For the fw19 collection we got inspired by the life of nomads which is reflected in the use of bold colors, colorful prints and sustainable fabrics.
Our climate is changing drastically, people are migrating and natural resources are running out so the life of the nomad is changing consequently. All is intertwined. As a result, our way of thinking about fashion and clothing needs to be adapted to this new reality.
Our fw19 is designed in function of these changing times. The collection is multifunctional: a dress that can be worn as a jacket or pants that is wrinkle free so you can change from day to night or from casual to chic in just a minute. Our trademark, our hand painted, digitally printed prints are the base of the collection. Helder is always looking for innovative fabrics to work with. The pièce de résistance of this collection is the bright red skirt made out of piñatex.
Piñatex is an innovative natural, sustainably produced textile made from pineapple leaf fiber. The leaves are a byproduct of existing agriculture, and their use creates an additional income stream for farming communities. Piñatex is a textile that was developed for use as a sustainable alternative to both mass-produced leather and polluting synthetic materials, offering a better choice for a better future.
