For Autumn/Winter 2010, hessnatur has launched two collections, hessnatur by Eviana Hartman and hessnatur by Miguel Adrover. Its latest initiative in sustainable fashion, hessnatur by Eviana Hartman, combines the world?s finest natural textiles from hessnatur with the integrity and simplicity of Eviana?s modern and functional designs. Together, hessnatur and Eviana have articulated the compatibility of environmental responsibility and aesthetic sophistication.
Eviana’s initial collection for hessnatur plays on classics, with a unique design sensibility. The thirteen-piece collection includes modular pieces for all body types. These pieces were designed to offer a cool, modern twist on the everyday wardrobe essentials that every woman wants and needs. Eviana created the perfect winter coat of dense yet lightweight pure virgin boiled wool, inspired by the classic motorcycle jacket; an ultra long and slim crew neck sweater with rib sleeves and a center back seam; an equestrian-inspired patchwork leggings of contrasting panels of ribbed and non-ribbed, ultra-thick and body-shaping jersey. Included in the collection are several pieces that provide multiple uses. The pure wool and cashmere oversized cardigan is an exaggerated take on the classic that drapes on the body, and can be worn asymmetrically, as a tunic, or even as a scarf. As Eviana says, “I love pieces that are extremely useful but elevated by unusual silhouette and detail.”
In addition, hessnatur continues to work with CFDA award winner Miguel Adrover, whose collection this season focuses on textured knits, ethnic knit patterns, and menswear-inspired pieces, all in hessnatur’s pure virgin wools and alpacas.
