Barely a year old, RB&K is the brainchild of Rebecca Bargas, an international designer whose experience in the fashion industry stretches back over a decade. With offices in Vietnam, Germany and France, the brand’s smart and playful clothing takes its inspiration from Bargas’ diverse heritage and travel experiences.
“I come from a multicultural background with a mix of four nationalities, and through my own experiences and travels I am constantly observing the people, architecture, cuisine, street life and attitudes of people in each city I visit,” she explains.
As a result, RB&K’s designs are often a mixture of east and west. The designer’s recent move to Berlin helped to create her new Geometrip collection, which is made up of three mini collections, Trendy/Urban, Casual and Pop Art. Drawing upon Berlin’s stark, geometric architecture, Geometrip adds a playful, colourful edge to solid lines and prints.
Within the next year, RB&K aims to distribute more widely from Paris and Berlin, with plans to debut in Tokyo and Australia by 2016.
