Blank Etiquette's Urban Luxury Reinterpreted

BLANK ETIQUETTE x John Patrick Walder

When Tosca Wyss meets John Patrick Walder, luxury and urban chic collide – the best of both worlds.

Blank Etiquette is an independent fashion label based in Berlin, a city teeming with creative self-confidence and audacity – a description befitting the personality of Tosca Wyss. Percolating through the contemporary offerings of the young designer is an ingeniousness that is so uncommonly found these days. “My aim is to create a vision and a story through every collection by creating a surreal world, to question the real world,” the designer told us.

The label focuses on menswear and around the idea that more is not necessarily better. The point of the whole concept of Blank Etiquette is to distance itself from hyper-consumption.

It explains why the collections are produced in limited quantities only – given they are all considered as limited editions including 5 to 50 pieces with their own unique number, each of these garments is infused with style and singularity.

Who else than a spirited mind to express the grand views of another? As Tosca Wyss associates urban streetwear with refined fabrics, the aesthetic juxtaposition is revisited by John Patrick Walder and his sharp eye for intriguing rural details. As his gift in capturing the beauty of subtle pictorial epiphanies is put on display, the modernity of Blank Etiquette is highlighted. An unvarying celebration of individuality is perceived, along with a sense of ease and finesse. Visions of demolished signs, deserted pavements and sparkling fast cars enrich the urban environment constructed by Blank Etiquette.

Drawing inspiration from both the high-end and the underground, Tosca Wyss and John Patrick Walder's talents make for a strong imagery for the unique Blank Etiquette allure. This is the modern streetwear for sensible and determined individuals.
