Little is known about Patrick Hellmann, a quiet designer who designs suits and dresses, creates art and sets up yachts and suites that are in demand among insiders world-wide. There are hardly any reports about his collec- tions and works of art, none at all about him- self. For decades, his collections have been the epitome of classic men‘s outfits. As the child of Belarusian immigrants, the Berliner knows no better how to survive the old in the world of male identity by changing the conditions of access. Patrick Hellmann reanimates the imperial splendour of industrial modernism when houses were given round corners and women wore trouser suits. The epoch of Art Deco did not end with him either; Hellmann derives a law of eternity from its streamli- ned objectivity. With his Patrick Hellmann Schlosshotel in Berlin, the Patrick Hellmann Collection and the Patrick Hellmann Atelier, the quiet designer has created a magnificent world.
