quiet

The Autumn/Winter 2013 collection ‘quiet’ by isabell de hillerin creates an image of preserved fragments in deep ice.

Long-forgotten traditional elements are hidden like fossils. Barely visible, but strong marine blue waters brake up the ice revealing black stones framed by green moss. Moldovan embroidery and Romanian fabrics appear in contemporary fashion, forming a new identity. Quiet. Elegant.

isabell de hillerin stands for elegance, structured cuts and details which remind of an old tradition. In recent years the ancient fabrics industry in Romania and Moldova has been driven to near extinction. To strengthen this traditional artisan industry, her label works with local Romanian and Moldovan manufacturers to support the production of handmade materials. Her aim is to push these highly skilled craftsmen by publicizing and utilizing their cultural skills in a way that hasn’t been done before.
