If you asked me what I strive for, I would answer: beauty. And with beauty, I don’t mean a set of standards and perfect proportions. With beauty, I mean the coming together of inspired creativity, innovation, skilful craftsmanship, integrity, commitment, and an open mind and heart. I find beauty in images, in music, in words, as well as in items of clothing, and I like to surround myself with what I find beautiful as it brings me in touch with the magical, mysterious and awe-inspiring experience that is life on our planet Earth.
We are excited to announce our latest collaboration with renowned London make-up artist and clean beauty expert Khandiz Joni! In six chapters and over a course of six months, LISSOME's new series "Raw Beauty" will outline the principles behind clean and healthy beauty by engaging with the following topics of skin care: skin, hair, makeup, body, hands/nails & feet, and fragrance. Khandiz has compiled a multitude of beauty wisdom to advise you on what works best for your skin. And she's curated a selection of brands and products, outstanding equally in their quality and aesthetics.
This series features garments by Peet Dullaert, handmade in the Netherlands, in-house and in local ateliers with Woolmark certified wool. No garments stock is created as all production is made-to-order. This prevents overproduction and creates a work environment with great attention to detail.
