For the misfits, the wicked, the weird
„I was sooooo proud to see my pieces in an actual shop! London inspired me a lot in what I wanted to do and in which direction I wanted to go. As I am connected to the punk scene since I was a teenager, music is and will always be one of the biggest inspirations for me and my fashion.“
The alternative & slowfashion Label INDYANNA was founded in 2011 by young fashion design graduate Anna, who just moved from Germany to London. During this time, every item was a one of kind piece, produced with a small sewing machine that her mom specifically sent to England.
With a bagpack full of handmade pieces, ambition & endurance, Anna went from shop to shop, to show her unique designs to possible buyers. The first store to stock Indyanna, was Shop 178 in Brick lane.
After two years of selling handmade items in different stores, Anna went back to Germany to start a new adventure: Her own store in Berlin
While designing and sewing under her brand in a small workplace for some years & selling the handmade pieces international, Anna always kept an eye on her goal. Till 2014, when she finally opened her own concept store in Berlin - Friedrichshain.
The alternative fashion store for weird people follows the concept to make every visit an adventurous experience. Between 90s/00s nostalgic, the conscious non-existing uniformity and specific oddity, you can find handmade designer pieces, international labels and the fashion studio & tailor room for the in house brand Indyanna.
After exciting initial years, the small business grew with Sophia (Sewing - Indyanna), Jessica ( Store - Customer Service - E-Commerce), Denise (Store - Social Media - E-Commerce) & Katharina (Store - Social Media) as new members of the Coexist family, while Anna designing & creating more extraordinary items & managing this creative space with love & passion. Since 2018 you can also find Coexist online & shop their items from all around the world.
Show the world who you are !
Stay proud. Stay fierce. STAY WEIRD !!
„As fashion & clothing is one of the greatest ways to show yourself to the world, we wanted to give everyone the chance to show their unique selfs, exactly as they want to.
Our aim was to create a space for the misfits, the wicked, the WEIRD.
A place for the strange & special where they can express themselves.
There is no need to hide. Be creative, be brave, try something new, find yourself.“
