The wearable architectures of Amélie Riech are engineered for elegance while embracing artisanal methods. Trained as an architect, holding a diploma in fashion design, and growing up between Paris and Berlin, Riech is adept at spanning worlds.
In Paris, Riech established herself as an editor, stylist and consultant for international publications and fashion brands. She founded uncommon matters, originally as a platform for her personal artistic endeavors. The first works were limited editions and unique pieces for exhibition. Due to their simple intricacy and fluid usage of both fine and novel materials including porcelain and glass and high tech ceramics, Riech’s precise couture pieces quickly found a following, both in galleries and high-end boutiques.
Additionally, Riech has designed capsule collections for the house of Paco Rabanne, French silversmith Christofle and other luxery brands. She is also designing accessories and objects f.e. perfume flacons.
Riech’s work exemplifies the highest levels of craftsmanship, bringing tradition-rich methods and materials into the most contemporary forms. Each piece is formed in concert with a design philosophy informed by experimental and conceptual daring, confident minimalism and special execution. Timeless in nature and built for permanence, Riech’s designs are immanently collectable, yet made to gracefully adorn the curves of the body.
