Born in Potsdam Germany November 18th 1944, Wolfgang Joop is one of Germany’s most recognised home grown fashion designers. The two labels he has started are JOOP! and WUNDERKIND, both of which focus on women and men clothing. Joop’s unique style is about suspense, surprise, fantasy, and breaking past the limits and rules. He flirts with incongruity while mixing traditional with new fashion.
WUNDERKIND, in particular, is Joop’s personal vision for contemporary, sophisticated and independent women. It explores Joop’s own taste as well as the contradictions and dualities inherent in each woman. The style uses unexpected and innovative techniques by playing subtlety between structured, tailored, masculine pieces of soft, fluid, feminine shapes in sensual and luxurious fabrics.
WUNDERKIND is sold in 23 countries all over the world in boutiques and department stores; it enjoys a sense of freedom offer while offering a unique take on modern elegance.
