Beast of the East is a joint project of Kateřina Plamitzerová and Alena Jakubová.
Astral twins Alena and Kateřina met at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague in autumn 2014. We create underwear and nightwear in small series. In addition to our product line we make our own custom garments.
We are in an endless process of seeking nourishing female archetypes, the attributes of which we imprint carefully into each of our pieces. To support the one who wears it. “Women Running with Wolves” by Clarrisa Pinkola Estés brought us on this journey.
From the inside out and back in
The discovered snippets of stories are narrated through inspirational collections They echo in simple products for everyday wear. Our beloved piece is Panties – the guardians of the entrance.
Our products are sewn in the Czech Republic, we choose materials in domestic knitting shops.
slowfood for the soul
In our individual production we like to work with recycling of the old. We also create costumes for various stage artists. The costume allows us to capture the archetype with high accuracy and fantastic freedom. That is why it is an indispensable part of our work, a balancing element.
