“ I never considered myself as a fashion designer, I just create unique, timeless, comfortable, relaxed, hand made, highest quality functional products, which gets better with age.
I use only natural fiber fabrics like wool, silk, cotton, flax, hemp, because it ages beautifully and has a greater longevity.
All the clothing I make has very simple shapes. Simplicity reveals beauty of fabrics and details, and as well makes person who is wearing it feel more aware of his personality, character and his own beauty."
Lina di Luce
Lina is half Lithuanian half French, she speaks six languages. She lives now between two countries and is very passionate about Asian countries and culture.
“While travelling in Japan and studying japanese, I discovered wabi-sabi, which changed my perception of the world. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include simplicity, modesty, emptiness, irregularity, roughness, austerity, solitude. Many years ago, particularly among the Japanese nobility, understanding emptiness and imperfection was honored as tantamount to the first step to satori (enlightenment).“
