FIRKANT is a Berlin-based fashion label established by the designer Elena Kikina in 2008. Each season Elena Kikina presents an elegant knitwear collection with an outstanding minimalistic design, precise, unusual fit and sophisticated details. The brand name Firkant refers to Elena's favoured design concept: minimalism – where most styles are based on square shapes (firkant = square).
The exquisite designs of Elena artfully highlight some parts of the female body, drape other parts delicately in textile and create a feminine aura of subtle sexapeal and elegant nonchalance. Firkant garments are comfotable, versatile and adapt perfectly to an individual body shape. The Firkant collection is the ideal in today's modern urban environment.
The Firkant collection is produced in Germany and the EU, using high quality materials and state of the art technology (wholegarment). Firkant offers premium sustainable garments at affordable prices.
