Inspiration for the collections
Starting from the simplest geometric shape, the square, we have draped fabrics and tried to unite these straight lines with the curved, female body. Our main fabrics are a thick flattering stretch viscose that sculpts the body and a silk crepe that drapes elegantly. As highlight materials we use metal coated cotton, luxurious silk duchesse and a thick bonded lace.
The artist Hilma af Klint's fine sense of colour in her abstract paintings inspired to a base palette of black, white and deep navy blue combined with peach-orange, powder pink and dusty aqua blue as accent colours.
Later in winter, mustard yellow accentuates the garments. The patterns for our silk scarves are inspired by Sonia Delaunay painted textiles. The prints for the dresses are based on geometric shapes that are stacked on each other to create neat, messy mosaics.
The creative process
Fashion is about creativity. In the process of designing there should be place for experimenting. All our dresses are a result of a genuine design process. Wendy loves working with old fashion methods like draping and hand drawing and to combine them with modern techniques such as laser cutting and 3D printing.
Studio Heijne´s ambition is to continue developing our "customise" concept and start integrating new technologies (3D-printing / laser cutting) directly into the creation and production process.
