Katrien Van Hecke is an emerging womenswear designer hailing from Antwerp, Belgium. Launching her brand in 2010 in Paris her brand has gone on to gain significant interest thanks to her use of fabrication and modern silhouettes. With a strong focus on artisanal luxury wear, pieces are crafted from fine silks and wools, hand dyed using sustainable natural resources. Producing her collections in Belgium, Van Hecke only uses high quality materials that prove their sustainability teamed with hand dying processes utilising natural colourants such as henna, sandalwood and eucalyptus. Each garment is produced as an individual object; this results in considered imperfections and aspect variations that become distinct characteristics. Collections are a reinterpretation of age-old techniques that are brought into the 21st century by modern technology and techniques.
In this collection Van Hecke worked with blocks of wood to develop her prints using ‘primitive printing’, which is a wood stamp process. Using natural dyes in warm colours she created a vibrant collection using nut leaf, buttercup, poppies, henna, sandalwood and beetroot. Silhouettes are modern and light, utilising the pure silk and wool that fabricates her biannual collections. There is a strong Japanese influence to the collection; sleeves are oversized whilst dresses are wide and exaggerated. Working with imperfections the collection offers a new approach to luxury wear of the highest quality and consideration.
