An extraordinary collection that combines art and fashion in an individual and very special way was presented this week at a festive event at the new Meliá Hotel in Senckenberg Anlage. It is the result of a collaboration between Frankfurt event professional Kai Mann and artist Nathali von Kretschmann (Nathali vK). Their joint brand "RYCH - Pop Art Clothing" is literally art that dresses. Each garment is unique and therefore a unique work of art.
At an early age, graphic design graduate Nathali vKdiscovered her love for classic pop art. Her works are inspired by the greats of this art form, such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. But instead of copying their role models, the artist has succeeded in creating a style all her own, which can now just be worn. The garments are made one at a time and are handmade, artistically pimped with paints, patches, sprays and more. In total, the production of a RYCH garment takes about 3 weeks.
The guests at the Meliá Hotel, where some of Nathali vK's works are currently on display, were able to get an impression of the exciting collection during the evening, which was moderated by business journalist and stock market specialist Mick Knauff. The musical accompaniment was provided by singer and musical performer Jimmie Wilson, who has just joined the ranks of restaurateurs in Darmstadt and, with the opening of the Larsie Mae Café, has established a second mainstay alongside music. The event was rounded off by a live link to RTL presenter Wolfram Kons. With him, one of Nathali vK's pop-up works was auctioned off for the benefit of the Ukraine aid of the RTL foundation "Wir helfen Kindern".
Nathali vK and Kai Mann, who have been working together since the beginning of 2021, were able to inspire the guests of the event with their collection. So if you don't just want to hang art on your wall, but want to wear a very individual piece of art in the form of a POP ART style garment on your body, RYCH is just the right place for you.
