(Italy/The Netherlands, 2021)
In 2021, Hullegie co-founded fashion label Bestiaire.
Bestiaire is born out of an urgent desire to rethink fashion’s current ways, its untenable methods of production, and its personal potential. As an all-round design atelier, we aim to fabricate a space where creative visions, singular stories and sustainable values can merge, clash and converse.
Each of our processes begins at the back of the warehouse. Upon being carefully sourced, our overstock finds and sustainable fabrics are turned into contemporary items by means of artisanal manufacturing. It’s our fresh, detailed and poetic take on design equally informed by our knowledge of traditional tailoring and our roots in creative culture that sets our products apart.
Trends, seasons or gender do not guide or limit us. Instead, we provide time-transcending wardrobe fundamentals for personal interpretation. Finding strength and inspiration in everybody and every body, each of our garments is made to be a subtle stage for one’s own style and story.
