Straight cut, rounded at the hem.
The most striking detail of this purist wool coat with a stand-up-collar is the rounded hem. Both reach-in pockets are set in the dividing seam in the middle, allowing them to almost disappear from sight. The yarn and the fabric with the soft touch come from Germany, the coat is made in the Netherlands.
The most from the least. Fashion by Elsien Gringhuis
Striking minimalism characterizes the fashion of Elsien Gringhuis from the Netherlands. But what seems simple at first glance turns out to be astonishingly complex when closely examined. An unusual fold in the fabric here, a rounded off corner there, or fine geometric elements: these are designs where perfection pervades to the level of detail. Designs employing basic elements, which transcend seasonal collections. That’s how Elsien Gringhuis resists the short half-life oft he fashion industry. The classical colors of blue, grey and black support the clear, enduring lines. Elsien Gringhuis‘ complex designs are both functional and can be worn for different several occasions because their designer always wants to extract the most from the least, which is why she takes care to create with as little waste as possible. The following pieces are made of wool, in her own studios in the Netherlands.
