Dutch designer Sebastiaan Kramer and his collaborator Sjaak Hullekes challenge the establishment by infusing their year-old menswear line Arnheim Fashion with subtle statements and a tongue-in-cheek sensibility. Arnheim combines the designers' individual labels—Sebastic and Sjaak—incorporating their fondness for precise cuts and practicality. The Sjaak line is more melancholic and mature while Sebastic is young and easygoing. For his Sebastic line, Kramer prefers, "supple fabrics, mainly jerseys, that symbolize the carefree." While Hullekes likes to play with duality. "I always try to create a feeling of suspension in the use of fabrics: Matte versus glossy, soft versus harsh, but comfort remains key."
