Act is an espadrilles and accessories brand based between Mallorca and Berlin founded by Isabel Rotger and Alex Drobovolny in 2013. After working in communication for several fashion companies, Isabel moved to Berlin and met Alex, CEO of Label Agent. They came up with the idea of Act on a Friday afternoon and the week after, they were already looking for manufacturers for their first collection.
Act is born out of the Mediterranean and each of the brand’s collections is designed around a concept of an everyday, spontaneous act, using series instead of seasons. In 2014, Act launched their first series “Walking” and in 2015 the brand has focused on “Living Room” as the topic for their collection. Act’s great attention to detail not only shows on their products, hand-made in Spain using 100% natural leather and suede, but on the campaigns for their series and the design of their website and promotional materials.
Isabel and Alex have just embarked on their next adventure and have started collaborating on the design of their first sunglasses collection and a line of sweaters that will see the light later this year.
