The Mongrels met Marlies Knöfel at a fashion week dinner in 2012.
Immediately they fell in love with that very special and classy person and her lovely husband.
After having a conversation about wearing silk blouses in winter, she decided to visit the Mongrels in their shop and buy her first silk pin-blouse (Matilda in electric blue).
She still visits the mongrels in their shop – always together with her husband – buys the most special blouse from the collection and tells them exciting storeis about art, fashion and history from her numerous voyages with her husband.
On this pic on a boat trip in Hamburg, she is wearing striped Evita blouse, satined Stevie trousers and Stevie Blazer – all from the SS2014 collection.
When did you start wearing mongrels in common?
I started with my first blouse in 2012.
Why do you like mongrels in common blouses and suits mostely?
I love the great colours and precise cut of that line.
How do you combine mongrels in common pieces?
I combine mongrels pieces with Armani jeans and trousers. I love to combine a mongrels silk blouse with my Gucci leather-trousers.
When do you wear the label – to which occasion?
Everytime – on the street and when I go out for dinner. I bought this striped blouse for a boat trip.
What kind of labels do you also like?
Dries van Noten and Chanel!….of course!
How does your job or your environment influence your style?
I try to be well-dressed all the time…
Which is your favorite “mongrels-piece” and why?
I like all mongrel-blouses – that´s why I bought them. I have a neon-yellow one, which fits perfect to a white pair of jeans, but the striped Evita from SS14 I like most, because it reminds me to the nordic elements water and wind. I am from Hamburg and in my heart a nordic girl.
