This product line was launched at the end of 2016, after a year of horrific attacks and excesses of violence in Europe/Germany, most recently in Berlin.
It is a fashion brand for everyday wearable fashion with protective functions against attacks, e.g. Stitch and cut protection, blow, flame and theft protection, spy protection and ballistic protection.

Here are a few examples:
Here is a “normal” protective vest that can be worn under the jacket, in this case not only stitch- and cut-proof- but even bullet-proof.
An unobtrusive model from my development at response couture.
In the style of a windbreaker, this garment offers stitch and cut protection, also at the neck, as well as data spying protection for radio keys and credit/chip cards.
Continued wind and rain protection and increased visibility at night due to reflective design.
A high tech model from my development at response couture. In the style of a biker jacket, this garment offers stitch and cut protection, fire and acid protection, light ballistic protection and data spy protection, also at the neck. It also offers increased visibility at night through reflection design.
A shoulder bag from my development at response couture. In the style of a laptop bag, it offers stitch and cut protection, slash protection also against axe attacks, light ballistic protection and data spy protection.
In addition, it has effective theft protection and separation protection of the strap thanks to built-in steel ropes and carabiners.
Furthermore, it offers increased visibility at night through reflex strips.
The bag can be held with the rear arm slings like a shield to protect against the body and also protects the forearm and hand from injuries, especially in knife attacks.
A scarf from my development at response couture.
This provides stitch and cut protection for the neck and chest area thanks to a flexible but extremely effective lining material.
It is also night-reflective for personal protection. It can also be wrapped around the hand as an effective cut protection in case of attacks or broken glass.
