THE HERITAGE ISSUE

Leaving a fashion legacy

What legacy would you like to leave behind? A rather profound thought, especially in context of the fashion industry, which is often perceived as superficial. We frequently ponder and discuss this at length. To check in. Are we stil on a path to leave the world a little better than we found it?

Over the course of three generations in the fashion industry, we’ve experienced many changes. Change is constant. One has to adapt to stay relevant. The process can be rather destabilising, but a shared value system is the one common denominator that ties even strangers together.

It’s a way of living, of interrelating with and appreciating beauty in everything around us. It’s how we build authentic relationships.

The legacy we hope to leave behind is a platform where people are liberated from preconceived ideas. Free to explore their individuality. To question their style choices in a responsible way and to find their voices in the clothes they enjoy to wear. To make dressing fun. To always remember: quality trumps quantity.

We undertake to stay true to the est. heritage of simplicity, quality and beauty. It’s a lifestyle choice.
