art project and for the opening of the WINGATE flagship Christian has created new works: ISLE OF MAN, 2020, acrylic on canvas, 240 cm x 240 cm is highlighted in the window and DALLAS 2020, acrylic on canvas, 150cm x 150cm enhances the stairwell to the private showroom below.
All creatives collaborating with WINGATE reinforce the exclusive and inclusive collection concept and celebration of great design in Munich. WINGATE Munich is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 7pm and Saturdays from 10am to 6pm.
