My estate of Eva Hesse – Inspiration for a trend collection


German artist Eva Hesse and her designs served as the inspiration and starting point for the My Estate of Eva Hesse trend collection.

The color range used by Eva Hesse is repeated throughout the palette of soft, natural hues. Fine transparent textiles such as woven silk, leather and also thick, coarse materials such as felt and rope are draped in layers in the back-light. The resulting shades and new shapes become the characteristic features of this collection created for women like Eva Hesse herself – tough and sensitive, feminine and natural, beautiful and self-confident.
