The basis of Frank Leder's design philosophy is strongly rooted in the culture and history of his native country, Germany. Frank studied fashion design at the highly recognized Central Saint Martins' College of Art and Design in London, England. In 2000, he began a line of womenswear and has since transitioned his focus into his eponymous men's label. With every passing season, Leder has been steadfast in referencing traditional German workwear and tailoring. His use of certain fabrics, namely Deutschleder and Schladminger, emphasize his devotion to producing authentic, homegrown garments. The strength of his collection stems not only from the historical elements used in each piece, but also the interesting and playful sociopolitical themes that he creates around each season's offering.
