De Mil was established by Coenraad De Mol in 1997 and has moved into male-inspired, gender-neutral clothing in 2007.
Although a master patternmaker and a true constructionist, De Mil takes a new-world approach to clothing. Coenraad doesn’t regard gender neutrality as just a theme, “it’s what I do,” he says. He caters to those who don’t have a place was well as those who choose not to be boxed-in by societal norms or conventions.
