The Latex Beret is a very versatile key piece that you can use to spice up a lot of the pieces in your closet. As an eye-catching accessory or as a functional rain cap. In the photos you can see the many ways you can wear it: flat on your head, or tuck your hair in, or pull the brim into your forehead and push the hat back, or low on your forehead and over your ears. You can show a little of your fringe, or a lot of it, or tame your mane with the cap's volume.
Like the original filt hat from the Basque country it has a little loop on the top for hanging and drying.
„I've been intrigued by latex as a garment material for clothing for quite some time. It can create a stretched surface but it can also flow warmly. Its deep colors and smooth surface give the designs a unique plasticity and flatter your body.
I have long been tickled by the challenge of making everyday key-pieces out of a material that is more commonly associated with the fetish scene.
For me, the suspense arises between the natural, biodegradable material in its comic-like presence on the one side and timeless designs on the other side."

The TARZA & JANE Style
The blend of latex and classic, rather conservative cuts for everyday life fascinates and inspires us. It puts a completely new spotlight on this material.
We are currently working with designer & model Mona Steinhäußer so we can offer her chic leather harnesses here in the store in the near furture. By the way, Mona recycles leather sofas for her harnesses. Just right!

A fascination for Latex
The latex clothing is designed and manufactured in our small workshop in Aachen. The material is mostly provided by regional suppliers.
