Starting with the Christopher Bates spring/summer 2021 men’s collection, launching exclusively on Breuninger.com, the debut features a strong selection of premium products suitable for the German market: pima cotton knits; jersey cotton sweatshirts; the brand’s bestselling Romeo kiss print dress shirt; coated bomber jackets; contemporary tailored blazers and pants; and black velvet slippers embroidered with a lipstick kiss round out the collection.

True to the designer’s signature style, pieces are made with cutting-edge materials and artisanal level craftsmanship, and are produced in either Italy or Canada. 

“Germany is a key fashion market, not just in Europe, but globally. I am thrilled to launch our brand there with such an iconic, upscale retailer as Breuninger. It’s a dream come true,” said Bates.

The brand currently retails in other leading department stores including Nordstrom and Harry Rosen. 

The Toronto-based designer has been at the forefront of luxury menswear in Canadian fashion since founding his namesake label in 2008. He won the Canadian Menswear Designer of the Year Award at the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards in 2019, and has been called on for numerous design collaboration including with Air Canada, Harry Rosen and even MTV.
