Introduction to the "HEIMSTONE SPIRIT"

&

the  "SHELTER" fall-winter 2016-2017 collection.



In this collection we admire the colors and textures of the Alpine Lichen.Kakis, blues and monochrome silhouettes make up the collection.
Soft silks and delicate laces reflect the ice crystals & polar landscapes of the environment, while the wool & alpaga pieces mimic
the gentle texture of the Lichen that the designer was inspired by.
*All the fabrics and prints have been developped by and for Heimstone for love of beautiful patterns and materials.

INSPIRATION

Heimstone tries to get away from the fashion rules and dictatory,
creating along its journeys around the world, travelling in an old car ;
The Heimstone collecions get mature with the seasons, addind colors with the landscapes,
and they all tell a story, born during these trips.

CONVICTION

“You have to be different to be irreplaceable, ”. Steve Jobs.
What now became a course of action was from the beginning a very instinctive conviction : Heimstone will be different.

"The Heimstone style".
... Is spontaneous, singular, creative, active, independant traveller and curious.
The Heimstone woman is androgyne but very sexy & elegant.
Yet, she is rock’n’roll, very Parisian with an international flare.
Heimstone is above all charisma- a style and universe. It’s not just a pretty dress or a pretty jacket.
It assumes the inhibited.
Heimstone woman is of today- a type of woman who understood very early hat progress also integrates true values and sustainability.
Active and free, her travels have created a lifestyle and way of dressing that relates to all women
dealing with awareness and beauty. The Heimstone clients identify themselves at first sight,
sensitive to authentic values, without being nostalgic, she remembers old times,
she integrates eternal believes from nature and interprets modern life.
