A typical Romanian expression is the inspiration behind the Autumn/Winter collection: ‘Să-l porți sănătoasă’. Literally translated this means “wear it in health”, figuratively you’re wishing the person joy and congratulating them on their new piece. A sentence that recalls the worth of a piece of clothing and lends it significance. The thought which precedes it, is appreciating the things you buy, caring for and delighting in them.
This too, is ISABELL DE HILLERIN label’s aspiration. It pays close attention to treating clothes with respect, as well as appreciating the craftswomen’s time and work that went into creating a piece. The deliberate use of ‘healthy’ and fair materials also play a big part in this. Allowing things the time they need to grow is what Isabell de Hillerin considers to be true luxury, thus generating sustainable quality and individuality.
For the Autumn/Winter 2015/16 collection the designer strongly focused on the essence of her label, traditional craftsmanship plays an even larger role than usual. ISABEL DE HILLERIN’s DNA is more present than ever and gives each piece a unique sensibility. Clean, male cuts and textiles are paired with feminine elegance. The looks are predominantly dark, broken up by accents of blue lavender, and engage through the use of different textures.
