Canadian fashion designer Christopher Bates officially announces his celebrated menswear line is now retailing with leading luxury department store Breuninger in Germany. The Spring/Summer 2021 Collection was launched in the designer’s new headquarters and showroom space in Toronto’s Eaton Centre last summer and features many pieces that are modern and edgy, that will add a new level of vibrancy to your wardrobe with the introduction of new iridescent and neon fabrics.

“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 Christopher Bates, Creative Director.

Germany – Destination for Style

With stores being closed due to the pandemic the Christopher Bates spring/summer 2021 men’s collection is available exclusively on Breuninger.com, one of the most sought-after online destinations for premium and luxury fashion and lifestyle. Breuninger is not only one of the leading online retailers for designer fashion in Germany but also services important affluent markets in Austria and Switzerland.

Select products include: pima cotton knits, jersey cotton sweatshirts, his bestselling Romeo kiss print dress shirt, coated bomber jackets, contemporary tailored blazers and pants, and black velvet slippers embroidered with a lipstick kiss. Featuring cutting-edge materials and artisanal level craftsmanship all the products are proudly made in Italy, except for the signature kiss print shirt which is still proudly made in Canada.

Christopher Bates – Canadian Design Icon

Toronto-based, Christopher Bates continues to be at the forefront of luxury menswear in Canadian fashion since founding his namesake label in 2008. In 2019, he won the Canadian Menswear Designer of the Year Award at the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards. He retails with leading department stores including Nordstrom, Breuninger, and Harry Rosen. Inspired by the exclusive fabrics and artisanal Italian producers he works with, Bates’ commitment to quality and authenticity is absolute. This commitment, in harmony with his honed talent for timeless design, clever details, and bold colour palette is what has established him as a renowned expert in style.
