today we have got to talk about the new heinui fall 2014 collection. you know i love a good hand motif, so of course i went a little nuts over the amazing embroidered details and intricate hand prints. the pretty details were mixed perfectly with workwear inspired pieces in japanese chambray and utilitarian silhouettes. the standout piece for me was a certain pinafore dress made of a black cotton twill with silver embroidered hands, and a few lovely smock dresses constructed around the same theme. but more than anything, i just love the way she was able to take such rugged materials and turn them into perfectly feminine and wearable pieces.
if you aren’t familiar with the brand, heinui was launched just last year by claire pignot, a graduate of the école supérieure des arts appliqués duperré who worked with gaspard yurkievich and peter som before breaking out on her own.
