In preparation of our upcoming collection the OSIER team packed their bags and set off forItaly to get inspired, visit suppliers and meet up with our ateliers.
A usual day during our week in bella italia looked like this: each morning, while the sunrise unveiled the foggy hills, we started our day the only way we know how: with an oat milk cappuccino and a vegan croissant!
After planning the tasks for the day and stacking the car with snacks we would start our journey. The Italian country side is a sight for sore eyes. While driving to our meetings we passed by forests changing into fall colours, long lines of olive tree groves and mountains fading on the horizon.
The passion for quality runs in the family
Our fabric supplier starts the meeting by proudly telling us that he is the CEO of his family's company: 9th generation to be precise. Throughout the years this fabric supplier created improvements to the materials they produce and they're now developing innovative and sustainable materials that fit the market need for sustainable brands like OSIER. They work closely with brands like us to create unique, innovative fabrics with a focus on traceability and local production.Our team was able to understand and document all the process behind our materials used for our upcoming NEOMA collection.
Creative minds meet gifted hands
Meeting our artisans is very important to us. Not only do we get a better understanding of their vision as a company and as people but it also allow
s us to get a deeper understanding of their craft and capabilities. When they offer skilful solutions to the projects we discuss: we know we found the right partner to work with! What gets us excited is seeing passionated people working on a collective vision.
To us, this is what the fashion industry of tomorrow is all about: a creative solution to the environmental and ethical problems we currently face.
We're thrilled to introduce our new collection NEOMA later this year. We put our heart & soul into it and we're sure you will love the sustainable, vegan pieces as much as we do.
